Good tournament week with a not so great ending! I will come back to that later in the text! Just before the trip down to Malmö I had some fine practices with Jakob Arvidsson-Ehn, Alex Boozer and Edvin Sköld! The feel was quite good! Physical status was better and my stamina was alright! Ready for the last Vintertour!

Turning Torso by night in Malmö
- A good tournament if you count out the final incident! Really tought first round against Ekenros where I was down 2-4 in the final set, but did somehow find a way to win..! Also a really tough quarterfinal against Brostrom-Poulsen where I think he ran out of gas in the final set! Really high level from him when he was in the zone..! Then a tough match again against young talent Sebastian Eriksson in the semifinals!
In the first set it worked out with the shift of pace in the rallies and a few unforced errors from Sebastian. Then after 6-2, 3-0, he started to play a lot better and stopped missing while I also falled back and played more defense. He managed to take 7 straight games to 3-6, 0-1! Then I found my best serving period this year and just landed most first serves with high speed! 3-2, 30-0! Played really well and then I just strained a muscle in my back in one serve! I havn’t felt anything in my back during the whole match so it was a big surprise! I tried to play another point after that, but it was completely impossible to play through the match. so I had to retire with 3-2 serving in the semifnal!
I hope this injury don’t last long, because it was still my best tournament this year and I intend to improve!
