Hello guys!! I'm still here :)
Today was a great day, but only for my victory against Yanina - not for the weather!!! I was supposed to play at 11 but the rain was terrible, so we played around 3 o'clock. I played well today. Yanina is a great player but I think I played the correct tactics: a lot of slice, good serving... I'm so happy, and my coach is also happy :-) Tomorrow I will play against Caroline. I've never played against her. I have nothing to lose - she is No.1 in the world. We will see!
Now I'm on my way to the hotel. I'll get a little massage with my physio, then dinner as always with Francesco, Sara (her nickname is Cichi) and her brother Davide. But first I see there are some questions from you guys already... thank you so much!! I'm very proud to answer them for you!
What are your goals and ambitions in tennis? Nicola, Italy
My goals and ambitions are to win one big tournament, like a Grand Slam (Wimbledon is the top of my list!) And also I want to keep improving my ranking. Now I'm No.22, I'd like to reach the Top 10...
Are you going to go to Little Italy in Toronto? John, Canada
I've never been to Little Italy here but if I have time this week I hope so ;-)
What is your favorite animal? Patricia, Germany
My favorite animal is the cat. My brother calls me 'gatto' in Italian, which means 'cat' in English :-)
Who was your tennis idol when you were a child? Ricardo, México
When I was young, my idol was Martina Navratilova, and Stefan Edberg too.
Do you still keep in touch with Sandrine Testud? Mark
Yes! Sometimes I send messages to Sandrine. She's in Italy now but does not play tennis. Sometimes golf in Rome though!
Thanks everyone - I'll wait for some more questions tomorrow and the next days... now time to eat, ciao ciao!
