Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

I'm delighted to be here. I always love coming to Australia – it's my favorite country. I always come here for Christmas, either to Sydney or Melbourne, where I have family. That's one of the many things that make this a special place and a special tournament for me. Having my uncle and his family come to support me is great, and my fitness trainer Scott Byrnes is an Aussie.

I first came here when I was 14, for a junior tournament. My coach at the time, Eric van Harpen, arrived late, so I didn't have anyone to practice with before the tournament. So my cousin Marko, whom I must say is a bit of a hacker, served as my coach for a few days before the tournament. In the end, I won the tournament. He is the best coach I've ever had - we are undefeated together!

Going to my family's house in nearby Mentone for a barbecue is always one of the highlights of my trip. I'm a very family-orientated person, and for me just relaxing in the garden with friends, family and good food is one of my favorite things to do. I'm feeling very healthy and excited about the challenge ahead. I trained extremely hard in Sydney during the off-season and I think I'm in my best shape ever, and ready to handle the extreme conditions here.

I can honestly say that I haven't looked at the draw. I know some people may find this surprising, but it's an essential part of the idea of taking it one match at a time. Trust me, when players say they want to take it "match by match", they are telling the truth. I know it sounds boring, because everyone wants to speculate about possible quarterfinals between certain players, but as a player, if you start thinking too far ahead, you are doomed. Unfortunately, however, it's impossible not to find out who you might play in the later rounds. The draw is on the wall of the locker room, and journalists ask you about it in press conferences.

I am doing my best to concentrate only on my next match, which is tomorrow against Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea. I've never played her before and obviously it's not possible to scout one of her matches, so I will have to improvise.

The way I was able to do well at the French Open last year, and also at Wimbledon, was to take it match by match. If I can follow this rule here this year, I'm confident I can go far, and hopefully play some of the top players – whose names I don't want to know!
