Another day is coming to an end and I have to say it was a very nice, relaxing one! It was a day off!
I woke up in the morning, got dressed in casual clothes for a change and took the transport to Melbourne Tennis Centre. I had a nice 1h massage in the official physio’s room, I have to say it was very painful but at the same time amazing, because I know I always feel so much better afterwards. Just when I was finishing the massage I heard an announcement in the speakers in the club that they have some typical Australian animals in the player’s area. It’s always so exciting to be around animals you can’t see every day. So I’m attaching some photos I took with a baby kangaroo and a cute koala! They were so sweet, I think they were a little scared with all the people standing around them, but I have to say it was a very nice experience!
After those nice moments with the animals I took a car back to the apartment where we stay and walked to the Chapel Street, which is one of the most alive places around here and the best thing is that it’s just 5min walk away.
There are a lot of restaurants, bars, shops, etc etc.. Decided to have sushi for lunch, it’s one of my favorite meals! After that I walked through the shops a little bit, bought a few things as it’s always nice to get some stuff that maybe you can’t find back at home. Also got some food for the apartment, mostly fruits which I looooooove :)) This time I got blueberries, raspberries and mango!
Back to tennis for a little bit, just to inform you if you haven’t seen it on Twitter or Facebook yet, I will be playing doubles in Melbourne with a French Open champion Francesca Schiavone from Italy. I’m looking forward to it, hopefully she can give me some good advice, she is very experienced!
The draw comes out tomorrow (Friday) so we will have more news then. I will keep you posted!
Greetings from hot Australia 🙂
