Hello and welcome to my first WTA Blog!

I played the Kremlin Cup last year and I was really surprised at how slow the courts were, so this year I came a few days earlier to practice here. I knew what to expect. So for sure this year will be better for me than last year!

I had my first match today against Francesca Schiavone. I don't think I was focused well in the beginning and she started very well, and so I went down 2-0. But after those two games I really started believing I could win this match. I started to play better and came back - I was happy with how I played today.

Francesca is a very, very tough player. A great fighter. She's more dangerous on clay because she plays with so much topspin. I'm not sure she's playing as well as she was when she won Roland Garros, but she's still great. After the match she was talking to me a little bit - she's a really nice person, as well.

This is the last week of the season for me, and looking back, it has been a tough year. In the beginning of the year I was playing week after week so I could get to the Olympics, and then in between Wimbledon and the Olympics I played in the US too - if I knew I'd make the Olympics, I wouldn't have played in between! I was playing so much this year and I'm a little bit tired.

But on the other hand, I've been playing very well in the second half of the year. I'm really happy about it. My goal was actually to be in the Top 50, so if someone told me at the beginning of the year I'd be Top 30, I would be so happy. I think my best memory was my first final of a WTA tournament, in 's-Hertogenbosch. I love playing on grass and I played really well there, so I think that was my best memory in 2012, but there are a lot of other good ones.

Have a nice day everyone and I'll write you all again tomorrow

Oh and also, to my coach... Happy Birthday!!

Ula

Hello again everyone

So last night I didn't really do much. Even though it was my coach's birthday, it was already pretty late after my match, so I just gave him a present (which he was happy with!) and that's pretty much it, it was off to bed...

Every morning we go to Starbucks for breakfast, because I love the Vanilla Lattes. And of course this morning we did that again, and then I went to the courts to practice, then had a massage, then came back and had a rest.

Because I didn't have a match today I had time to do some other fun things, and one of them was an autograph session - it was awesome! I didn't expect so many people would be there, and so many kids pushing to get an autograph. It's nice to see how many fans I have in Moscow. I really enjoyed meeting them!

I also had my make-up done by Oriflame, which was fun. I've attached photos




Tomorrow I have my second round match against Caroline. I played her in April this year, so I know her game, and my sister has played her a couple of times this year too. She's not only an amazing player, she's also my best friend. At tournaments we go to dinner and spend time together all the time, and she speaks Polish so it's really nice. It will be a tough match - but when I go on the court I'm not really thinking about who's on the other side of the net, whether it's my friend or a big star. I just focus on my game and try to win every match.

Speaking of my sister, I've been asked whether I'm going to go to Istanbul next week to watch her, but I'm actually going to Los Angeles for the week because I'm doing a photo shoot and filming for a new app, so fans can follow my career better - what I'm doing, where I'm playing, my blog, photos, videos... the company doing it is Emediastar and I'm very excited about it! Stay tuned...

The week after that I'll see my sister because we're going on vacation! We aren't sure where yet, but for sure we'll be going somewhere hot with a nice beach, an island or something... because in Poland it's cold right now!

Then Christmas at home, then off to Australia right away...

Have a good night and I'll talk to you again tomorrow

Hello everyone,

Caroline was playing so well today. This surface really suits her game - she was running very well and not missing - so it was tough. It was my last match for the year and it could have been better, but she was just better...

I'll work hard in the off-season and come back better next year!

Because this was a night match I had all day, and I didn't want to spend all day in the room. So I went to the gym and did some running and some stretching, then came to the courts around 3 or 4 o'clock. I was warming up then just waiting for my match. I like playing night session, so it wasn't too bad to wait.

Yesterday I mentioned going to LA and then on vacation, and after that I'm going to go home to Krakow. I'm just going to practice there with Agnieszka. It's our base and we try to practice there whenever we can during the season.

Thank you all for reading my blog this week! And thank you for all of your questions - I'll answer some of them now... take care

Ula
