Well unfortunately I won't be able to continue at the Generali Ladies Linz this week because I injured my knee in my match today. I'm really disappointed - it sucks that the season had to end this way for me. I guess it's just my body's way of telling me that's enough and I've played too much. It could have been worse though. I'm able to walk and it doesn't seem to be too long-term. And at least now I can look forward to some time off and some well-deserved rest, and get ready for 2008.
We're going to try to fly out to Paris in the morning. I've got some things I'd like to do out there, then I'll head back to Miami after that. I'm really looking forward to going back home - I haven't been back there since the US Open. I'll probably take a vacation to the Caribbean, see some friends... just try to enjoy myself!
I've gotten some really nice comments about the blog this week. Hopefully all of you enjoyed it. I try to do as much as I can to give back to the fans, and the blog is a great way to let people know who we are. We don't just think about tennis 24/7 - and this is a great way of showing that. And I'm so thankful for all of the support from all of you; I've had some tough times this year, and to have people out there caring and supporting you helps keep you positive in those times.
So another season ends... you know, despite what happened today I'm so happy with my season. I was injured in the middle of the year but I played some good tennis at the beginning and then came back strong at the end. So now I can take some time off to get myself fresh for Australia. I'll spend some time in Europe and am probably going to the mountains in November, so I have a few things planned... I'll share that with you next year as I look forward to blogging again!
Oh and I've attached a picture of me trying on the snow shoes I won on Tuesday night at the player party...
Take care, thanks for all your support and talk to you soon
