Obviously all the Grand Slam events, but I prefer the US Open just because itís staged in my country

I like football and I play a bit of ping-pong

What was the last book you bought?

A mystery novel

It was the latest album from Eve, an American female rapper

Would you recommend a life of sport to your children?

Definitely. I think that sport is art and a way of expressing yourself. Itís also good to exert yourself physically

Winning a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, and, of course, my three Grand Slam titles ó two Australian Open victories and one at the French

Are todayís sportsmen overpaid?

I think that the baseball and basketball players who just sit on the bench and donít do anything get too much money

I have a Ferrari, but I donít drive it much

Do you have a nickname?

Not that I know of

What bugs you most about being famous?

Dealing with the press is the bit I donít look forward to

Cutting in line ó itís fun always being the first to get anything

My gold medal

If your house was on fire, what one item would you take with you as you dashed to safety?

My family. I wouldnít worry about anything else

"Friends" is her fav TV show. Is Jenn still with Mathew Perry? I haven't heard anything about the two of them for a while. Tough loss today Jenn, you'll be back on top real soon.
