So i guess this would be a good time to start my blog.. I have a pretty exciting subject, well at least to me... I just played on my first final!!!! WOW!
I must confess that it really hasn't hit me all the way yet. Mostly yesterday when i was watching the match on AVPtv.com and i saw all the things i used to see showing, like the player's name, where they are from, where they live now, how tall they are, and i always dreamt about having my name on the screen with all the details.. When i saw myself there on the screen with the text box saying all that info about me, i got all teary!!!
I am a very emotional girl, so yes i did get teary eyes, i had then the goose bumps and i got so nervous, so emotional... WOW! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!!!
Waiting for Geeter to announce me, you hear all those little yellow blow up thingys that i used to hate the noises they make, but this time was awesome, they sounded like harps in heaven, so perfect!!! hahahaha All the energy around us!! It was AWESOME!
And even though the first set wasn't what i would have like it to be, at least on the second set we showed everyone why we were there, we played better and most importantly Tati and I had so much fun! Even with EY and Nic bombing serves at us and playing so well, we really were enjoying the whole thing until the very end, and also when we took off SPRINTING out of the center court to shower off the sand and catch our flight that was leaving from Grand Rapids (about 1 hour away) in 1h 35min!
We had fans running over with us to the showers outside of the site to congratulate us and try to take pics, we had people talking to us while we were changing in the bathroom, they were telling us how much they wanted the match to go to three sets, and that they wanted us to win!!! I can only say WOW again!!!!! All the support and having all those people cheering for us, it was AMAZING!!!!
Then Tati and i had to rush to the airport and on our way we had this car going extremelly slow, like 15 mph, and i am not exaggerating.. Tati swerved to the right, the car did it too, she swerved to the left and the car did it too... Tati lost it and honked so much and then we had this little hand waving the signal to pass them up but we had a double yellow line, plus we were approaching the end of the road... Then we felt sorry, we thought: "-Oh maybe she is learning how to drive, poor woman...". Not even a second after we were done saying that i get a text message saying: "You guys in a hurry?". I replied: "Yes! Did u see us sprinting out of the site?? ha! We have a flight to catch!!!". And then i get a reply: "It's us! hahahahahahaha.". Us as in Anette Davis and Jenny Johnson Jordan driving in front of us... We finally caught up to their side and they were laughing so hard at us because we were so stressed, that was funny, it definately helped Tati and I to relax throughout the rest of the ride...
So we finally made to our flight, we were the very last 2 people to get in the aircraft, woooooo... Time to relax!!! NOT, the flight was only 35 min until we got to our layover in Chicago. So we went eat and then we got on our last flight and relaxed, well at least for a little bit. The flight was long, we watched a movie and then we were both bored out of our minds!! hahaha
We made it home safe! Thank goodness, and another week of training has started, now it's time to focus on the next tournament! Chi-Town here we come!!!!!
