Hey everyone and hello to days 9 and 10!

Rain, rain, rain and one more time rain…this has been my worst day at the US Open this year. It was raining really badly and we had to go on and off the court. This interrupts everybody’s rhythm. You don’t know when to eat or when to warm up. Everything is kind of hanging in the air.

Unfortunately, Julia and I lost our doubles quarterfinal match yesterday. Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani were the better and more consistent team! However, Julia and I had a wonderful time together. It was fun to work with her and her team here in NY. Thanks a lot to them!

In the evening we went to a wonderful Italian restaurant near our hotel on 54th Avenue West. My manager, Lyn, told us about it so we of course had to go! There we had not only a fabulous dinner but also the best service ever here in NY. Such a great place to go!!!

Day 10 was a good day…you see this life is almost like a roller-coaster of emotions :) We won our semifinal mixed match against Max Mirnyi and Liezel Huber. We played very well and I again have to thank my partner Marcin Matkowski for hanging in so tight. I have seen guys who lose early in doubles either pulling out of mixed or not trying 100 percent. Marcin is not like that; he is committed 100 percent! Thank you!

So tomorrow we have our final day after two long weeks here in NY. I really hope I can show you a photo with the trophy after the match…no pressure! ;)

But now it is time again to go to bed and to be ready for the final tomorrow!

Good night to you all…

Hugs,

Kveta

Continued success at US Open for Kveta Peschke

Kveta explores the city on her day off.

Hello everyone!

I had a nice day off today so had a little bit of fun in the city in the morning then an easy practice and massage on site after. Here is a fun photo from my day in the Big Apple and Central Park…no shopping bags though! ; )

Tomorrow I have two matches so after a good dinner I am planning to have an early night to prepare well!

I will send you more updates tomorrow : )

Day 8

Hey! Here I am again and so happy about this day. All I could have wished for today came true. This is one of those days which should never end! :)

After having a really difficult season so far these wins are very important to me and keep me going. I am very thankful that my partner Julia Goerges played such a fantastic match today! It made things much easier! We were playing King/Shvedova, one of the best teams in the world, and were able to

win 6:4 6:2. The first set was really close and could have gone either way but we were a bit luckier in the important moment. In the second set we were rolling and Julia made some unbelievable points so we got an early lead and kept going till the end.

Mixed worked out well too! I lost the last two mixed matches against Sania Mirza and today I was able to finally win one again. We always have good matches against each other and she is a great player and a strong fighter but today it was my turn! :)

I just found out that I am playing tomorrow both doubles and mixed so I have to get something to eat now which is luckily not really difficult in New York.

Please keep your fingers crossed for my next matches, and of course I will let you know how things worked out.

So all the best to you and I get back to you tomorrow…Kveta

Hello from NY!

I just got back from the courts after a successful day. My partner is Julia Goerges and we played well today. We beat Date Krumm/Wozniak 6-1 6-3, so it’s very promising for tomorrow! We play 2nd round at 11am against Voracova/Zakopalova.

Kveta gets her day started the right way, with some coffee!

Today I started the day with a coffee as usual for a good mood and then I always say “nothing can go wrong!” : )

By the way, our first win in mixed doubles yesterday with Marcin was lots of fun and great experience I can use in my doubles as well. We will probably play the 2nd round on Saturday.

Now I’m finally back relaxing in the hotel room with a healthy Caesar chicken salad for dinner. I have to be in the car at 7:45 a.m. and hit the road to the site again, so I have to keep it a bit shorter today!! Hope you like the photos! : )

Have a good night!
