Hello again everyone,

Well, of course I'm sad about my loss today. I was really fighting for every single ball and left 100% out on the court, but Maria was just better today. In the end of the third set she was moving really well and it was tough to hit a winner - and she was making no mistakes at all. So all the credit to her, she really deserved to win today. Now I have to think about what I did wrong and what I can do better next time.

Thank God there's another opportunity almost every week :-)

Now I just have to forget this match and practice what I need to. I hope it'll be better next time :)

I didn't have doubles today but we will be back tomorrow and I hope we can play a good one. Our opponents are scheduled late today so we don't know who it'll be, but for sure it'll be tough :-)

I watched Petra Kvitova play her first match today. She was serving really amazing. She is such a nice girl, I admire her as a tennis player and also her personality, because she is still the same Petra no matter if she won Wimbledon - she is still so nice to everybody, which I really admire about her.

We were all watching hockey yesterday - Plzen won 3-0, so Eva Hrdinova was happy! Her boyfriend is a hockey player from the Pilsen team :-)

I just finished my stretching and will go to our hotel now. Tonight is the player party in the hotel so for sure we will be there - it's going to be so much fun, as player parties always are!! :-)

I'll talk to you all again tomorrow and will be answering some of your great questions!

Have a good night,
