Anne Keothavong viewing career as professional kickboxer once she's done with tennis!

Unusual choice but I suppose good luck to her if she follows it up. This is from her LTA profile page : http://www.lta.org.uk/Performance/To...havongAnne.htm

Personal: Has two brothers and a sister. Older brother James is a professional umpire, younger sister Lena is at university, younger brother Mark at school. All siblings play tennis. Anne’s parents (mother, Vathana, and father, Somsak) don't play despite introducing their children to the game. Grew up playing park tennis at Hackney Downs Park and Highbury Fields (“I still do but when the park keeper is there he never likes to give us courts to play on now because we're not his regulars!”). Loves kickboxing and would like to train and compete in tournaments once tennis career is over. Also enjoys Tae Kwon Do and Karate, listening to music (favourite bands are Coldplay and Snow Patrol). Says she is “obsessed with watching cooking and food programmes even though I can’t cook myself!” and that she reads too many girly books. Likes to shop but “I don’t have enough money to buy the things I want!”

She's around #150 in rankings and 23 yr old. Don't believe she'll ever crack top 100, so why not go for it as kickboxer.

Well since she's getting her ass kicked on the tennis court, it's nice to hear that she might at some time kick back.

Maybe Anne could use it to intimidate her opponents and win lots of matches and titles. She won her first match today which is a good start!

I think Anne has the game to be a top 100 player...however it's kind of mental with her I think.
