'The Gulbis genie was out of the bottle, and that’s a dangerous proposition for any player' Peter Bodo.

His article his mostly on Tommy Haas but it's worth to read for his comment on the match.

Great achievement coming back from 0:2 against a really good player. I was too nervous to watch the match most of the time though
And now I´m nervous for the next round, they will probably put him on a minor court with no challenge system, just hope Ernests can keep his cool and finally advance past round 2 in a GS otherwise this win is as good as nothing.

That's true, he hasn't been in the third round of a Grand Slam in forever and this is a great opportunity to do that. But the line calls in this year's US Open have been horrible (not just in Ernest's match) so I worry about him being on an outside court as well. But - his opponent is an American so maybe they will put him on a TV court with challenges again

The guy on Novotny's left is who I believe is Janis. Not sure who is on Novotny's left but from his profile, he looks similar to Papa!
He is Nikita, his good friend....he is traveling with with since spring time, i guess!!

thanks for the pics!!

He is playing against an American so there is a good chance he will get another TV court, however it could go either way. The American he is playing is unknown to me, but I heard he is a good player so anything is possible there.

I thought about Nikita but I wasn't sure. It's been awhile since I've seen him too and he looks kind of different now doesn't he? I really do think it's the hair that through me off. Stop cutting your hair off people! I think Nikita WAS in Cincinnati but didn't realize it until now. He never went to the practice courts with Ernests but was at his match sitting with Dominic. I was too busy trying to figure out Dominic that I overlooked Nikita. Shame on me! Wonder what he's been doing now. (besides traveling with Ernests) Last I heard he was doing a bit of coaching.

Thanks for the correction! When Courtney pointed it out I also realized that he looked much older than Kristaps' age. I apologize for the error. Anyhow, he seems to really care about Ernie and seems to be a great friend for that matter.

I've said this before and will say it again-- today's officiating is ill-equipped to deal with the new kind of tennis that the young crop of players are playing these days which include Ernie, Anderson, Belluci to name a few (these are the ones I've actually seen play in person) because they play such a high-risk, high-speed game. When these very tall and hunky guys go for their shots, the balls are too fast for the naked eye and how are you supposed to see them when they just nick the lines, and especially from the vantage point of your chair on the side of the court? The umpire has a better view but he has other things to deal with. It is a challenge and a disadvantage for these players, to be sure, and I bet they have already complained about this.

I went to the US Open last year during qualifiers week and the officials were pretty poor. Lot of players and fans were complaining about calls. It really is a shame! The commentators also dug into the poor performance from officials. The USO umpires are not ATP & WTA regulars, they are from another organisation. I assume USTA? I heard the commentators talking about it the other day.

Nikita is a close friend. He was apart of the Davis Cup team for Latvia many years back. Here is a little reminder

Oh my, that pic really takes me down the memory lane.. the good old days

On a less nostalgic note though, thank you all for the reports, updates and pics, of course. They really come in handy for those of us who really need to sleep while Ernie is playing... being on the other side of the world and all They're all much appreciated


Congrats to Ernie and keep going! #TeamGulbis all the way

Well last night was the first time I've managed to see a live Ernests match in a long time and I was so happy he won. Great fighting spirit ... he could easily have just given up being two sets down.

As I havent seen him play in a while his change of playing style was pretty noticable, especially the power he has on his forehand now ...although he did miss a few

Good luck to him for the next round.

Good to see you in here! I have been looking at old Ernests & team Latvia pictures a lot lately and I just HAD to post that one! Good old days indeed!
