Hello from Sydney again everyone :)

Well, unfortunately I didn't win my match today. First of all, Jelena played a really great match. She made very few unforced errors and played a great game, so congratulations to her. Secondly, I didn't start the match too well - I was pushing the ball a little bit. In the second set I loosened up and really started playing my game, not thinking too much and finding the shots I've been using in practice the last couple of days, but I was still a bit unlucky in the important moments. Things are coming, though!

I wanted to go to the city yesterday but didn't make it. We did have the player party last night though, I met a few of the players from the ATP - Christopher Kas, and Ryan Harrison too - they're very nice. I have a day off tomorrow now so maybe I'll go to the beach or the harbor, maybe some sightseeing - I'm really looking forward to it. I love Sydney. Everything from the hotel to the tournament is just great.

I'll be leaving for Melbourne on Wednesday or Thursday. Right now it's just a matter of putting the things I'm doing in practice into my matches. I want to keep working on my serve and staying aggressive - I felt like everything was good today, and all of my shots were there, but I need to be more aggressive!

Talk to you all again soon :)
