Miami, to me, is an incredible city: it has the beauty of the US East Coast with its beaches and its avenues by the coast that turn this place into a paradise that never rests. The city of the Gulf has many virtues, but the one that captivates me the most is the latino taste that can be perceived from the very moment you start discovering it. At the beach, you will always listen the Cuban, Uruguayan, Mexican and Colombian accents as you walk on by.

On the days previous to the second Masters of the year I did some hard training. Along with my team, we made of Fisher Island our training base; the place is so comfortable that allowed us to fit together and refine our strategies and the game details.

The Miami Masters had great moments; the highlight to me was the last match when I had the chance to play against the British player, Andy Murray. I’ve played against him before at the Barcelona tournament, the Roland Garros and the Madrid Masters where I won. The tennis is always bringing new chances and I’m sure that we will meet again pretty soon.

When it all finished I was already getting ready to take off to the next stop at Houston, TX. There, I will have to secure my spot in the semifinals, just as I did one year ago; this will be the third tournament in the US so far this year. A lot of adventures and challenges await ahead and we’ll keep moving forward, facing what’s to come.

Thank you all for your support. Let’s go!
