If you could have any other job outside of tennis, what would you like to do?
Something with computers probably. I like to have fun with different kinds of programmes. Also I like to play some games, some PlayStation. So maybe I would become a professional PlayStation player!
You’re quite fiery on the tennis court, does that extend itself to when you’re playing a game of cards or golf?
I like to play ping pong sometimes with my friends and I’m always trying my best and always pumped up.
Do you ever lose your temper?
Sometimes yes (laughs). For example today, when Thompson was trying to hit full power at me when I was on the volley, I was a little bit annoyed and I said to myself, ‘No chance I’m going to lose this match now!’
What are three things that you couldn’t live without?
PlayStation. Tennis. And…..Mum!
What are your favourite PlayStation games?
Who would be your dream mixed doubles partner?
Oooh that’s a tricky question…. Eva Longoria!
If you could play against any player, on any court, who would it be and where?
It has to be a tennis player?
That was the general idea…
Let’s say Andy Murray, Wimbledon again, Centre Court because he has the coolest mum!
When was the last time you cooked for yourself or others?
Can’t cook or won’t cook?
I hate it and I will never cook.
My girlfriend… or my Mum sometimes (laughs).
