Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2010

Inside the world of ... Bethanie Mattek-Sands

If you were not a tennis player, what would you be?I would probably be a cook. I am good with desserts. My specialty is sweet-potato pie with homemade graham cracker crust. I love cooking.

What music is on your iPod?I have some country (music) on there. Eric Church is probably one of my favourites and Lady Antebellum. I will mix in some eclectic music, but mainly country.

What is your favourite breakfast?Eggs and bacon and sausage – but not on tour, unfortunately! My husband makes scrambled eggs with mushrooms and onions and we eat extra-crispy bacon and sausage.

What is your favourite thing about the Australian Open?Everyone working for the Open has been really nice. From transportation to player services, everyone has done a really good job. As far as Melbourne goes, the shopping here is great. Chapel Street is where I want to go if I have a day off. I went to St. Kilda for dinner and my local friends have been telling me about good places to go.

What is your favourite movie?What’s the one with Will Ferrell? Step Brothers! My husband and I have seen it 25 times. We quote it often. I also love Hitman. It has the best theme music – it is amazing, with a techno-beat throughout the whole movie. I’d want it to be my soundtrack if I was ever on a mission.

What do you do to get away from tennis?My husband and I like to sleep in a lot. I personally like shopping, not always to buy, but to see what’s in and out in fashion. I like to read. I have 3-4 books with me and I read whenever I have the chance. Right now I’m reading The Lone Survivor, an autobiography about a navy seal who was the only surviving member of his team. I think they’re going to make a movie of it.

Do you have any lucky charms or superstitions?I try not to have any, otherwise you can go crazy. Some people use the same shower, same bathroom stall, it all gets too overwhelming. I definitely have my routines but nothing superstitious.

What website do you visit everyday or keep updated with?
Facebook is probably one of my favourites. I don’t update (my profile) a lot, I just see what my friends are up to and look at their photos. I also normally Google everything, like lyrics to songs I hear on the radio to find out their names.

What’s your worst habit?Being late (laughs)! Everyone who knows me should give me an extra 15 (minutes) or half an hour. Even if I say “I promise I’ll be on time”, they should at least give me another 10. I think this comes from me not liking to wait. If I get somewhere early, then I’m waiting. If I get somewhere late, then everyone’s waiting for me so we can immediately go do what we came to do. I’m not very patient.

What was your most memorable holiday?This Christmas, my three younger siblings and my parents came to Phoenix to see our new house. We had Christmas and New Years together, it was a blast! The cactuses had lights on them and we had a lighted snowman. There was a strong Christmas spirit.

Who would you most like to have over for dinner, dead or alive?Brett Favre (American football player for the Minnesota Vikings). Or I’d go out on a date with him! I am a Green Bay fan still, and when Brett retires I’ll be a Green Bay fan. But for now I am rooting for the Vikings. I just love Brett Favre. Adrian Peterson is good and Jared Allen, both are favourites (football players). My husband and I met up with T.O. (Terrell Owens, American football player) while he was here in Melbourne. He’s a big tennis fan and he’s friends with Andy (Roddick). So he was down here to support him

Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2010

they lost to WS in 3 tight sets 4-6 6-4 4-6

for a team who can contest the WS, the future is looking very bright for this pair...if they continue to play.

they came out agressive and fearless, yan really impressive and beth really kept their morale up the entire way.
WS basically served themselves out of trouble most of the time; they really weren't at their top in this match.

Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2010

Nice try Beth . I wonder what her ranking will be after making the QTRs. I'm thinking she could possibly make the top 10 sometime this spring if she keeps this type of form up

Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2010

hopefully Queen Bethanie will have as much singles success this year as she does doubles.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.
