recover. But it was still a very good week for me."

Katarina this year and I have different partners, but we
played together last year and know each other very well.
It was a tough week and a tough final, but we stayed

nice. We're really happy with this victory."

tournament!. It's always fun to play here and I always
seem to play well here. Anna also has great memories
playing here. I always look forward to coming back."
