On The Go with Juan Monaco

If you read this blog, you know that Juan (Pico) Monaco is one of my favorite people to interview.  He is funny, genuine, and he gives me a good ab workout because he makes me laugh so much.  So without further is our interview with Pico at the 2013 Western and Southern Open.  Enjoy!

What is your screen saver on you phone?
I’ll show you, you’ll see.  My soccer team! [Estudiantes de La Plata].  

What is your rapper name?
Easy....DJ Pico!  I think it sounds good.

I think you should change your Twitter handle to DJ Pico.
Really?  Ok. (laughter)

What is your favorite app?
Many.  The ATP live score! [He says because Fabrizio one of the ATP PR managers is with us.]

OTGT:  Oh stop! (laughter)

Pico:  Ok, I have to think.....  Candy Crush.

Ohhh!  [I love Candy Crush] What level are you on? 


OTGT: You’re past me!

Pico:  Where are you?

OTGT:  I’m on 302.

Pico:  Once you get on 311, (makes hand gesture like it is easy) you don’t want to play anymore.  Also Twitter, WhatsApp, and Facebook.  

How often do you play Candy Crush?
Everyday.  When I go to bed, the last thing I do in my day is play Candy Crush.  All the time.

If you were on a reality show, what would it be called?
The Pico Club Show! Or maybe the The Pico Show; that is easier.

Who would be on your show?
Soccer players, Rafa, Andy Murray.  Guys who like soccer, let me think....Fognini, Ferrer, and of course, Messi, Ronaldo, Rooney, and Neymar.

Who is your ideal drinking buddy?
Bono, the U2 singer, or Robert DeNiro.

OTGT:  If you could have any actor play you in your life story, who would it be?

Fabrizio:  I know, Benecio del Toro! (laughter)

Pico:   Or [Javier] Bardem, a Latin one!  For sure.

How do you like your eggs?
In an omlet.

Rate yourself on a scale from 1 -10 how weird you are.
I’m not that weird.  Let’s say maybe 2 or 3.

That’s kinda boring!
Why boring?

I’m just joking.
Ok. (laughter)

If you could have a room full of anything, what would it be?
Barbecue steaks, and a soccer match.

What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right side.

What position do you go to sleep in?
Chest down.

What color is your toothbrush?

Fabrizio:  Pink!  (laughter)

Have you ever seen a UFO or a ghost?

Do you believe in either of those things?

What is the dumbest thing you’ve ever read about yourself?
Things that the press make [up] about me and my girlfriend or about girls or whatever in Argentina that are not true.  Many, many, many stories.

That’s it!  That’s all I’ve got for you this time.
That’s it!?!  (laughter)

Until next time Pico.....
