Yaroslava Shvedova envisions Vania King as an ordinary street vendor

Sweet answers, from Slava this time, as she focuses more around her immediate experiences than most known players:

Quote:
Which tennis player…

Would make the funniest tour guide on a sightseeing bus?
Novak Djokovic.

Would have the best insider shopping tips?
It would have to be Serena.

Do you trust most to get you around the city on the Subway?
Me, haha. I had a situation in Moscow with my doubles partner Vania King. She had never been on the subway and was super scared to go. I took her and told her, ‘let’s go, you have to see the subway because it’s incredible. It’s like a museum.’

Would you go to for a restaurant recommendation?
It’s hard to say, because pretty much everyone knows what they want.

Would be the best talk show host?
Serena. She’s easygoing and easy talking, so I can just see her on TV.

Would be most interested in visiting the city’s museums?
I love it. I always want to learn about new things. Usually when we go, it’s with someone through the tennis event so I don’t know who would be interested in it doing it themselves.

Is next to enter the candy advertising business after Federer and Sharapova?
In general, I would say the doubles players because we’re crazy about sweets.

Would invite you to go to the Central Park Zoo?
Akgul Amanmuradova would go with me because she likes giraffes. Her nickname is Giraffe and she gets a bunch of giraffes for presents.

Would you buy a hot dog from on the street?
Probably from Vania. But knowing her, she might put something in it that’s not supposed to be there (laughter).

She's such a good-humored person.
