What is your passion outside of tennis?
Well I like to do a lot with my friends at home, especially being at home and spending a lot of time with my family and friends, especially with my little nephew. He is just a year-and-a-half so it’s pretty nice spending a lot of time with him. I didn’t have that much time in the last two months, but when I get home I always spend a lot of time with him.
What is something that annoys you?
I like to spend a lot of time with people where I know they are honest and saying the truth and being straight. So, I don’t like when people are coming to me and they are not straight and not telling me what they really think, and then behind the back it is different. So that is what really annoys me.

I've actually never liked sports, and I never understood how I became an athlete. I don't like working out. I don't like anything that has to do with working physically.

I'm not that kind of girl.
