Not a lucky draw to say the least
Woke up to a shiny bright morning in Estoril in a retro hotel room - totally 70s. It actually brought me back to my childhood days traveling with my family #yesiamthatold #andproudofit
Entered breakfast room with an ocean view and was welcomed with hugs from fellow Swedes. #teamspirit
Training Session 1
There is always a love-hate feeling that takes over me during first training sessions away. One half of me is bubbling with excitement to get a chance to test the new environment before match time. The other half is annoyed and frustrated that certain things just don't work like they do on home turf. There's a difference in the glass and the carpet. And let's not forget the wind and that big bright yellow thing in the sky that we hardly ever see in Sweden. But I can't let it bother me too much, I have to accept that it takes time to adapt. LET IT GO.
Training Session 2
Ok, could not let it go. Frustration. Too many mistakes. Terrible. Inhale. Exhale. Better today than tomorrow...
Just found out what time we play our individual match tomorrow - 18.00 against Spaniards Alba Galan Romo and Maria Carmen Villalba Sanchez! Not a lucky draw to say the least, but it is always a great experience to go against top players of the world. So, Mari and I will be digging for some games. Since, we'll be playing against the stars we just might end up on center court... live-stream potential? Anyhow, please wish us luck! #dancingwiththestars #starstruck
