Alltid najs att komma tillbaka till campus efter tävling. Det är mysigt här och känns som hemma.
This weekend was my tennis weekend. I played really good tennis and fought really hard. I won 3 out of 3 singles, as number 3 and 4. And I won 2 out of 3 doubles with Lea. I really enjoy playing with her and I think we complete each other both game wise and mentally. We were really close to win the third match as well... This weekend I love tennis.
This morning we drove 1,5h to Greensboro, another city in North Carolina, to play tournament. We started with doubles. We all won. And now we have played singles, and I won my match in a super tiebreak. So nice! Now we're having lunch watching two of our teammates who are still playing. Soon we will play a second single for the day.
Me by me. Many thoughts. Blue is confusion, melancholy. Yellow is happiness, life. Red is love and passion.
Here are two pics from today's and the Monday's lifting in the gym. Can you find me? I'm in two...
The humidity continues and yesterday we had to end practice early because of lightening.
Now it's Friday and this week went by fast. We have no practice this weekend, so it's gonna be nice to rest (and study).
So today I went for the first time ever to the trainer. Not because I'm injured but because of my very sore and tight right arm. Couldn't barely hit my forehand yesterday, I felt so week. But now I got treated with some scraping massage so I feel more relaxed now. The resources we got as student athletes are great!!!
Today I draw a wood model in my drawing class. Again satisfied with the result. I love to draw from real life with just a pencil!!!
Here are some tennis pictures from the weekend. Never have I ever had this many pictures of me playing tennis. Love it!
Today my dear little brother Frank turns sweet 16 :))))) Wish I could celebrate with you.
Had a great weekend in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. Played good tennis and won most matches. Yesterday I won the last match of the tournament. I started very passive and tight and felt so nervous (down 1-4). But then I overcome it and won 7-6 6-2. I'm working on containing my non-nervous attitude and well-playing during the whole matches.
Yesterday when we ate dinner at a mall in Wilmington we had some time over for shopping. I bought heart-shaped sunglasses, always wanted that :D😍
Me and Lea are undefeated at no 3 doubles so far this season. Really nice! Now it's time for singles.

We live right at the beach. Just walked down there with Huda, Alex and Ana. It's so beautiful! And the waves are so strong.

Just won the first doubles match of the tournament together with Lea, against a Winthrop team.
We are here now and ready for our first match. We start with doubles and then later we will play singles.
Now I've packed my bag because tomorrow we are traveling to Wilmington to play a tournament over the weekend. We will be gone three nights and we will live in a house on the beach :) ofc I'm bringing the camera!
Looook what Isabel in my team gave me and the other girls today:))) A handmade bracelet from Bolivia! I love it!
100% wins today. Me and Lea just lost 1 game today, and we played two doubles. In my single I won 6-2 6-1. Played better today and am happy with the result.
Done for the day. Didn't play amazing but okey. In the first match I played the 4th single and lost. She was good but I didn't manage to play very good. The second single as the 5th player I won and thereafter I won the doubles with my Croatian partner Lea (second picture).
Now we're soon leaving for our first match of the season, and my first match as a camel. We will play two or three teams. One of them is East Carolina who me and my old Uconn-team played.
In a couple of minutes we leave for our first matches. We will play several different teams, for example East Carolina.
Today it was one month since I came back to the US after the summer and since I came to my new university. So far I really feel like home. I enjoy the tennis (I play well), the people, the coaches and the classes I'm taking. I hope I will continue feeling like this.
