Forehand winners were the key to my game

I have many reasons to be pleased with my performance today. I succeeded in applying the experience from the last match against Amelie and to dominate the game with strong shots. Forehand winners were the key to my game today but I am also happy with the way I returned Amelie’s trade mark slice shots. Furthermore, today I served much better although I know I have to improve my first serve percentage. However, the most important thing is that I managed to keep my focus and finish the match in two sets. Under these weather conditions this is of vital importance.

On a bad side, due to “blistering” hot surface temperature, towards the end I got blisters on both feet which is kind of a usual way of starting my Australian open season. But I am sure that local physios will get me 100% ready for the next match.

Huge thanks to all supporters on the ground who cheered me wholeheartedly and to all those people who leave messages on my website. Be assured I read them all.

See you soon!
