A post to my supporters

Hello, I know I didn't write much blogs recently but I promise thats about to change. First a few words about Wimbledon.. It was great success for me. It was difficult in the beginning because I lost first round in last 4 attempts . I was very nervous before 1st round against Lacko but that feeling disappeared when I stepped on the court. Each match I played better and I was really satisfied with my game. I had tough draw. I beat two top ten players and in quarters I had to face Federer. Maybe against him I didn't serve so well but he did played better than anybody else. Against him I started feeling pain in my wrist. After Wimby I was in Croatia for Davis Cup tie against USA. It was in little town Porec on the coast. Very nice organization. I finally managed to win a match in Five sets. It was a great feeling especially 'cause I won after being 2 sets down against Blake. We won the tie 3/2. After that I took 2 weeks off to fix the wrist problem that was bothering me since that match against Roger in Wimbledon. To answer Brian's question, I'm preparing in Florida for the tournament in Washington. I hope I'll be ready. Last time I was there I played semis. I remember it was very hot and humid. Thats it my friends. talk to you soon Ivo
