Spaniard Nicolas Almagro reveals the last time he...

Had to pay for a tennis court?
That one is tough! I don't remember. Maybe I was 12 years old.

Lost something important?
I lose my wallet every day. I lost my passport one day before travelling to Australia. I was at the airport and couldn't find it, so I had to return home to get a new one. I ended up flying out a day later. I never found the old passport.

Missed a flight because he was running late?
I am lucky, that has never happened to me.

Being recognised helped him?
In London, [during the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals] we went to a Spanish restaurant without a reservation. We ended up getting very good seats.

Forgot a close friend or family member's birthday?
I forget every birthday and special days. I don't have a good memory for that.

Cooked for himself?
Never! But sometimes I have fried an egg or something like that.

Visited a country for the first time?
Kuala Lumpur, in September. The Petronas Towers [the tallest twin buildings in the world] were very impressive.

Had a row of seats to himself on a long flight?
A long time ago! Maybe two or three years ago.

Played a sport other than tennis, which carried the risk of injury?
When I am home, I play football every week on Wednesdays, with Juan Carlos Ferrero at his academy.

Asked someone for their autograph?
It must have been with Rafa van der Vaart [the Tottenham Hotspurs footballer], in the players' lounge at The O2.
