True; but Nicole was very cool and mature on the BBC World
news show "HARD TALK" on their special feature about
young tennis stars from the Boliterri Academy during the
week of the Australian Open 2005. The reporter gave very
hard questions, while going out of his way to be very friendly
and gentle with a young Afro-American player the same age
as her during the interview.
Personally...I don't think they liked her much. Example of
the questions they gave Nicole..
"Don't you think in a way your deceiving yourself if you
imagine to be a #1 player and champion tennis player at
this young age? You say it's a dream; but aren't you really
simply deluding yourself for something that may never
I'm not joking this is the type of question Nicole got!
The other young guy got this question..
"So, tell me how Tiger Woods and Serena Williams are
your role models?"
