I came across this article last weekend describing what our faves on the tour wanted to become when they were kids or what they would have tried to become when their tennis careers wouldn't have worked out.
These are the ones that were interviewed about it:
-Justine 2H: journalist preferrably a sport's journalist
-Anastasia : lawyer ("I'd like to prosecute criminals and clean up society"
-Elena (Dementieva) : a dentist (that was what her grandmother would have wanted), Elena would have chosen to become a vet.
-Nadia : a vet
-Mary Pierce : a paediatrician
-Eleni Daniilidou : a doctor
-Martina Hingis : a model ("My height would have been a problem though"
-Karolina Sprem : a model
-Anna Chakvetadze : a popsinger (did you know the girl studies ecology at the university of Moscow?)
-Kim Clijsters : something with children
-Lindsay Davenport : something with children
Others would have chosen sports over anything else :
-Alicia Molik would have tried golf if tennis hadn't worked out.
-Flavia Pennetta : volleyball
-Fran : track & field : 100m
Apparently Amélie Mauresmo and Sveta never thought of anything else than tennis.
