Time for some news to share, guys
"Pains were present even after the US Open, but I said to myself that this should not impede me, it really would not be good if i'd 'sit on the bench' the whole year. After bad first half of the year, I can even be satisfied with the ending, because i saw that i can play well with pain. I've come pretty far on two tournaments, practicaly without practice and completely without condition, and that is why i don't look blackminded to the next season."
One of the most important novelty is undoubtedly working with the new professionals.
Two new coaches : Jens Gerlach from Germany (from 2002 - 2006 coach of Myskina), Beni Lindl will be taking care of condition preparness (already worked with Federer and Warwinka).
New doubles partner will be Kveta Peschke.
"I think that my leaveing to Switzerland on the Swiss Tennis Academy is the right move. After some time it is good to switch someplace else, there will be many other players that somehow pull you with them. Even before the tournament in the US I have seen, how they train there, I can say that everything is subordinate to tennis and that working conditions are excellent. Otherwise i won't train there with Kveta, because my priorites still remains singles, and with the talent that i have we'll play on tournaments without any major problems, so there won't be any special preparness for my doubles."
"I choosed 'premier' tournaments, where I will try to do as much as possible in order to possibly going back to my old ranking. After Roland Garros I will see how to proceed. I've got 4 tournaments on hard court and 4 on sand in my plans, otherwise it's draging me on bigger tournaments. The problem is that i won't be seeded but I look on this on the bright side. If i had so many bad luck with the injuries this year, then i must have some good luck at the draw in the next season."
Katarina also added that this year she rather not choosed shoulder surgery, because there were too many different opinions, aswell as no one dared to make sure that surgery pain would go away.
And last the least - she choosed 8 tournaments which she will play on with the froozen ranking. Firstly she'll play Fed cup, then indoors in Paris, followed by Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami. She may change her mind about the last two and change them with Bogota and Acapulco, most definetly the peak will be Roland Garros which will be the only Grand Slam for Katarina.
All best wishes everything goes more then well! Good luck!
