Hello there :)

This is my first blog for the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour so I hope you all enjoy it.

Luckily the travel from Rome was just fine - I had a good flight. No problems!

I just came from my first match against Maria Kirilenko. I was playing very well. Everything was working. It was tough at the start - the first four games took 25 minutes! But I'm happy to win in straight sets. I was told I only lost 12 points on serve... and I don't normally know the stats from my matches, but that's good to hear. It was very windy, and it was changing - you'd have the wind behind you on one side, and sometimes it would follow you to the other side too.

It's not great when you have to play your doubles partner, but it happens in tennis. When you're on the court you have to look at them as your opponent. Maria wrote me a cute message afterwards, 'Today was your turn to win and well done', so we're fine! Now we will do our best together in the doubles :)

I haven't really had time to see the city yet. I really wanted to see the Real Madrid game but I was playing the first match today so I couldn't go. It was very disappointing! I haven't seen a live soccer game yet... Maybe next time :(

So, I've been watching Prison Break in my room! That's the show I'm into right now. I love the series. I'm on the last season now. There's just a lot going on in the show - even if the episode is finishing, I want to watch one more. It's hard to stop! Then I look at my watch and it's always so late already...

As you may know, my sister, Urszula, has had some problems with injury. She was in Rome with me and she'll be in Paris too, but not here. She had surgery a few months ago and now she's having some treatment in Krakow. She'll have an MRI soon. It's tough for me of course, I'm not used to being alone for weeks and I feel better when she's with me, but we talk and text every day so it's okay.

Have a nice day, we'll talk again tomorrow!
