Entries in BNP Paribas Open (43)


Fast Five With Karolina Pliskova

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!

Fast Five With Gilles Simon

We caught up with Gilles right after his win over Michael Berrer in Indian Wells.  He had just finished a series of interviews in French and greeted us with an “I’m so happy to answer questions in English!”

What is your favorite cell phone application?  It’s not easy but I would say because of my son, Candy Crush. I tried to erase it from my phone but he said “Daddy, I want to play the game with the sweets” so I turned it back on.

Can you describe yourself in 3 words?  This is also not easy (pauses). I would say honest, talented and an idiot (as confirmed by my coach).

If you could switch places for one day with any person who would it be and why? The French President of the Republic, just to see how it would be in the office.

What is your most embarrassing moment? Oh I’ve had a lot, on the court, outside of the court but one day on court in Cincinnati, I felt really alone because I throw my racket and the racket bounces and went over the fence and then someone had to go all the way around to get it and I had to wait 5 minutes and I felt very alone because everyone was watching me.


Facebook or Twitter:  Twitter

Books or Movies: Movies

Ocean or Mountains: Ocean

Morning or Night: Night

Beer or Wine: Beer (didn’t see that one coming!)

Spicy or Mild: Mild

Beyonce or Rihanna: Beyonce

Fast Five With Tommy Robredo

What’s your favorite cell phone app right now?

Have you ever heard the term binge-watching?
A guy watching me?

No! (laughing). It’s when you watch a TV show for several hours at a time.
No, I never heard and I don’t do it (laughing). 

How do you keep yourself entertained on the tour?
Well, I talk with some people, go to dinner, and phone my home and my friends. I WhatsApp with them. I try to do different things.

Hot or Not? Roger Federer's Polka Dots

Roger Federer is, in general, the epitome of style and grace. But sometimes, like all of us, he makes some "interesting" choices.  Now, I understand that you must take risks in the name of fashion, but I have to admit that I'm really not feeling his polka dot shirt he rocked in one of his pressers.  I do think his girls look fab in them.

Fast Five With Samantha Stosur

What’s your favorite cell phone app right now?
I just seem to be using the WhatsApp one a lot and the Go Pro App. 

What’s that? 
You can link your camera and sync it through WiFi. 

Have you ever heard the term binge-watching? 

It’s when you watch a show for several hours at a time. 
I haven’t done that.

If you weren’t a tennis player, what would be your dream career?
It would be something in another sport for sure. Ever since I can remember, I love playing sports, no matter what it was, I just wanted to be part of it, at school or with my brothers. I guess I wanted to be a tennis player from such a young age, I never gave myself a chance to do anything else. It would be something in sport.

Whose Shoes Are Those Anyway?

Updated on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 1:01AM by Registered Commenter[OnTheGoTennis]

We love to test your knowledge of your favorite players here at OnTheGoTennis, and today we are going to find out if you can match the ATP tennis player to his shoes!  Some are much easier than others (I'm looking at you Rafa and Fed) but some are a tad difficult. Look for clues such as a racket or socks; even paying attention to the shape of the leg helps!  We'll post the answers next week.  Enjoy!

What is your favorite cell phone app?
