Aran is also playing doubles with Sofia Arvidsson! I really like the team-up
I think they really get along, I remember reading somewhere that they went shopping together!
Yeah, that was in Miami. Aran lost to Czink in the 1st round in a 3rd set TB. Czink was serving for the match, Aran broke back. 3rd set was to be decided by a TB. Aran had a MP in that TB, but eventually lost. Then Sofia wrote this on her blog:
Have spoke a bit with Arantxa Rus here in Miami. She played the game before me yesterday and had a match point but unfortunately lost. She was of course very sad. After my match I met with her. I said I know how she feels. 2 years since I sat in the dressing room with the towel over my head at 00:30 at night, exhausted after 5 match points against third-place in the world. So I gave a small Arantxa suggestions ..
- Lets go shopping and forget about tennis ..
So we went to Dadeland shopping mall and spent a few hours there. Came out with more bags than we entered ..
-This was great fun. I didn't even think of my game one time, she said ...
