Re: FWTT's Weekly player blog
Nthamangela Mbangu Zeric's Monday BlogHey guys, it's me. First official blogger of FWTT... makes me kind of proud, although I was the one who had the idea of starting it up.
I arrived here in Linz on Friday and I was given the honour of assisting in the draw ceremony, picking the seeded players, while Austrian junior twins Nicole and Astrid Haas picked the rest of players.
I really feel at home here and so welcome. Currently, this is by quite far my favorite tournament in the world.
I will be having my third appearance here at the Generali Ladies Open, losing round one to Mésane two years ago and losing in the quarters to Hernich last year.
This year I am seeded as number two and I will be facing a qualifier in round one, that is never easy because you don't know what to expect or even whom.
Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to playing my opening round.
In addition, I am also playing doubles despite the fact that Pammy is in Osaka. I am teaming up with Yanet, my first friend AND first doubles partner on the tour. We haven't played together since Budapest 2009. Maybe you remember our incredible run to the Wimbledon quarters that year, that was absolutely amazing.
Tonight, my husband Ammar is finally going to arrive accompanied by my two daughters Zoé and Irina. I cannot wait to finally see them again, I missed them so much over in Asia but I didn't want them to fly such a long time. They are scheduled to arrive at 9.16 PM. Can't wait!
Of course I am happy to answer your questions if you send any to me...
Good night, I'll write again tomorrow.
