Favourite Ice Cream Flavor: "Chocolate."

Current Car: "Jeep (red)."

First Job: "This is my only job."

Greatest Sports Moment: "Winning the French Open mixed doubles (with Casey Dellacqua over Srebotnik/Zimonjic). You watch these matches on television, and you wish that someday you can be there. To be on this stage playing a Grand Slam final, and to come out with a win, and to say now for the rest of my life that I’m a Grand Slam champion, it’s amazing."

Most Painful Moment: "Losing in the finals of NCAA doubles. We lost to a team from Auburn."

Best You Ever Felt On Court: "I played a tournament in Barcelona this year and we beat all the good teams. We beat the Bryans (who were on a 10-match win streak) and we beat Melzer/Zimonjic (and also Mirnyi/Nestor). Yeah, those were good matches."

Strangest Match: "I played a match in Kuala Lumpur last year. We won 21-19 in the third set tiebreak. Against Santiago Gonzalez and Travis Rettemaier."

Favourite Players To Watch: "Federer. And I like watching Dimitrov. He plays like Federer."

Favourite Sport Outside Tennis: "Football."

Funny Tennis Memory: "I got one from Wimbledon this year. The baseline umpire fell asleep during the match [smiles]."
