Well, it was a tough one today. I have to say I had some lower back problems today. When I warmed up this morning I felt something. I wasn't sure if I would be able to play or not. I tried, but you see the result. I couldn't do that much out there - I couldn't serve, couldn't return, and couldn't run to the ball. So it was definitely not my best day. I hope I can recover soon and come back stronger...

Yesterday I told you I would be Skyping back home last night and I did! It was quite a lot of fun to see them and chat about things other than tennis. I'm going home tonight and will see them all soon.

I also mentioned I have a dog, so I'll tell you more about him! He's a chihuahua, so he's a pretty small dog. He's nine years old and his name is Patch. He's very nice. He runs around the house all the time and loves other dogs, so whenever I take him for a walk I have to wait for him at every corner and street! I miss him very much whenever I travel to tournaments and I'm very excited to see him again. I don't bring him to tournaments myself but next time my parents come I hope they bring him.

I do have enough to keep me busy when I'm at tournaments, though. Most of the time I'm reading books or listening to music. I also like talking on the phone :) Anyway, I read a lot of books, but I don't have a favorite writer. As for music, I'm interested in pop music and all the stuff from the last 10 or 15 years. I like Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and all the pop stars we have out there at the moment.

So, I had a great week. It's too bad the ending wasn't that happy, but I made another quarterfinal, and I really enjoyed this place, it was very nice. I'll come back stronger and see you all soon!

And thank you all again for reading and sending in your questions. I really appreciate it :)
