Chantal Chan's Monday Blog
Hi everyone, it's Chantal from the beautiful Istanbul!!
Feel sad today as there was a disastrous earthquake in the east Turkey
, i really wish all the best for people there and i want you all to support them by donating money to them!
Time for some party stuff!
It's always nice to hang around with other players in the season-ending party, as all of us were well-dressed instead of wearing sporty outfits on courts!! We put our competitions aside and had such a wonderful time, great wine, players looking-good and traditional Turkish cuisine, that certainly made a great party!! Let me give you guys a summary on what other players do:
looked so pissed off (because of the YEC drama) and destroyed some chairs in the party when she was drunk
, but generally she looked gorgeous and she even brought her husband, who was quite an eye candy.
, alongside Rufline's doubles partner Jennifer,
chatted with one another in a very happy mood.
But on the other side, Vittoria
, being so frustrated as her direct place was stolen at the very last minute, by Sabine
's dream run, drunk wine all the time and even planned an assault on Sabine!!
Only was she stopped by her kind doubles partner, Anastasia
, who looked stunning in her traditional Turkish dress.
hung around in another corner, but my lovely doubles partner was still disappointed about her form this year and keep being annoying... I hope she can get it together here and feel better about herself. BTW, this is my dress at the party, isn't it gorgeous?
Our player representative this week, Cornelia
, was busy talking with the businessmen attending the party, i must say Coco, you have done such a wonderful job assisting the operation of this tournament!!
Best-dressed players today go to Ella
, they simply have the flawless bodies, they look so hot that every men were glazing on them!! (Hate it...)
were still discussing strategies on how to defeat Jennifer and Ruflina on one side, with Siri being quite sad about not qualifying for the singles tournament, in which she did so well last year.
was the scene-stealer of this evening, as she just kept singing on the stage... But it didn't matter as she had such a terrific voice!!! Clair
was on the other side playing cards with each other.
Oh wait, where's Pamela
, our world No.1?? Ouch, she was still practicing right before the party and she attended the party wearing sweaty clothes, how determined was she...
And WTH was that??? Luna-Willow
was here, eating all the cakes
, get help girl...
That's a wrap up of what was going on at the party!! I will start practicing tomorrow and i hope i can bring my best form this week, this year simply has been such an unexpected year for me as i played a lot better than i expected, reaching the top 10 this week certainly boosted my confidence!! (Nobody can compete against me for the Newcomer of the Year!!) BTW, good luck to all other players!!
Bye for now, and looking forward to blogging this week.
