Hey everyone. I’m sorry I did not make a post yesterday because my match against Marat Safin didn’t finish until the early hours of Friday morning.

It was a great atmosphere on Rod Laver Arena last night. At the beginning the fans weren’t into the match too much, but towards the end they were starting to feel the pressure we felt and began screaming their support (see picture left). It was nice to be back on Rod Laver Arena during a night session. I’m playing great tennis, Marat did too in the third and fourth sets – hitting the lines and serving so good. At the end I was physically in better shape I think than him. He got a bit tired and I held my concentration, serving pretty big at the end and I’m happy that I won. Jim Courier made me laugh when he asked me on court after the match if I was tired after having played five sets. I guess that’s the funniest question I have been asked during the week. I must be a boring person!

When I won I didn’t really do my post-match celebration like I said I was going to on Wednesday. I told the physios before the match what celebration I was going to do if I won. They said it was better not to do it out of respect for Marat and other players. Maybe if I get to the quarters or semifinals I’ll do it. It’s something really original and maybe people could take it the wrong way. So that’s why I didn’t do it. It’s just one funny thing that I wanted to do. Some people I spoke to said maybe I shouldn’t do it. I’m really sorry to my fans. I shouldn’t say something and then not do it. I hope I can play the semis and then show you.

I came in after the match to the locker room and spent 10 minutes on the bikes. Then took a shower and stretched. After that I did my press conference and returned for a massage. I ate a few sandwiches, as they put some sandwiches in the locker room for us. That was a really nice touch and then I went back to my hotel room around 3am.

It’s always tough going to sleep after a five-set match, having finished late. I was moving in bed: rolling around, talking alone, and thinking alone. I wasn’t talking out loud and I wasn’t dreaming, but I was thinking about the next match; what if I won the next match. Nice things. My adrenaline was going. But I found a way to sleep. I eventually went to sleep around 3:30am and woke up at 10am – without a wake-up call.

Today I have been feeling okay, not really tired. I’m pretty happy the way I am physically and am ready for tomorrow’s match!! I went out and had a hit for 45 minutes today, then I had a bit of treatment on my leg. I get treatment from ATP trainers, but it is not always the same one. There are around three or four of them; they do a perfect job and when I go to one the others know what I have. They work as a team. When I get a massage I go to the Australian masseurs. I don’t always pick the same one. Of course some guys bring their own trainers on the tour. I tried to do that; I didn’t like it because it’s another person in the group. It’s not easy living with the same person all the time. So that is why I stopped and I just work with the ATP trainers now. For sure it is easy having your own trainer; you can get a massage whenever you want and whatever you want. There are advantages and disadvantages.

I have noticed that there are less people at the tournament now. It’s always nice when there are a few people around in the locker room. As players you certainly know when fewer and fewer players around. It’s nice to know that there isn’t a queue for the physios and to know that 16 or 32 of you are left. I hope to win tomorrow and be in the second week of a Grand Slam again!

I don’t think the crowd will be against me when I play Lleyton [Hewitt], but for sure there will be a lot of support for him. He’s from Australia. My only concern is to go out and play my best tennis and try to win. That is what I have to do I guess.

Thanks for reading, check in again tomorrow!

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 hope you will forgive me for not making a post after my match with Lleyton The match ended at 4.30 in the morning but it was still another couple of hours before I made it back to the hotel. But today I will recap what happened...

With Roger's match from the day session going past 8 o'clock, Lleyton and I knew we were in for a late start, with Venus and Sania scheduled to play before us. I was a bit tired by the time I got into the match and it was tough to find rhythm. It was tough to lose such a close match but I had great emotions and that's why I love this game.

At the hotel after the match it's tough because you have flashes of the match go through your head. I got back to the hotel around 6.30 in the morning and I saw everyone waking up. I tried to sleep at 7 or 7.30 but I couldn't sleep. I had cramps, I was sweating. When I finally did fall to sleep the time passed very quickly. It felt like I had been asleep for just 10 minutes when my coach woke me up at 12 o'clock to tell me I had a flight to catch. Today I am going to Hawaii for a short holiday, which I feel like I need after such a long day on Saturday

The day of the match began for me around 8. I had some fruit for breakfast and then some coffee. And I always drink my energy drink in the morning to keep myself pumped up.

I went back to the room, called my girlfriend and then went to the courts. The physio worked on my left thigh, which was a bit tight. Around 12 I started to warm up in the gym with my physical coach. I was on the bike and did some stretching. Then I had something to eat in the room and then had a nap between 2 and 4. I brushed my teeth, packed my stuff and headed to the courts. And then I waited

I have loved blogging this week It's really, really fun and thank you for reading. I also love Australia and the people here so it's sad to be leaving. I have so much positive energy. I am very happy with my tournament and the way I am playing.

I want to thank my fans for their great support the past three days and thanks to the crowd for being really nice to me.

Marcos
