We caught up with Karolina in the BNP Paribas Player's Lounge last week and ended up asking her a few more than 5 questions but she kindly obliged.
What’s your favorite cell phone app right now? WhatsApp. All the time online. (Laughing)
Have you ever heard the term binge watch? No. I’m not watching any shows.
How do you keep yourself entertained on the tour? I still have to practice every day even if I don’t have matches. So, the whole day I’m in the club and then in the evening I have my coach and my fitness coach here. We have a really good relationship, so we go to dinner and shopping.
What’s the last thing you bought? In Prague, I bought a lot of clothes.
If you weren’t a tennis player, what would be your dream career? I have no idea. I played from 4 years and I wasn’t really thinking about anything else. Now that I’m playing quite good, I’m not even thinking about anything else. Maybe once I will do something else. I didn’t have the chance to do anything else, so I don’t really know.
Describe yourself in 3 words. A lot people say I’m pragmatic but it’s not true. I’m getting mad on the court, but I’m not crushing racquets anymore.
What would your friends say? They all say I’m friendly. Not a conflict person.
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter. I don’t have Facebook at all.
Coke or Pepsi: Coke
Shower or Bath: Shower
Ocean or Mountain: Ocean
Sweet or Salty: Sweet
Dog or Cat: Dog. I’m allergic to cats!
