Hello again everybody!
So today I didn't have a match again, and it was pretty much the same as yesterday - I just had a practice with my coach again, some physical training, I went to sleep in the hotel in the afternoon - a siesta! And that's about it. Tonight I'll just have some dinner and rest more for tomorrow.
It's very strange for me to have two days in a row off, especially without doubles - two days is really a lot. I thought I would play today but my opponents didn't play yesterday, they also played today, and Goerges had to withdraw, so my next match is going to be tomorrow against Lepchenko.
That's about it, really... but that also gives me some more time for your questions!
Have a good night :)
If you could play against someone from men's tennis who would it be and why? Marcus
I would like to play with Nadal, because he's the one I like the most. But just for some shots - not for full points, that would just be impossible. I cannot win one point against him!
If there was no tennis, what job do you think you would do? Anne
I like sports very much, so for sure I would play another sport. When I was younger I played three years of basketball. I'm not so tall, so that's not a good thing for me, but I like basketball so much.
How do you prepare mentally before each match? Nicola
Nothing special - I just speak with my coach, we try to see what to do tactically, then we prepare on the court while we're warming up and he tells me some things to do. So nothing special really. He is usually the one who goes and watches my opponents - I don't really like doing that so much.
What is your favorite Grand Slam? Ljubisha, Serbia
I think Australia. It's very nice - the place, the people, and I like the hot weather very much!
Do you prefer playing your matches early in the day or at night? Cristina, Valencia
Early. Maybe not the first match of the day, because you have to wake up really early, but for sure in the middle of the day is my favorite time to play. I don't like to play late in the day very much.
Have you ever been to Greece and what did you like there? Panagiotis, Greece
I've never been there actually - but for sure I want to go! Maybe for a holiday sometime.
