Hello again, everybody!
Today it is very cloudy and a lot cooler than yesterday. It is crazy how the temperature drops here in Melbourne. Because the forecast for today was rain many of the players went indoors this morning. So did I with the players I work with here.
From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. I had a session with Caroline Wozniacki. Her father is her full time coach traveling with her 52 weeks a year. After having warmed up properly, we did some work on the serve and return. Most of the players who are still in the tournament don’t work too much on their game on their days off. They usually play points with each other. But some of them do work on their game by practicing “Serve and First Shot.” The player serves, and either the coach feeds them a ball from the other side of the court or tosses a ball into the player’s side of the court.
Next to us at 9 a.m. Agnieszka Radwanska was warming up for her match on Hisense Arena. She was actually hitting with her sister, Ursula. There could be a couple of reasons why she did not warm up on Hisense Arena. Maybe because that specific time slot age wanted had been taken already and she did not want to share the court. Or simply because she wanted to be by herself indoors where no press had access to.
