Up close and personal with Dominika Cibulkova

Here at Rolandgarros.com we know you love to get an insight into the real person behind the tennis star facade. Here, Dominika Cibulkova reveals her love for Slovakian sausages, skiing and waterskiing.
When did you last crack up laughing?
After the match point against Agnes Szavay (6-2 6-4). I felt like laughing and crying at the same time. It was probably just nerves.
Tell us a good film you’ve seen recently.
Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt.
Which actress would you choose to play you on screen?
Scarlett Johansson.
Who is your sporting idol?
Lance Armstrong.
What’s your favourite sport outside tennis?
Skiing and waterskiing.
What’s your favourite thing for breakfast?
Slovakian sausages. Unfortunately I have to make myself eat healthier things, like muesli.
What’s your least favourite training exercise?
Talking tactics. It drives me mad!
Which part of your game would you like to improve?
My nerves at important points. I’d like to be more relaxed and calm when finishing off matches.
What’s your favourite website?
Facebook, to keep in touch with my friends.
What’s the last thing you do before going to sleep?
I send some text messages to my friends.
What puts you in a bad mood?
Negative people.
Do you have any diva-like demands?
No, I’ve never acted like a diva. I’m too grounded for that.
What do you have on your iPod?
Kanye West and a lot of hip hop music.

What’s your favourite song right now?
Let it Rock by Kevin Rudolf and Lil Wayne.
Who’s your ideal mixed doubles partner?
Gael Monfils because I really enjoyed playing with him in last year’s Roland Garros. But my most memorable mixed doubles experience was with Dominik Hrbatý when we won the Hopman Cup for Slovakia.
What’s the worst thing that could happen to you before a match?
That I leave my rackets at the hotel or get some bad news about my family.
When was your first kiss?
I must have been 14 and it was at a tennis tournament in Slovakia. I can’t remember his name though.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009
