I just got home from our 3rd tourney...
We finished 5th!!!! YAY! Back where we want to be AT LEAST!!!! I took my lucky charm with me! My little brother!!! He was sooooooo cute, so star struck with the other athletes.
We beat an upcoming team (Agatha/Raquel, who i LOVE!) that has given tons of trouble to the other teams lately 2-0, then our next match was going to be against the #1 team Juliana/Larissa, but unfortunately we made a decision to withdraw from that match due to an injury i got from the previous match. My back was feeling super tight and I had radiating pain going down my legs. So after a few adjustments the PT backed me up and confirmed the injury. With that I was able to not play on friday but still be qualified for saturday.
I woke up feeling still tight, very sore from the adjustment, but no radianting pain thank goodness!!!!!
We started the day well, we won our 1st match to go to 9th 2-0, then we were supposed to play at 11am, and the team did not show up until after the 5 min delay they are aloud to, so it was supposed to be automatic WO, but the tournament director took the blame for a "mistake" they made earlier on the board and told us we were going to play.
I never saw Tati so angry! WOW! Now it makes me laugh... but i was angry too.. Oh well.... We won in 2-0, it wasnt all that easy but we did it!!!
In Brazil you go from 9th place straight to 5th place, so there we were, seating on 5th going to play the quater finals against... Juliana/Larissa.
Man, we matched up again!!! Bummer!!!!! Oh well, we kept a good posture and we worked on our things. They are an amazing team, all we need is more time to get used to play against them. They have a different rythm i think..
But we are glad that after all that happened with my back we still finished 5th!
OHHHHHHHH..... BIG NEWS!!!! I am going to compete in the South American Tournament representing Brazil this weekend in Peru. I am going with an old teammate of mine Camila Bertozzi, Tati will be resting this weekend... I cannot wait to post some pics!!!!
