Hello again everyone :)

I left off yesterday after my first match. So after that I went to the shopping center here to do some shopping - we looked at some dresses because they have so many beautiful ones here. It was a nice trip! We had the tournament's player dinner last night too. The restaurant was so beautiful and close to the beach, and we were all together, and the food was also good - so it was a really great time.

I just came from my second round match. I was playing Chanelle Scheepers, and I think at the beginning of the match we were both very nervous - and it's easy to play badly when you're nervous! But as the match went on I started to play better. I didn't give her a lot of chances and won, 62 61.

I started feeling rain in the last two games and I was like, 'Oh my God, please win this fast!' Because otherwise I would have had to come back tomorrow to finish it and it would be like another match.

So I'm glad I finished :)

I haven't really done too much else today. This was a night match, so during the day I just went for coffee with my coach and talked about the match, watched some movies... and got a bit nervous about the match! I also practiced for an hour and a half before my match, so that's it really. Nothing much!

Now I'm going take a shower, see the physio to check on my ankle, then go to the hotel, dress up and maybe go to the shopping center again to get something to eat, and then go to sleep...

I'll talk to you all again tomorrow from my day off!

And don't forget to send in your questions :)
