What event are you in training for at the moment?

I’m in the middle of the French Open at Roland Garros. In the build-up to the tournament I was in serious training for several weeks after the disappointment of losing in the first round of the Australian Open

Who inspired you to take up your sport?

My family, but especially my father, Stefano

Which athlete in your sport do you most admire?

Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras

And in any other sport?

Michael Jordan, because he has achieved so much

What event do you enjoy most in the sporting calendar?

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

What other sports do you play?

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

What was the last book you bought?

A mystery novel

And the last CD?

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. It’s also good to exert yourself physically

At what moment in your life did you realise you were going to make sport your career?

I’ve never known anything different, to be honest. I knew tennis in the womb, probably even before I was born

What food or drink do you most miss when in training?

I love French fries, but I can’t eat them now

What is your favourite TV programme?


What would you like to do once your sporting career comes to an end?

Some normal stuff — for instance, I would like to have a family

What is the pinnacle of your sporting achievement to date?

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

Are today’s sportsmen overpaid?

I think that the baseball and basketball players who just sit on the bench and don’t do anything get too much money

What car do you drive?

I have a Ferrari, but I don’t 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 don’t look forward to

What do you enjoy most about being famous?

Cutting in line — it’s fun always being the first to get anything

What’s your favourite piece of sporting memorabilia?

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 wouldn’t worry about anything else
