Hello again everyone,
Our doubles was very good today. We played solid and we were there in the important moments. In the second set we had one not-so-good game, but we came back and broke them at the end to finish it in two sets. We're getting better and better as the tournament goes on, which is good to see. We're going to have a tough final tomorrow though, as Petra and Anna are very good players and a good team. We'll enjoy it; the better team will win!
Jill and I are a little tired tonight and don't want to go anywhere, so we will just stay at the hotel, have dinner and then watch soccer, probably!
We do hang out most of the time after matches as we are a team and friends too. We enjoy our time together. We don't do anything specific every time.
Now I'll go for dinner... we'll chat tomorrow one last time ;-)
If you weren't a tennis player, what would you be? Mark
Honestly, I don't know what I would do then! When I think about it a little longer, I do like to do things that have to do with computers and taxes and stuff, so maybe to work in the background of a hotel or at reception? ;-)
What is your favorite German food? Max, France
My favorite German food is CROQUE, which is a toasted baguette with some homemade remoulade and other things like ham, tomatoes, cheese, etc.
How do you like your new Babolat racquet? Was it tough to adjust? Adrin, USA
I do like my Babolat racquet a lot. I feel I have more power and speed in my strokes and it also brings more spin. I just took it into my hand and loved it - it didn't take me long to adjust to it at all!
How will you celebrate if you and Jill win the tournament? And if Germany wins Euro 2012? Doug, USA
We would be pretty happy if we win our first title together here. It's always special to have a title with your best friend, so I hope we're going to make it tomorrow ;-) We can't celebrate long though, as Jill has to go to Wimbledon qualies and we will be driving back to Germany - I hope we make it before Germany's soccer game ;-)
