Hello again everyone :) So today was a very good match with Sorana Cirstea. I was a bit nervous in the match because I saw she was playing really well. I just tried to fight a lot to stay there and it wasn't easy, but in the end it was good for me, because I was able to win 6-4 in the third set. There wasn't much of a difference between us though - I saw the statistics and I actually won three less points than her! So I really won for nothing, just a few points at the right times... but I'm happy to win anyway.

They just told me it was my 27th win of the year, more than anyone, which is great, of course I like that statistic! I'm very happy to be first on that list. I'm really just trying my best out there...

It was a tough night last night for Robi, who lost her match - tennis is very important for both of us, so when one of us loses, we just give the other one the space they need. I know what it feels like and we all need our space for a while - of course we can't win every match, but it's still tough!

Today I warmed up with my coach at about 11, then took a shower, had lunch and waited for my match. We made a mistake, though - we thought it was the second match after 1, but when we went there for the match, at about 2:15, the WTA Supervisor said it was scheduled for not before 3 - I was ready to go, but we had to wait another 40 minutes or so! Sorana made the same mistake too! It was because one of the schedules had 'not before 3' and one didn't... it was okay, we didn't mind waiting.

I also want to mention my coach's son - he is here this week and he's so beautiful, a very sweet baby! I have a lot of fun with him. His name is Pau and he's a year and a half old - he'll be two years old in July. I'm actually his godmother - my coach gave me that gift and I'm very proud and thankful.

Have a good night and I will answer your questions tomorrow... please keep sending them in!
