2) Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them?

monica seles was my 1st tennis playing idol, since then simon, chakvetadze, del potro and pierce have all become my faves.

monica was such a great competitor, i couldn't help but root for her. i love del potros clean ball striking, chakvetadze is such a clean hitter to and when playing well can make power hitters look stupid. simon is fun to watch when counter-punching and is smoking hot, pierce was the best 'ball basher' i've ever seen.

tori amos - josephine
alanis morissette - not as we

4) What is your philosophy of life in general?

just to be the best person i can be. to try not to get wrapped up in the bad things in my life and concentrate on the good.

5) What are your best and worst traits?

my best and worst trait are the same thing, i cant say no to people. if people ask me to do things, i will to the detriment of myself sometimes, always try to do it for them. i sometimes lose myself because im so busy trying to please others.

6) If you had to reccomend a book(s) and a movie(s) to other people, which would they be?

to my father - 'i know what it means to be made of you, but never enough for you'

12) What is that you most love and hate?

well tennis is a love and passion and always has been. music is a very big part of my life and i love songs with meaningful lyrics (hence my list of songs).
i hate that everyone doesn't have an equal chance in life.
after reading that i feel like i was in a happier place than i am right now. i have been doubting who i am, and what i want from life a lot lately.
