The event was leading up to this day and now I get to meet Natalie again in the finals. Preparing myself for a head to head match since Malaysia, I knew this was going to be an exciting match.

She started getting comfortable with her shots by hitting some winners right from the word GO. I got up to speed after a few points and even falling behind, I needed to keep it going.

Suddenly, everything just came together for me both my movement and focus. Just managing to take that first game, I worked harder in the second and third knowing that I needed to push this last bit to take it further.

It’s a great feeling to win this tournament in front of such an appreciative crowd. Already looking forward to this coming week in the Texas Open to get going again. Now, I’ll be swimming with the sting rays in a short while. Should be fun!
