14-Oct-2011 Autumn Has Come in Europe ;)
Here's another post for you, thinking, as always, to update you with some news!
I'm writing from Linz! It's my 1st time here... very interesting place and friendly atmosphere at the tournament!
Came here straight from Beijing, actually I just popped in Moscow for a day to change the clothes and take more warm stuff for autumn in Europe. The next day I had an early flight to Linz, Austria. So, got a bit of jet-lag, of course! But this is part of professional tennis, try to handle it!
I stopped working with my ex-coach Carlos in Tokyo, so had to go to Beijing without a coach, and had a pretty good tournament there, a repeat of my QFs in singles and doubles from 2009. Always good memories from there!
Here in Linz I'm with my brother. I asked him and my dad to help me for a while. My family's always been there for me through all my tennis career!
We had a players' party called ''Women in Red.'' Unfortunately, I didn't have anything in red, so went there all in black like a "Black Swan." :)
Playing doubles with Anabel Medina Garrigues... It's our 2nd time playing together (1st time in Beijing, made it to QFs), really enjoying it so far!
Next stop is Luxembourg. Looking forward to that one! I remember I won a U18 ITF event there a looong time ago, I think I was 13 years of age at the time. And of course on 5-6 November is the Fed Cup final at the "Olimpiyskiy"!!!!!!!! You can't imagine how excited I am! I hope you can find a few days in your schedule to come out and support us, scream out loud and give positive emotions! We need it!!!! But about this we will speak a little bit later!
Fingers crossed... My season is not over yet, still some more matches to play!
Love, hugs, smiles!
