According to her new diary entry. ;)



Training in Australia / December 24, 2008
I feel like I've done a lot over the past month or so. Iíve even been to a couple of football matches. The first one was in Belgrade. It was Serbia against Bulgaria and it was the last match of Savo Milosevic before he retired. I know him a little bit after he came to my birthday party last year. Heís a great guy and I was lucky to get the chance to go down onto the pitch to meet him after the game.

Then, before I left to Australia, I went to see Real Madrid in the Champions League at the Bernabeu stadium. It was my second Real Madrid match; the atmosphere there is amazing. It was great to have the time to do that. During the short holidays in the off-season I have the opportunity to do some things that I maybe wouldnít do during the season.

Another highlight of my off-season was going to a concert of Djordje Balasevic in Belgrade. He is a musician who has a habit of telling stories about his childhood in between songsÖitís hard to explain but letís just say they are very amusing stories. I laughed a lot.

The main reason I went to Belgrade was actually to visit my university mentor and a few professors, and to get some new books to take to Australia. My goal is to pass some exams next year.

Right now I am in Australia and Iím going through the most intense training period of the season. I have three sessions a day most days, combining both practice on the court and fitness. Itís very exhausting.

My first morning in Australia is always the most enjoyable of the year, because I am coming from the cold of Europe, and have the chance to walk along the beautiful, sunny beach and just take in the sight of the clean, blue ocean.

The parks in Queensland are beautiful to run around in. I am sure I would be enjoying the scenery more if I wasn't working so hard, although it makes the tough physical work easier to bear when the surroundings are so nice. Actually we have incorporated the surroundings into my fitness regime, because I have been running along the sandy beaches and sprinting up hills.

Considering all the intense work I am doing, in the evenings I just enjoy relaxing with a long dinner with my team, and on my days off I tend to just take it easy with a book Ė I am grateful for the rest! I hope to explore the local area some more in the coming days.

Love
Ana

That was a really nice Diary entry.

It's great to see that Ana is working hard. 3 sessions a day is quite a work out, considering she is including on court practice. Let's hope she can fine tune her shots and improve her game. :bounce:

Also nice to see that she is taking her studies seriously, trying to move foward with them. It's always important for the mind. :D

Niya, you're becoming a complete Ancitard, I see. :worship:
If I remember well Ana doesn't study anything in particular, just took a general course. She had some psychology, economics and Greek mythology (?) classes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I thought she began the course like that.. a general course. And she wanted to go with psychology. But it would take too much of her and demand on site classes. So she ended up taking Finances, which is what she is studying now.
