Kim's Diary at the San Diego Resort: "I feel fine...."

I feel fine in the San Diego Resort

Since Sunday night I am in San Diego. I wanted to come here as soon as possible to be able to practice a little while, but it wasn’t easy to catch a flight at a descent hour from Stanford. The last few days I have been practicing lightly, and meanwhile I just finished my first match.

I have no reason to complain about the match against Stosur: everything went fine. But with Jankovic, somebody is awaiting me against whom I needed three sets last week. The players field is strong, anyway, with also Hingis, Sharapova and Pierce who returned...

Playing all these matches in a row makes me grasping painkillers for my back again. But next week I will be able to take a rest (this year I won’t play in L.A.), before I have to play in Montreal. After Montreal too, I will have a week rest, to be fresh for the US Open.

Also, last week I had an unexpected doping control. During tournaments we get controls several times, and also during resting periods they can visit us unexpectedly at any time. Although I have to say it’s a bit strange, all of a sudden being hold by two people, when walking on the street, and been taken with them. But I think it’s for a good cause and I can only support they try to discourage doping as much as possible.

Brian will stay with me for a while, but has to leave for home a few days before the US Open, when Bree [the basketball team where Brian is playing, in Belgium] will start its training. Meanwhile, he is examining the golf course out here. That’s the nice thing about this tournament: we stay at a resort, where the playgrounds are, but also a golf course and yet some other relaxing facilities. And all the players stay out here.

Only, I miss my dogs. But then I call home and ask them on the phone. I also heard a lot of mail has come in again. I will certainly reply, but please be patient for a while, that’s something to be done after the American tour.

Regards,
Kim

Is the WTAtour making the players talk about doping control as much as possible? It's too much of a coincidence that players are randomly talking about it in their diaries, interviews etc.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Maybe just the fact that doping is headline news lately, makes players talk about their doping control-experiences. And also because Martina complained about hers, it might have a snow ball effect, I guess.

Uh, huh, bitch. Until the people taking you away aren't the doping police. Then we'll see what you think about that "good cause." Uh, huh.

So they forced her again to play Montreal? It really sounds like this...

In a way, yes. When you win a tournament for the first time, you are obliged to defend your title the next year. Otherwise, you get a penalty.
Justine has had to pay a lot of penalties for instance, I read in an article, because she couldn't play due to her illness. Later on, in 2005, it was too 'abstract' to prove she still needed her resting periods for her body, so she preferred to pay the penalties, and choose for her body.
