Hello!

I just came from winning my match against Lepchenko. I'm very happy to have won this match - it is never easy against her, she's a very hard player for me to play against. Not only is she lefty, but she has a lot of power, and I also have a difficult time reading her shots. Her ball is very heavy and you can't really read where she's going to hit the ball until the end. But I'm happy I did it today.

Other than that, today I just woke up, ate and warmed up as usual, then went back to the hotel to rest a bit, then came back at 5:30 to eat again and warm up for the match, which was a night match.

And tonight I'm just going to do nothing! Just eat something now then go to bed!

But first... some more of your questions. Keep them coming, and I will talk to you again tomorrow!

What do you think about between points during your matches? Toni
Just 'Come on, come on!' I'm just trying to concentrate and think of what I have to do during the points and the match. Just trying to stay as focused as possible on what I'm doing out there.

What is the biggest difference between you as a player now and three years ago? Tom, USA
A big difference is the racquet - the racquet I started using last year gave me a lot of confidence. I played much better, felt much better and won more matches. It was just getting better and better.

What is your favorite food from home in Italy? Markis, England
I like pasta very much. My mother cooks very well. Passatelli and tortellini I think are the best!

Besides Robi, who are your best friends on the tour? Brett, Qatar
Yes, for sure the best friend is Vinci, and then we're also very close with the other Italian girls like Francesca and Pennetta - but also with the Spanish girls we have a good relationship too.

Are you enjoying writing this blog? Ivana, Italy
Yes! It's fun to do this, and it's really fun to reply to the questions from all of you!
