Well, he sure likes living on the edge. Arguing with the umpire, even if you're right, it's not going to help. He's done that before, same outcome. Ernie, you boy...

On to the next tournament and waiting for the doubles here.

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this match so bare with me a few minutes. First I just want to say that Ernests' game seems to be getting back in form! He is playing a lot better than he has been from earlier this year! I think we are finally going in the right direction. Obviously today's biggest problems were mental. Although I find it incredibly sexy/amusing when he kicks off at an umpire, I wish it wouldn't affect him so much. He needs to be able to bring his focus back and relax right away after something like that happens. I don't blame him for being upset, and the warning on top of that just fueled the fire but he does need to find some way to relax himself. That has been a factor his whole career!
It was clear Ernests could have won that match. Milos played well but Ernests was much stronger! The most beautiful part of the match was when Ernests fought and brought it to 5-all in the second set! That was an amazing game! The commentator joked that "And all of a sudden Ernests learned how to play tennis", although I thought that was rude it had some truth in it. Ernests was so patient that game, which can be rare for him.
Overall, I'm sad about Ernests lack of control & I'm sad we didn't get another pilot interview but I'm happy his game seems to be improving. I'm also really glad I got to see him on TV! Win or loose he always makes me feel great! Smile on my face the whole time! I look forward to his next tournament!
Also the commentators talked about his coaching for a long time. They kept saying how great Hernan was for him and how Ernests is starting to mature under his teaching but they wondered why Ernests was working with multiple coaches. It was clear they didn't understand his situation either. I hope we can get that sorted out soon. It really is driving me crazy!

I didn't like her either! I felt like she got picky with Ernests after he yelled at her, which wasn't right. Like I said, she was adding fuel to the fire.

I agreeeeeee 100% Courtney! I'm not bummed at all about this match, well maybe just a little. But overall, wow, his game looked soo good, many times in that match. His form is almost completely back. Yes he mentally lost this match but he will eventually overcome that in the future. I missed seeing both his brilliance and craziness so much! And I'll have to be honest the comment about there being no pilot interview probably bums me out the most! xD So yeah, we still got Team Crazy to cheer for girls! Then after that can wait to see how he progresses even more on the coming tournaments.
P.s. I'm so tired of all the insults about Ernests on twitter and everywhere else. E is only human after all.

Di, these moments are going to happen again eventually, hopefully they'll be fewer in time. So we might as well keep positive and try to move on, the truth is he played much better. If only he'd give up "chatting" and decide to not get mad but get even, sort of speak, you know? I for one I'm happy I saw him on clay, I missed him sliding and throwing drop-shots and all that.

Hope you'll feel better soon

I KNOW! I was mostly sad because we wouldn't get a pilot interview & he is always so wonderful in those! And we need a new interview!

Although his maturity has been a problem over the years, people need to realize that he just started to mature last year. Before that he wasn't as focused on it. It will take a long time for him to be able to control his mental strength and we can't expect him to mature as fast as other players because he is completely different! He has come a long way though and I do believe he can overcome the obstacles he places for himself.

You get used to it eventually. Just think that if it wouldn't change your opinion anyway, you might aswell ignore it right away Blink your eyes and erase.

Default Re: European Clay Court Season Cheering Thread!

I just want to add this:- when I see Ernests getting angry and upset,I dont really think so badly of him,frustrated yes of course.

He reminds me of me when I went off the rails,got so upset and angry,and consumed so much energy. So I have an emotional connection,and it hurts me inside,but believe me I hope he can recognise one day that being angry and upset in an important situation does more harm than good,and really does sap your energy mentally and physically,believe me I speak from experience.

If he can handle situations that are stressful in a more positive way then I think he will progress as a player and a person,there was nothing wrong with his game today,other than fragility on serve.

Thanks for understanding my point of view!

EDIT:- The social networking sites are breeding grounds for unhelpful,unnecessary hate,its very regrettable,and believe me I wont be reading them.
