Fan questions answered...

The Tour brings you all around the world, but is there any country, city or sight that you haven't seen yet and would really like to visit? - Tom, Netherlands

Ana: I would love to visit the Maldives, but I realize it's unlikely there will be a big tournament there, so it would have to be for a holiday. I'm really looking forward to visiting China for the first time for the Olympics this year. I've read about Chinese history, and I find it an interesting country.

You finally took a set off Justine Henin last week. What is so tough about her game, and what do you think you need to do in order to beat her? - Dion

Ana: She's the best player in the world right now, that's for sure. She doesn't really have any weaknesses. She's very consistent, so she puts you under constant pressure. Having this close match with her in Sydney gave me confidence. The way I was able to compete better was to be aggressive throughout the match, and to finish the points in mid-court or at the net. The most important thing to do is to be more consistent, and I'm really looking forward to playing her again.

I would like to know what advice you could give to younger players like myself, who are dreaming of being a tennis pro? - Ayan, Sweden

Ana: The most important thing is to enjoy your tennis. Only a very small percentage of players can play professionally, so it's also extremely important that you keep everything in good balance - you should not neglect your education. Personally, I think education is very important anyway, even if you become a professional. You should be very disciplined and focused on your tennis, but not to the point where you don't have other interests, and tennis must always be fun. A good balance is very important.

Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

Everyone loves gossip. The biggest gossips in tennis are the coaches and agents. The players themselves don't gossip half as much as them, at least not in my experience. It's no secret that the tennis world isn't the friendliest of places, with a lot of rivalry, but the atmosphere in the women's locker room is actually quite pleasant. Of course, there are some players who keep their heads down, avoid eye contact with anyone and never say "hello", but there will always be someone in there you can have a chat with.

Often I will talk to my opponent before a match, not about tennis but regular stuff like travel stories and our interests. Players are always quick to congratulate one another when they see each other for the first time after one of them has won a tournament, which is obviously very nice to see.

The biggest character in the women's locker has to be Svetlana Kuznetsova – you always know she's in there when you hear loud dance music. I'm friends with her, and also Daniela Hantuchova – her and I are always acting out scenes from TV shows when we see each other in there.

Yesterday the locker room was extremely busy, because there were so many matches taking place. I only had a practice session, so I didn't spend too much time in there.

The facility here is not very spacious. The room is U-shaped, with lockers adjacent to three walls. There are two sizes of locker – the higher ranked get bigger lockers. There's also a stretching area, sofa and a computer. I'll spend a lot more time in there on Tuesday, when I play my first round match!

Love,

Ana
