Hello again everyone! Tonight I'm writing to you from the player party here in Bad Gastein, and like I told you yesterday it's a '70s theme... and it's really nice! I wasn't born in the '70s, so I don't have a lot of experience with this style, but we're all dressed up and looking really good. We're having a lot of fun and the food is really good, and I hope we're going to keep enjoying the evening here!

By now you've obviously seen the picture of me... but to describe a little bit more what I'm wearing, I have some styles that were important in the '70s, like pants with flowers on them, the peace sign, and of course the glasses, and probably the most important thing of all - the fantastic headband!

There are casino games here too. I haven't played any of them yet but I'm going to try my luck with them for sure. Who knows, if I do well with them, maybe it'll bring me some luck for tomorrow too. I have never been to a casino before - I just turned 19, so I'm not allowed to go to them yet!!

Apart from this it was a good day. I practiced for an hour, went to the cool pool again, swam around a bit, watched some of the matches... so overall a pretty relaxing day for me in Bad Gastein :)

My second round match tomorrow is against Mandy Minella. We've never played each other before. I'm playing first at 11, so I'm going to go to bed soon and hopefully sleep well. I'll just try to have a good recovery and a good morning, and a good warm-up, and I'll do my best on the court tomorrow.

I'll talk to you all afterwards... have a good night :)

What is your favorite city in the world and why? Teho, Japan
Well, I love Rome, but I've never been there! I love Paris too though. I won the juniors there last year at the French Open, so I have good memories from that, but also afterwards I went on a boat trip on the Seine and saw a lot of the city. I love the Eiffel Tower. So maybe it should be Paris...
