July 23, 2009 Ė Anna Diary Entry
Hey Everyone! I know itís been February since I wrote my last entry. Anyway It has been really tough year for me so far, But here I am still fighting my way up again. I try to stay POSITIVE despite of my results. And Iím also truly aware how some of my fans and supporters stuck with me in times of my mix results, Thank You so MUCH FOR EVERYTHING. Youíre the reason why Iím still playing and trying to be the Best that I can be. Iím hoping to turn my season around , just one tournament at a time and definitely one match at a time. Anyway there has been a lot of changes since March. I have a coach now from Spain , He travels with me now, Hoping and Praying that heíll guide me to the right path, his been wonderful so far.
After Wimbledon I went straight to Sochi for few days. I just want to get away from tennis and try to be myself for a while. Be normal, act normal and just surround myself with positive people. After that well needed rest in Sochi went back to Moscow. When I got here I felt sick for a while, nothing serious. I felt much better last week . And I donít know if I mentioned this before but my father build a miniature soccer field in our backyard few years ago, He decided to take it off and build a tennis court. He suggested itís much better to practice here at home and be closer to them, which I totally agree. My coach has been kind enough to fly here and practice here. So far itís been good. Taking it easy , feeling my shots and my game.
I know itís only going to be a matter of time and tournament when my game will start to click again. I donít really want to expect to much from myself. I really want to play and be the best that I can be without putting too much pressure on myself. Well I guess thatís really it for now. And by the way Iíll be starting my US OPEN SERIES tournament in Stanford, then Cincinnati, Toronto, MAYBE New Haven, it all depends how I fair in the first three tournaments
and the US OPEN. So again Thank You for your continued support. May God bless each and everyone of you. Special thanks to my Family by the way for there undying Love and support, my friends whoís always been there for me and to my sponsors whoís been really patient enough to be there for me. I hope to bring you more positive news in the future. Till my next entry.
WITH LOVE AND APPRECIATION,
