After America I rested a couple of days and enjoyed being back at home. I’ve been away for a long time, but time just flew by. I learned a lot out of all the matches and experiences. It was special to play in New York after last year, all the memories came back. That match against Schnyder is one I’ll never forgot. I’m working hard every day for moments like this.
Tomorrow morning I’m leaving for Tokio. I am looking forward to it.
The tournament in Torhout starts in 3 weeks and I’m looking very much forward to it. My first match is on Wednesday October 13th so come and watch.
Cross all your fingers for Japan and China and I’ll see you all soon.

Today is my last day in Cincy before I leave for Montreal. I played 3 tournaments here now and time really passes by very fast. I’ve got some matches under my belt now and I feel better and better every time.
Talk to you soon..
I’m at Brussels South airport waiting for my flight to Chicago.
Thanks to Connections, I’m taken care of perfectly, so I have some time to tell you what the last few weeks have been like for me.
Following Wimbledon, I have taken a week off and that has done me a power of good. I rested my arm and have mentally prepared for a period I’m anxiously looking forward to!
I am very relaxed, have had two weeks of practice, and I worked very hard to be prepared the best way possible.
I am leaving for quite some time, but I’m really happy about it. So, I’ll do my very best to keep you posted on how my tournaments there roll on…
Lots of love,
Talk to you soon!
First of all, I want to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May 2010 bring so much more than 2009, may all your wishes and dreams come true, and, most of all, I wish you good health.
I don’t want to go into details on the hard times I’ve been through, but I want to thank all of you for all the support, for being with me and continuing to believe in me.
I’ll be heading for Australia tomorrow – will be in touch.
All the best
I finally took some time to tell you about my time in the States. It’s been so long that I hardly know where to start.
Before leaving, I had decided already to drop one tournament and practice one more week, so I started in Los Angeles to go, via Cincinnati, Toronto and New Haven, to the US Open – a tournament I was really looking forward to.
My feeling was very positive the first weeks. I was very pleased with my level, and the match rhytm was a very good preparation. Looking back, those qualification matches have really made me stronger; it wasn’t that easy mentally, but I learned a lot and it gave me confidence. Those few matches against top 10 players were a great experience to me; never before I had been able to play so many top matches and I learned so much, even though I lost them. Between the tournaments, I always had some time off, which was very good in view of my US Open preparation.
I had met almost all the goals I’d set for this season already, but I was really hungry to have a good grand slam appearance. I wanted to …
