Between the lines - Angelique Kerber

Angelique Kerber defeated Lucie Hradecka in her first round match.
by Josh Blagden
Tuesday 26 June 2012

In the first of our series of Q&As, Angelique Kerber talks beaches, books, and Pitbull...

Q: If you weren’t a professional tennis player, what would you be?
AK: That’s a good question, but it’s always been my dream (to be a tennis player) since I was a child so there’s been no plan B.

Q: What do you eat for breakfast on the day of a match?
AK: For breakfast, I eat Muesli with some fruit, and sometimes scrambled eggs with some bread.

Q: Where is your favourite holiday destination?
AK: The Maldives.

Q: What do you like to do on holiday?
AK: I like to relax on the beach with a book and enjoy chilling out doing nothing.

Q: What is the most played song on your mp3 player at the moment?
AK: At the moment anything by Pitbull.

Q: Would you sing that at karaoke?
AK: No (laughs). Not really, I don’t like to sing at karaoke.

Q: If you could meet anyone past or present, who would it be?
AK: I’ve actually never met Steffi Graf before, so maybe I hope to meet her at Wimbledon this year.

Q: What’s your favourite sport besides tennis?
AK: Swimming.

Q: Who did you idolise growing up?
AK: Steffi Graf.

Q: Do you have any hidden talents we don’t know about? For example, can you fold your tongue?
AK: Ermm, no, not really.

Q: If you could learn a new talent, what it would be?
AK: Cooking for sure, I can’t cook so I need to improve.

20:08It brings me no pleasure but it's time to bring the curtain down for another year. Seemed somehow appropriate to leave the last word to Roger Federer. Thanks a billion for reading. What a fortnight, what a final, fast forward to 2015 please...

20:03"I already have seven. It's not like I need another one. But it would have been awfully nice to have it. I think that's what the feeling was of the people, and I felt that... I know they love tennis. They love tennis after we're all gone."
