Hi everybody, it's me again from Bali!
I had a great day today. We all dressed up in traditional dresses from a local designer. They were very special - it's not too often we get a chance to wear something like that. After that we had the draw ceremony, where we all walked in one after the other. I was third. I was a little late coming out, and I think people may have been wondering why there was such a big gap! Just before entering the room we discovered a needle hanging in the back of my dress... it took us a moment to get rid of it but it was all good in the end. I really enjoyed all of it.
I'm playing Daniela first. We've practiced a lot together during the year and our matches were always good. So I'm definitely looking forward to a great first round.
I also had two practices today, with Ana Ivanovic this morning and with Peng Shuai in the afternoon. Ana and I always have a lot of fun on the court, which is important, especially at the end of the year!
My parents and I went out and had a nice dinner. It was so nice and relaxing. We're enjoying our time here a lot :)
Until tomorrow, and I hope you are all enjoying my blog :)
