Comeback in San Jose
Finally - after 1 year and 3 months I´ll be back on tour. San Jose will be my first tournament and I´m really looking forward to play there.
I ´ve been waiting for this moment for so long. To not know when I would be playing on tour again and to practice without a goal (special date and tournament) in my head was very hard for me.
So, I really need to get back on tour and play matches. I can´t just practice anymore. This long, long break is over. I can´t tell you, how much this meens to me.
Please, no high expectations!!!
Even though, I´m so happy to start my comeback in San Jose I don´t want anybody to set their expectations too high, neither the fans or the journalists. During the first couple of weeks I just want to play matches to get the feel back. To be a part of the tour again. I´m not thinking of winning the tournament, I´m thinking of playing it! If I win a few matches: perfect!!!
You shouldn´t forget: I didn´t play any matches on tour for the last 15 months. And that´s a long time. It is hard enough for myself to take it slow and to be patient. But I need time to get back to the level I was at.
During the last weeks I still have had little problems with my shoulder and my back. Hopefully everything will be fine and the aches and pains will stay away.
Keep enjoying my website!
