Sam’s Miami Blog Part IV
Today was a great day. I won both my matches. My singles match was a long one again against Virginie Razzano. I eventually won 6-1 in the third set.
It was very humid today so probably took a little more out of both of us then usual. After a quick rest I was back out on the court with Nadia for our doubles match. We won 6-0 7-5. I didn’t go out for dinner tonight, I’m a little tired and too lazy to go back out again so I ordered room service. I’m waiting for it to come to now so hopefully it’s good and doesn’t disappoint otherwise I’m going to have to finish the packet of pita chips I have (haha).
I’m 5th match on tomorrow so I’m happy I can have a bit of a sleep-in and go out to the courts early in the afternoon.
Here’s a few more answers to all your questions:
Will you be playing with Nadia for the rest of the year? Noah, USA
We are seeing how it goes and just deciding where we will along the way. So far it has gone well and we are enjoying it so I think we will.
What is your favorite book? Irah
I don’t really read that many books but one of my favourites is an autobiography by Greg Welch called Heart of a Champion. I read it on a flight from LA to Tampa and loved it.
Do you follow Aussie Rules Football? Wayne, Australia
Sort of but it’s hard for me to get really into it when I’m away for most of the season but I follow the Saints. If I get back to Australia during the season this year I’ll hopefully be able to make it to a game.
What is your favorite specialty coffee beverage? Wanda, Canada
I just like a plain latte. Have to have one every morning with breakfast. Sometimes mix it up and get an iced latte.
Do you like going to the beach? Sasko, Macedonia
I love going to the beach. Last year I went snorkeling for the first time in Bali, photos are here on my website. I did all my pre season at Coogee beach which involved lots of swimming and on my days off snorkeling at Clovelly and Gordon’s Bay. These are a couple of my favourite places in the world. I grew up on the Gold Coast in Queensland so I was spoilt with great beaches.
Do you collect any souvenirs from tournaments? Aaron, Canada
Not really but if they have a cool towel or something like that, one usually ends up in my bag. My house in Tampa has quite a variety of towels.
What is/was your favorite cartoon? Ben, Australia
I liked all the Bugs Bunny cartoons and The Flintstones/ Jetsons hour. Now I don’t mind watching The Simpsons and Family Guy on occasions.
Which tennis legend would you have loved to play doubles with? Sandrine
Monica Seles or Steffi Graf
Well it’s time for me to sign off now, I’m buggered and I’m going to relax and watch a bit of TV now. Life, the documentary is on, I love watching anything involving animals.
Wish me luck for tomorrow.
