OK, as soon I find a good name for this thread, it'll be renamed :))

So this tie will be held in Liepāja and not in Rīga or Jūrmala.
And Kārlis Lejnieks will be the team captain :eek:

Ok everyone! Davis Cup is FAST approaching & I will be in attendance as I said before. I also might be attending with a media credential. (not sure yet, but it looks promising)
IF I do get to sit in the press conferences and or do private interviews, I want all of you to send in your questions that you may have for the tennis players! Let me know and I'll see what I can do when the time comes! :yeah:

Thanks! Not really counting on anything here, I only hope Latvians will show ambition and play the best they can. Go Latvia!

Hey everyone! Greetings from rainy Latvia! Today was an amazing day! Ernests put on a good show & the crowd was great. They had some of the hockey fan club there that made sure to keep things loud. It was sad Andis lost but kind of expected. Andis played well though. Some great points in there!I'm getting my media credential tomorrow so PLEASE send in any questions that you have. I need your help! :yeah:

Good job!

That's very nice Courtney. Seeing Vika at their match made me wonder, could you ask him if he knows that he has some WTA support during his big matches e.g. via twitter (Vika, Peer, Lepchenko).

Ernests - the ultimate media liaison officer ;) It's great he'll get it for you, but shouldn't there be people handling this kind of organizational stuff? Back to the subject. I'd love you simply to remind him of the fact that he has a devoted fan base that sticks to him for better and for worse (for richer, for poorer etc) ;) As of questions: let the man talk. Natural conversation is more valuable than a simple Q&A. Especially with such a free-minded spirit as E. Good luck tomorrow!

Maybe you could ask him about the reasons he lost in the US Open? I watched the some of the match and I know Johnson played rather well but still Ernests was the favourite.

Ernests won his second single match today!!! I'm so happy for him.

I wanted you to ask him if he is going to play the qualification at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow this year. ;)

So...Latvia lost that tie. Ukraine was a tough opponent, so the result isn't that bad. If not for this ridiculous fifth set of the doubles (from a 4:1 lead, to 4:6) they could've won :( It's just sad Latvians couldn't close it with an overall win.

Hey everyone! Due to time issues, I did interview both Karlis & Ernests but was very brief. Still, I'm proud they were my first ever interviews! I'll try to post them within the next couple of days. Should have my pictures up sometime tomorrow. :D Hopefully I'll get a more conversational interview in Cincinnati next year. I agree, it's better to be natural and let the man take over! hehe!

Uh.. Vika was there supporting her boyfriend on the other team :lol:
