What has been your best moment on a tennis court?
That has to be winning Wimbledon. It was a childhood dream and my family and coaches were there and hence climbing the stand to embrace them
And your worst?
Losing my second Australian Open Final in a 5-set thriller!
If you weren’t a tennis player, what would you be?
I would have loved to have been an Aussie Rules footballer. I am still an avid fan. Go Hawks!
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you have given yourself when your career started?
Probably technique. I wish I could have implemented some of the things I know now…but who knows if that would have led to more victories.
Singles or doubles, which do you prefer?
I love watching doubles as it is so fast and the reaction times are incredible. I preferred playing singles. I could exploit my fitness as a young player and cover the expanse of the court.
Which is your favourite court to play on?
Must be Centre Court Wimbledon. The history of the place is incredible and for personal reasons, it changed my life.
Who are you rooting for at Wimbledon this year … are you allowed to say?
I am coaching the No.1 Chinese female player Wang Qiang, so obviously her. However, I prefer just enjoying the tennis and not have a ‘favourite’ makes it easier to commentate.
