”No danger on the roof” (I know it sounds silly but thats the translation of the saying from Swedish). Thats what Sofia is saying at 9-6 in super tiebreak today…sounds very comfortable. NOOOOT! Everyone knows that in supertiebreak everything is possible and doesnt matter so much what the score is. But this time Sofia was right, we won 10-8 after a winning forehand down the line signed by Arvidsson. So what else could i say then ”yes everything under control here;)”?!
No seriously it was a fun win today. It’s a long time since both me and Sofia were in semis in doubles and playing well. So thats really fun! Seeing as i lost early in the singles i at least have something to look forward to everyday still with the doubles. Gives me some confidence and energy that i for sure need!
Singles was no success this week. It was a hard loss especially mentally. I am changing a few [...]
All the way from Buenos Aires i have now landed in Memphis. It’s actually already a few days now that i have been here now. Practicing and preparing for the indoor hard court. Its different again to play indoor with the start and stops. Clay is more nice for your body in my opinion when you can slide and without the extreme turns…I like to play indoor…I like everything though. Indoor, outdoor, clay, plastic you name it…every surface is unique and a challenge!
Me and Jeff my coach have been up early in the mornings to get the whole practice courts alone. Twice we started at 7.30 and i can feel today that it has been worth it. Im hitting the ball i think better than i have been for a long time. So that makes it really fun to practice but [...]
Before this years Fed Cup ITF has changed a little with the rules when it comes to matches that are already dead. Like if a team is up 3-0 then the 4th singles will not be played. So on the press conference here in Argentina before the weekend matches Sofia got asked the question if she thought this new rule was a good thing. And Sofia was answering very short and precise ”when the match is over, its over”.
This little short phrase, that Miss Arvidsson was charming the whole Argentinas press people with (NOOOOT), got really stuck in [...]
I was the last one to arrive here in Buenos Aires. So now we are all together and it feels nice to have a new fed cup tie coming up. Its always a challenge to play for your country and every time is unique in its own way.
The center court where we will play is very big, im not sure how many people that fit but my guess would be around 14.000. During our match i think we will be happy with 2 or 3.000 actually.
Seeing as the stadium is very big its not much wind coming in so when its hot its very HOT. I heard that the German men played against Argentina here last weekend in DC and it was like 50* on the court. Again its [...]
Back on court again and it’s a great feeling. Get the heart rate up and feel the legs getting heavy. Heart is beating extra fast first few sessions back on court even though my break was not that long. But beginning of next week i will be back to normal i hope=)
Yesterday evening i was invited to a ”champion dinner” in Helsingborg city hall. It’s a dinner Helsingborg city is organizing every year for all the Helsingborg sport people that have been winning a Swedish championship during the year or taking a medal in a nordic championship, european, world championship and of course olympic games.
Me my self and i together with my other amazing team mates won swedish championship for our tennis club. So we all were there and ate some good food and [...]
