Break it down and do it one step at a time.  Do exactly as it says---its pretty explicit.  Do not overthink it just do it.  

Ch 7

tr in 7th ch from hook

ch 2

tr in same stitch that you worked your other tr into

ch 2

tr in same stitch that you worked your other tr into

ch 2

Join with slip st to tight ---typo? of beginning ch 7

This should make 4 ch 2 spaces.

The ch 7 would count as 1 tr and 1 ch 2 space

I think 'fight' is probably a typo for 'first'. 

However, 'round 2' is made all into 1 stitch of round 1; not impossible, but I wouldn't call it a 'round', it's more like a 'sprout' off the center circle, that radiates away and returns to the circle in the same stitch.

I've seen a doily that did something (sort of) similar, it started with a center circle and made 'petals' that sprouted out from the center, then back again, repeating until you arrived again where you started.  In other words, I'm guessing 'round 3' might be "slst over a stitch or 2 in round 1 (to scoot over a little), and repeat what you did in round 2", and so on for subsequent 'rounds' all around the initial circle.

The biggest 'problem' with my theory is calling each petal of a flower-shape a 'round' is misleading, but we've seen stranger things in the help section.

Katia, is the pattern on the internet somewhere, or a photo of the finished item?  I've found a lot of times the photo can answer a lot of questions.
