Hello everyone :)
As soon as we landed here, my mom and I were so wonderfully surprised with how beautiful it is. It's one of the prettiest cities I've ever been to. The little streets have cute restaurants, the food is amazing and there's creperies at every corner - that already makes it one of my favorite places! The people are so nice and the atmosphere of the city is very warm. I can imagine when it's winter with Christmas and snow, it must be so magically pretty. I'm so glad I came here.
It feels like home in Monte Carlo, although there's no sea... Hearing all the French is great. I'm enjoying going into the city and just not doing anything but getting a coffee and enjoying the atmosphere. I wish I could speak more French - I haven't picked it up too much yet... it's in my plans for the near future.
I just came here from New York. Agnieszka and I had a great run in doubles, making the semifinals. Obviously Lisa and Liezel were playing unbelievable, they really deserved to win the tournament. We play doubles to have fun, and when the good results come it's a nice plus. We don't put any pressure on each other. It's really nice to play with her. And since we went far in the tournament we were in New York City longer, and we did quite a bit of shopping ;)
It was an unbelievable men's final today. It's hard to find words to describe it. I like Nadal and Djokovic a lot. In a match like that they should both be winners, but what Novak has done this year, all of us players would like to be there.
We just came back from a nice dinner and I've been getting ready for my match tomorrow, but now I'm going to get ready to sleep!
I'll talk to you tomorrow night...
