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.
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!

Hello everyone! I am very happy to have the chance to write to you here on the Tennis Warehouse website. I love Tennis Warehouse and it’s been great to work with them together this year so far. We decided it would be nice and fun to give some insights into what’s going on here at the last Grand Slam of the year in New York…last but not least!
Right now I am sitting on a couch in the player’s lounge waiting for my first round mixed doubles match. I’m excited to get the match started soon because the wait is getting long! I am playing with Marcin Matkowski here. He is a very good doubles player, ranked number 6, his best ranking so far. I have played with him once before in Australia…we hope to play even better this time. We are both doing better in doubles since that time! I speak a little Polish so I think we will have fun on court!
I prepared myself well for this tournament because it’s an important one so that’s why I spend a lot of time on site. It’s the last big one of the year and I have lots of special memories from here from the previous years. So that means not too much time for fun in NYC yet but last night we went to Rue 57, a French restaurant, for dinner with friends.
Looks like the match before me is nearly done so I am going to warm up. Wish me good luck! I will write more tomorrow hopefully with some good news and photos!
