Tonight's match was a bit of a struggle. I felt like I was close to playing some good tennis but I could never quite get going. On the positive side, I got three matches under my belt here in Pattaya, I had such a nice time off the court, and it's progress after the disappointment of Melbourne.

Quite a strange experience for me today in Pattaya. It's not often you play at a venue with two courts side by side (nothing separating them) and with a big stand on the baseline and the sea on the sideline! It's a very unusual setting, but I must say I really enjoyed it.

I play my first match tomorrow. I've been here a while, so it will be good to finally play a competitive match. Mind you, I've been really enjoying my time at the resort, going to the pool and beach to relax after practice and fitness sessions. Here you can see me at the draw ceremony on Sunday.
