As I just wrote over at the Forty Deuce Facebook Fan Page (see what I did there?) I'm really happy to see Ernie play well. He has, for so long, been the guy that other players pointed to as having Top 10 or Top 5 talent if he could just pull it together. He has this week and it's been awesome to watch.
But I miss the old Ernie. The Ernie that was best buds with Nole and used to act as a kid. I miss the dorkily shorn Richie Rich who would laugh at his own idiocy on court, hit some RETARDED impossible shots, and then follow it up with just plain retarded shots for the next 40 minutes. I miss the Ernie who would give good quote. Granted, this might give you some insight into why I love watching the WTA so much.
But I hope Ernie can find a balance. Because honestly? It's not really all that fun watching you play joyless high-quality tennis. If I wanted that I'd go watch Fed or something.
