Ana Konjuh blog: A chance to relax
After spending two months on the sidelines nursing an arm injury, world Junior No. 2 Ana Konjuh returned to action in May to compete on the ITF Pro Circuit and at the mid-summer junior Grand Slams. She reached back-to-back finals at $25,000 ITF Pro Circuit events in Maribor and Montpellier, winning her first pro circuit title at the latter, and the semifinals at both junior Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Here, the 15-year-old Croatian blogs about her eventful summer and taking a well-earned break.
Iím on holiday at home in Dubrovnik this week and itís been really nice to have a rest and be with my family for a little bit. Iíve played a lot of tennis in the last couple of months so a break is really important, and Iím really happy to be with my family because I donít really get a chance to see them too much.
Iím doing some fitness while Iím on holiday but thereís no tennis at all for four days. The fitness isnít anything too serious, just enough to keep me in shape. My coach, Kristian Schneider, sends me an email with the things I have to do Ė just general fitness and stretches, some running and stuff like that. I probably spend about an hour and a half on a session, and do that two times over four or five days while Iím on holiday.
