C'est le thème d'une interview de la WTA
Et la personnalité qu'elles aimeraient rencontrer aussi.
Je suis deçu, personne ne m'a cité
Faut dire qu'elle m'ont toutes rencontré And Now For Something Completely Different...
Post-match press conferences usually focus on the match just played or the match coming up, how the players feel about their form or their seasons, even their career goals. But there's a lot we still don't know about the stars of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, on and off the court. We recently caught up with about a dozen of them and asked some questions that were... different. Here are the first two.If you weren't a tennis player, what would you be?
Ai Sugiyama: "A golfer. Or something to do with music, like a singer or dancer, or a musical actor. I was always doing ballet, figure skating, gymnastics and playing outside when I was younger."
Vera Zvonareva: "I've been doing this since I was six years old. I can't imagine doing anything else. But right now I'm studying at the university in the faculty of economics, so maybe when I'm done with tennis I'll try to do something in that field. I actually got my first degree in physical education so this is my second."
Patty Schnyder: "An astronaut. It was the first thing I wanted to be when I was a kid. And I'm still so impressed with pictures of space. It really grabs me."
Jelena Jankovic: "An actress. I've always watched a lot of movies. With my brother and my friends when we were much younger, I would always try imitating all of these actors. I loved being in school plays too."
Katarina Srebotnik: "Something to do with animals, dogs especially. Not a vet, because I'm not very good with things like that; more like helping them through adoption and helping them find a good owner."
Elena Dementieva: "A doctor. I love medicine. My grandma is a doctor and I've always admired her for it. Right now I would probably be in medical school."
Edina Gallovits: "Probably a snowboarder. I've been getting into that over the last few years. We went on vacation a few years ago and I went skiing and got really bored, so I took a snowboarding lesson. I bought a snowboard right away!"
Olga Govortsova: "A gymnast. I always did both tennis and gymnastics when I was a kid and when I was six my mom chose tennis for me. Maybe I'm too tall for gymnastics now, so that was probably a good decision!"
Alizé Cornet: "A scientist. My older brother, who is 30 now, is a biologist, and I always wanted to do what he was doing. I'd love to study microbiology and cells, and just know everything there is to know about them."
Dominika Cibulkova: "I think I'd be an actress, because when I was younger I was always in school plays and loved it. I always wanted to be a star!"
Cara Black: "I'd probably be a physio or a sports agent. Definitely something to do with sports. When I was young I always thought I'd do something with sports."
Liezel Huber: "Definitely something to do with helping people or animals, but nothing to do with tennis probably. Maybe a social worker, a vet or a foster parent. Salary wouldn't matter, just the feeling of helping people."If you could meet one person you've never met, who would it be?
Dominika Cibulkova: "I like a lot of singers. Probably Justin Timberlake. I like his style and songs. He's really cool. If not him then maybe 50 Cent."
Liezel Huber: "It would have to be someone who gives back or does humanitarian work. I get inspired by people that give their time and work tirelessy for worthy causes. I'd probably pick a celebrity who does that kind of thing - like Angelina Jolie or Oprah Winfrey - but not because of their celebrity status."
Alizé Cornet: "Since I was young my idol has been Andy Roddick. He's a role model for me. I've never had a chance to speak with him, but if it comes one day I'll be so happy. It would be a dream come true for me. I try to hit my forehand like him. My service motion is kind of like him, although his serve is amazing."
Elena Dementieva: "I would love to spend a day with President Putin. I like him a lot. He's very intelligent. It would be very interesting for me."
Edina Gallovits: "Tiger Woods. I just think he's one of the most amazing athletes in the world. I think he's great. He wrote history."
Jelena Jankovic: "Justin Timberlake. I like his music and I like his looks. And I liked the song he did with Madonna a lot."
Katarina Srebotnik: "I have always wanted to go to a Céline Dion concert. I hope one day I'll finally get to see her and maybe even meet her. I'd love to have a photo taken with her and chat with her... I heard a rumor she might only tour for a year after she's done in Vegas, but I hope it's just a false rumor."
Ai Sugiyama: "Michael Jordan. The way he thinks and what he says are amazing. Since I was young I've been a big admirer of his. He was my idol. And obviously the way he plays basketball is so nice to watch. I can only hope I'll have the chance to meet him one day."
Agnes Szavay: "Jennifer Aniston. She's my favorite actor and I'd love to meet her one day. I really love Friends."
Vera Zvonareva: "I really like Angelina Jolie. Not only is she a great actress, but she seems like a really interesting person. I'm also a big fan of Matt Damon, also a really good actor. I love some of his movies, like The Bourne Identity and The Talented Mr. Ripley."
