Happiness is thin-crust pizza for Jarmila Gajdosova
In the Pro's Questionnaire, our favorite sports figures take our abridged version of the most famous personality test, the Proust Questionnaire. WTA player Jarmila Gajdosova, currently ranked 30th in the world, is up next. The 24-year-old Aussie discusses her love of pizza, her desire to sing and her weakness for accessories.
Your main fault:
Jarmila Gajdosova: I think I have a lot of them! Sometimes I can be too nice, or too open, I guess.
Your idea of happiness:
JG: Being around people who make me happy, and who love and care about me. And doing what I love to do. So that's playing tennis, traveling and having my family with me.
Your idea of misery:
JG: Something bad happening to someone you care about. And because of my job and what I love to do, an injury that would prevent me from playing again.
If not yourself, who would you want to be?
JG: I would love to be a singer. Having a voice like Leona Lewis would be amazing.
Your favorite food/drink:
JG: That's easy: thin-crust pepperoni-and-mushroom pizza and Diet Coke!
Hero/heroine you admire most:
JG: In tennis, I would say Monica Seles. If not, I would say family, because of all their help and support, and everything they've given up for me.
What you hate most:
JG: People who play games and lie.
The natural talent you'd like to be gifted with:
JG: I would love to be able to sing or dance -- either of them. I have no talent in those areas!
Your greatest fear:
JG: Spiders, bugs, cockroaches ...
Your greatest extravagance:
JG: Handbags and shoes, definitely.
Your most treasured possession:
JG: I don't think there's really one main thing I keep with me, given I travel so much, but I do collect those Me to You bears, the gray ones with the blue nose. You can buy them for any occasion, saying pretty much whatever you want. So if I had to say one thing that I would take on my travels, one of those would be it!
Your present state of mind:
JG: Somewhere in the middle range of emotions, but with an optimistic slant.
