True, I've been thinking about that too but I just didn't know how to explain. It's like saying "that is the way it should've gone, and there was no other way to win that match". If he thinks that during the match, he's lost everytime. But then again, you can never be sure if the words that were written down on esports.lv were really exactly his words.

Evita, I meant that the list went on in my mind and I know how long it is

Well, the Russian idiom could be translated by this English one: "It is easy to be wise after the event" (though literal translation is very different). No use in talking why the match was lost and what could have been done now that it's over. I guess Ernie meant this, though I haven't read the article and I'm no expert in Latvian.

Because you think you can be sure the things he says are exactly his thoughts?..

I don't know if he gave the PC in English or not if there were English-speaking journalists there, then he probably answered in English, then the Latvian journos translated his quotes into Latvian, and we translate them back into English... A lot of subtleties could be lost there

Horrible lack of information about Ernests does wonders with people's knowledge of Latvian language (and Russian swear words )
M Rīmenis in his blog (http://sports.delfi.lv/news/analysis...hp?id=24798609) mentions that Ernests had to write an explanation letter to ATP officials because of journalist's (Rolands Norietis) complaint about denied interview in Munich - no sanctions were imposed (there wasn't official press conference). And again rumors of revenge from Lemberg's controlled media

So that was what the "business talk" Cath and I could witness was about Could know it had something to do with the press though.

probably that's no news to the most of you, yet I had never read it before so I dare to post it here even if it's a year old.
