Catching Up With Varvara Lepchenko 

Image from Varvara's Facebook Page

We caught up with American tennis player Varvara Lepchenko at the Sony Open as she was cooling down after her 2:59 hour match against Tomljanovic.  Enjoy!

If you could only have 1 meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ice cream.

What is one thing that you would change about yourself?
I wouldn’t change anything.

What is one of your best quality?
This is not a question to me.  You should ask my team. (With some prodding) I am a kind person.  I let people get into matches (laughing…she led 5-2 in the 3rd set and finally won it in a tiebreak).

What is the last gift you gave someone? 
A hat for my fitness coach. (Laughing)

Last gift you received?
A phone charger from my physio. (Answer helpfully given by a member of her team as she was stumped).  A phone case and a charger.  My phone kept dying all the time.

If I came to your house for dinner, what would you cook me?
I would make you some good steaks and stir fry. 

What is the biggest misconception people have about you?
That I’m a very serious person but I’m not (team laughs).

What is the strangest thing you've ever eaten?
Frog legs.  I had it in China. 

Not in France? 
No, in China.  I had some kind of bugs. It was fried and had some toppings.  It was actually good.
