I had practice today at 12pm, lunch on-site then quickly left to return to my hotel. I relaxed by watching Prison Break and the Nadal-Simon match. I'm really living it up, huh?

It's not just a case of needing to rest physically in order to be in peak shape for my matches; the mental energy required for a three set match is tremendous. I admit that occasionally my focus can wander, but it's not very often, and when it does I pinch myself to regain concentration. A match situation is intense, and you must focus completely on what you are doing, even during the change of ends.

Every player is different and has to find their triggers to focus properly. I think about my footwork - am I going around the ball or going straight to it - and I ask myself. "Am I watching the ball closely enough?" Obviously that takes a lot out of you mentally and after a tough three set match I'm sometimes completely empty.

Shopping is one of my favorite things, but I always save that until after the tournament. As all women know, you need lots of energy for a proper shopping trip, and I can't afford to waste that while I'm still involved in competition. Even something like sightseeing can be energy sapping, so I also save that for after the tournament. It's tempting to do something fun on a rest day, but basically I am here to try and win the tournament and I will do everything possible to maximize my chances.

At the US Open in New York last year my favourite thing to do on days that I didn't have matches was to visit book shops. I would relax with a coffee and a book most afternoons. During the off-season I was able to do a few more exciting things, for example I attended a film premiere, went to a soccer match in London, and had a big birthday party in Belgrade.

Love,

Ana

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.

Fan questions answered...

I believe this year's Australian Open title is yours for the taking. You come into the tournament in great form, which is very important. What are the factors needed to win this tournament? Thank you. - TTL

Ana: Thanks. I am actually trying not to think too far ahead, but it's hard not to get overexcited after a good performance such as yesterday. The way I have been able to win tournaments in the past has been to relax and take it match by match.

Who are some of the girls on the Tour you feel most comfortable with? To hang out, or hit with... stuff like that. - Jason

Ana: The players I am most friendly with in women's tennis are Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Sanja Ancic. I am also friends with Novak Djokovic and Janko Tipsarevic.

What part of tennis is your favorite - the fans, the travel, or the tennis? - Roger, France

Ana: The tennis. Competing on the court is what I love the most.
