“ Hey everybody! Season is officially over for me. Wanted to thank you ALL for such a great support and so many wonderful wishes. I wish I could have been in better form for the last tournament but as I said before - everything happens for a reason. I am more than happy with everything that me and my team have achieved this year, and I will treasure and value this experience forever. Now I will rest well and soon start with preparations for season 2012. Once again, thank you for being my fans and friends, having your support throughout the year was a very important "ingredient" of the "winning formula " :) “
