It felt great playing in Belgrade

Hello Everybody
I am going back to work after spending three exciting weeks at home. First, it was my birthday. I spent it with my family and my friends and I enjoyed it very much. I went out a lot as well, Belgrade is famous for having lots of places to go out and have good time.

There was lots of excitement about the Charity match for rebuilding the Avala TV tower near Belgrade. I enjoyed the match against Novak. Being on the tour for the last few years I kind of forgot how great is playing in the city of my birth.

The reception we got from the kids while visiting the schools around Belgrade was amazing. Later on during the match I think we played better and entertained more wishing somehow to make it fun for them and return some of the joy we felt by being in front of them.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone again for all the presents and cards I received during the event.

At the moment I am in Lausanne working out at full steam with Pierre. This is the hardest bit of being a professional tennis player, when, after a holiday I have to start with heavy training. However, it gets easier when I think how good it feels winning a match.

All the best
Ana
