On The Go with Andrea Petkovic 

If you were a hip hop artist, what your rapper name be?
Well, I heard that my rapper name will be "Simba Cherry" because I heard you make your artist name with the name of your first animal, which was Simba, and the maiden name of you mother, which is Cherry.

There is another way to do it where you take your first pet and the name of the first street you lived on.  What would that be?
Simba Uhlmann

Um...that is not as good.
No. (laughter) 

What is your favorite app?
I really like the WTA and ATP app because I’m kind of a tennis nerd, and then Twitter.  That is kind of my addiction, I’m a lot on Twitter.  What I also like is IMBD because I am a film nerd so I can always check all the facts about the movies that I have watched.  These are my three favorites.

Do you have a secret talent?
I don’t.  I would like to draw, that would be my favorite thing to do.  But no, I don’t have a secret talent at all.  I am only good at playing tennis I think. (laughter)

I think that is pretty good.
(Shrugs and smiles)

If you were on a reality show, what would it be called?
"Living with the Petko’s"  (laughter)

And who would be on your show?
My family definitely.  My dad and my mother should already get a whole reality show for themselves, and then I have my little sister.  I think that would be enough for drama and stuff. (laughter)

Who is your ideal drinking buddy?
[Responds very quickly] Ryan Gosling.  Definitely.  I just think he is so awesome.

If you could have any actor play you in your life story, who would it be?
Well my all time favorite actress is Penelope Cruise.  I just think she is absolutely beautiful and I love her movies.  So I think Penelope Cruise and I also really like Natalie Portman.  Both don’t fit my type because both are tiny and little but they would have to gain some muscles to play me. (laughter)

How do you like your eggs?

Rate yourself on a scale from 1 -10 how weird you are.
I think everybody thinks they are pretty weird, and then in the end they aren’t really, but I would give myself a strong 7! (laughter)

If you could have a room full of anything, what would it be?
I would like to have a room full of pancakes with Nutella.  You have to take the American pancake because in Europe they make them really thin, which is also good, but, you have to take the American pancake and combine it with the European Nutella and it’s perfect.

What side of the bed do you sleep on?
I change.  When I sleep alone in the bed I always sleep like (makes hand gestures)....

Yes, diagonal just to use up all the space.

What position do you go to sleep in?
Stomach, spread wide.  (laughter)

Have you ever seen a UFO or a ghost?
I haven’t no, unfortunately.

Do you believe in either?
No.  (laughter)  I believe in some kind of strange energies, but ghosts.....not really.  Maybe one time I will see one.

Me:  I hope not.

Andrea:  I hope not too.
