I'd like to thank everyone who sent me a birthday message last week. I had a very nice time: a quiet dinner with friends!

It was my brother's 18th birthday last month – now THAT was a celebration! There were over a hundred people and most of them danced all night.

I've already started training again, to be ready for the new season. At the moment it's just fitness, but tennis will start next week, with Sven.

There's not much else to say at the moment. Always when I begin my off-season training the focus is on fitness, then I gradually move onto tennis, and by the end of the training block tennis is of course the main focus.

I had a good break. It was just what I needed!
