I would stick to Queensland, Gold Coast or I would go to Maldives or Fiji.

Who is the most famous person in your phone book?

If you were singing karaoke, what song would you pick?
My coach always says I’d be really good at Lady Gaga but thank God I can’t sing so I wouldn’t sing, probably.

Not really, I’m pretty easy going.

There is no such thing, it’s the Fed Cup. Except when we lose!

Tell us something about Jarka that we don’t know…
I hate to be serious. I laugh a lot, except on court.
