"I ended up having a day off before having doubles on Monday with my partner Jia-Jing Lu from China. ... It was a terrible tournament for me and felt like a total waste.
I’m not planning on ever going back to Bogota. The only saving grace of the tournament was the exotic fruit which I throughly enjoyed. I got to try some pear guavas, some type of cactus fruit, papaya and mangosteens.
After the doubles finished we immediately were looking into how to get out of Bogota since my next tournament was in China. We ended up leaving that night on a redeye to Los Angeles. My coach, Joel, has a good friend in LA so we decided to break up the trip instead of flying over 30 hours to China straight. The cheapest flight ended up being from Bogota to Houston (5.5 hours) to LA (3.5 hours) getting in at 9 am on Tuesday. I was exhausted but we still got out and practiced after I took a nap. Stopping in LA gave us a chance to do laundry, which most people take for granted. In Bogota it cost $5 a kilo so I was just washing the necessary clothes in the sink. That night it was back onto a plane for our second straight redeye to Beijing. I was so tired that I slept about 8 or 9 hours of the flight.
By the time I got to Beijing it was 5:30 am on Thursday. Totally skipped Wednesday which was weird. Our flight was supposed to go to Zhengzhou, but we had a 15 hour layover in Beijing so instead of hanging out we got our luggage and took the subway to the train station where we caught a bullet train to Zhengzhou. We didn’t make it to the hotel until 3:30 in the afternoon so we just dropped off our stuff and went to the tennis courts to practice. I was happy with my practice since conditions were slow and I felt good to be back at sea level. After practice I had dinner and got some much needed rest in a real bed. The bed felt heavenly after not getting a normal nights rest for two days. ..."
