Hello again everyone :)
My singles was disappointing today. I really wanted to do well here because this is where I won my first title last year, but nothing came how I wanted. I think I forgot that yesterday I said I just wanted to have fun. I wasn't happy with how I played, and I was almost crying at one point. It wasn't a good feeling. For two hours after the match, I was destroyed. All of my family and friends were watching and cheering for me. The way I look at it though, it's a loss. Nothing else. There are many other important things in life.
I was pumped for the doubles - actually Tathy helped pump me up before and during the match. We laughed a lot on the court. It was really close, and during the match Tathy looked at me and said, 'Please, I beg you, just hit the ball as hard as you can!' It was funny and it helped. From 7-all in the tie-break we won three points and won the match. I'm really happy to still be in the Luxembourg draw, even if it's just in doubles! We have our next match tomorrow.
Have a good night and talk to you tomorrow!
What are your plans for the off-season? Shelley, Australia
I want to see my friends as much as I can. My best friend, Valérie, is always studying so much and even when I'm at home we don't see enough of each other... I also want to visit one of my friends in Rome. I just want to enjoy every single second of my off-season. We travel around the world so much. I want to be who I am in the off-season: just a regular person!
We already asked about Swiss tennis players yesterday, but what about Swiss chocolate - are you a fan? Nancy, UK
Of course! It's the most famous chocolate in the world! I love it. Switzerland is famous for a lot of things actually... mountains, cheese, banks, languages, fun people! I made a comment last week when Tathy and I won the doubles title in Torhout, Belgium, that Swiss chocolate beat Belgian chocolate that time :) Anyway, I'm really proud to be Swiss and I love the chocolate. Thank you!
