I flew over to the far east today to play three WTA-Tournaments in Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing. The US Open were quite a disappointment, so I’m eager to show my best tennis over here. Then, after two more tournaments in Linz and Luxembourg, a wonderful, exhausting and successful season comes to its end. Hope, you keep your fingers crossed for me – I’ll reward you with some good performances.
