Sorana Cirstea is beautiful, sweet, and stubborn (self-proclaimed), and she kindly answered our 15 Burning Questions after winning her first round match at the BNP Paribas Open. To find out her hip-hop name, her favorite app, and her best and worst qualities, check out the interview below! Enjoy!
If you were a hip hop artist, what would your name be?
Probably my nickname, its Sori, so probably would be my name. Nothing funny comes!
Well, what is the name of your first pet?
I actually had 4 parrots, but they have no names, they are 1, 2, 3, and 4. (laughter)
Well that won’t work then, never mind! (laughter) Ummm....What is your favorite app that you use?
My favorite app is a fashion app, NET-A-PORTER, it’s an online shopping site. [I use it] I wouldn’t say daily, I would say hourly. (laughter) Usually I use a lot of apps about fashion and stuff.
If you could switch places with anyone and live their life for one day, who would it be and why?
I would like to be Rihanna. I love her! She is like the coolest person ever, so I would like to be in her skin for one day.
Have you ever been to her concert?
No, no I’ve never been [at the same place] as her. But that is one of my goals to get to her concert because I love her. (swooning)
What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Probably a dress.
Do you have a specific dress in mind?
No, but I just realized that I have like maybe 8 or 10 dresses. I never realized that I had that many, so now like, whenever I go to a store I think, “No red dresses.” (laughter)
If you could sit down and have a conversation with 3 people alive or dead, who would they be?
That would be Ayrton Senna the Formula One driver who died. He was such a big inspiration and he was such an amazing athlete so he would be the first one, then probably Princess Diana, and then probably Rihanna.
What is your secret talent?
I’m not sure I have one.
Can you sing?
No, I cannot sing. I can dance a little, I can dance. I like to take pictures in my free time.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
I am sweet, stubborn, and ambitious.
What is the first thing you grab from your refrigerator in the morning?
It would be milk to put in my coffee. I need to have coffee to wake up, otherwise I am not functioning.
What is your favorite TV show?
I am actually watching Grey’s Anatomy right now. I am crazy about it, I’m really hooked on it.
What do you think is your worst quality?
I never really answer texts on time. People that know me, they know not to get upset. I never really answer, so that is my biggest problem, I’m not really disciplined with texting.
What do you think is your best quality?
I give everything to my friends and to the people that I care about. So I am very giving.
If you were stranded on an island and could take one other player and then only 1 thing, the idea is that you are trying to get off the island who would be the player and what would be the thing?
I would take my best friend Ana Ivanovic and we would get a boat! (laughter)
