Re: Match highlights and other videos/audios of Ernests

Finally the BBC special on Ernests. Not good quality, but better than nothing:

I turned off the match with Verdasco. As Ernests himself...

Re: Haas: "You can't buy ATP points, otherwise Gulbis would be Number 1 in the world"

Ernests seems to be living rent free in a lot of people's heads :smoke:

Re: All About Ernests - Interviews and Articles

That was exactly the feeling I got, Eliande. Haas and Federer are good friends. I'm guessing they've had a discussion or two about Ernests.

I wonder when they're going to say something about...

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Sorry if this has been asked before. I haven't read the whole thread.

I know players aren't going to eat a big meal directly before a big match, but I'm sure they need to an hour or two ahead of...

Re: All About Ernests - Interviews and Articles

Simon's whole interview struck me as someone who was basically repeating the same things we've all heard. While I'm sure the players have more inside knowledge than we do, I doubt if they all know...

Re: Haas slams Gulbis

Ernests has never said anything derogatory about a player's character. He just said that interviews are boring, not that the players are.

To imply that Gulbis would pay for points if he could rather...

Could someone help me out here, please? I had company at the most inopportune time this morning - right as the third set was starting!

So I had to entertain my (uninvited) relatives who stayed until...

Re: All About Ernests - Interviews and Articles

There is a topic in the General Discussion thread about an interview with Gilles Simon. Simon dishes on several players and it's pretty interesting:

He only mentions Ernests once and I'm not sure...

Re: Ernests' Interesting Characteristics

I agree his speech is clear, but I do feel he often (not always) speaks rapidly. And we all appreciate his sense of humor, but I also think we "get him" better because we're fans. A lot of people...

Re: Ernests Is Back to Stay - the Cheering Thread

Now I'd love to see him and Tommy play again on grass when they're both at 100%. Although they've played each other too many times lately.:)

Anyone have a picture of what I understand was a godawful...

Re: Gulbis: "I like joint tournaments because at least you see some ladies around"

Disappointing, isn't it?

I didn't even watch the RG final because I've gotten tired of Nadal and couldn't make myself support Ferrer anymore.

Re: Gulbis: "I like joint tournaments because at least you see some ladies around"

Totally agreeing with you on this, jade08.

Saying you like to be around women isn't exactly a put down to them.

And I'm glad you brought up the "situation in Sweden". That has never bothered me...
