Quick Q & A With Janko Tipsarevic

Janko Tipsarevic has had an exceptional 2011 - he won his first ATP title (he would go on to win two), he broke into the top 10 for the first time, and then he ended the year with a bang by defeating the number 1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Janko was kind enough to take a little time out of his busy schedule to answer some of the questions from the OnTheGoTennis Quick Q & A.  The answers are VERY quick because we corresponded by email, but I hope all the Janko fans will still enjoy it!

You’ve had a phenomenal year, now that the season is coming to a close, what would you consider your favorite moment on the court this year?

I would say that the moment didn't happen on court...It was the moment when I realized that I will finish the season in the top 10.

Now that you are much more in the spotlight, what has been the biggest change for you personally and professionally?

Personally  there were no changes in my life.  Professionally, only the fact that I am aware that I have to work even harder in order to stay where I am or improve.

When did you start wearing sunglasses on the court?

When I was 15, no prescription back then.

In the future do you plan to use your Sports Management degree?

Of course, I would like to stay connected to this sport, on or off the court.  And the fact that I have a finished University in Sports Management is a huge plus.

Music, snowboarding, World of Warcraft and more music.
