Hi everyone - just so you know, I've recovered from the movie :)
Maria and I played our doubles quarterfinal against the Williams sisters today. They were playing really well. In the first set we were 2-0 up. The next few games went to deuce and they won them all, so we could have been up like 5-2. In the second set we came back from 2-5 to 4-5 but just couldn't do it in the end, and they won, 62 64. They were too good. I have big respect for them, they are both great champions and have so many titles. We were having fun and we had nothing to lose, and I think we played a good match anyway.
I don't play too much doubles. We've played some recent tournaments and Maria and I will play the French Open and Wimbledon, too. We enjoy playing together. We're both singles players and doubles is good practice for us. No pressure. If we lose, it's okay - and we have only been losing to the best teams, so I think we're playing well. We understand each other. We're a good team :)
I went to Madrid yesterday. I went to one of the main streets - Serrano. There's great shopping and restaurants. I had Spanish food for dinner (of course!)
I also finished Prison Break last night, but I'm disappointed! I thought it would end differently. I was almost crying. My favorite character died... I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it so I won't say too much... I'm going to start watching 24 now. I've seen the first five seasons, so I'm going to get the sixth. It's so good! I like action. I hate boring stuff. Something has to be happening!!
I'm leaving tomorrow and I'm going home for a few days. It has been four weeks on the road for me since Fed Cup... I'll probably go to Paris on Wednesday.
I have an exam on Tuesday. I'm studying tourism with my sister at a school in Krakow. I finished high school two years ago and I waited for my sister to finish so we could do this together :) I'm a year older but now we're doing the same classes. I have an exam Tuesday for the first half of the year, hopefully I can pass. We study together sometimes. It's always very funny when we do. We'll be in the living room on the couch with our books, notes... then we'll just fall asleep for half an hour. One time time we woke up after a few hours and it was already dark!! We decided that if one of us falls asleep, the other one has to wake them up. I really enjoy it though and we're having fun doing it :)
School is important. I think everyone should do high school, but it's hard to do university at the same time as tennis. If I can do it I want to do it, though. Even if the other people in the class are ahead of me because I'm travelling, I can catch up. Whenever I go home I do as much as possible.
Well I'm going to answer a few more questions and then I guess that's it for this week's blog. Thank you very much for reading and I'll do it again soon!!
How are Flippy and Floppy doing? Michael
Actually, I gave them to someone else to look after a few years ago. I hope they're doing well. I haven't had enough time to keep pets :(
How do you feel about the French Open? Julia, Germany
I'm excited, of course. It's one of the most important tournaments of the year. I'll have to be prepared for how busy it is - the traffic, all the people... especially in the beginning of the two weeks. And I really like the city!
