my it's my charity it's amazing we do a

lot of work how do you celebrate your

wins you know after 12 or 13 or 14 you

kind of stuff how do you deal with your

losses not very well how do you deal

with the haters who listens to haters

you could redo one match which would it

be um any of them that I've lost besides

tennis what's one thing that you'd like

to be remembered for my charitable works

you know I do a lot of stuff locally but

also around the globe I've done a lot of

stuff as well if you weren't a tennis

pro what would you be doing with your

life I would be a fashion designer

Indian Rules Cincinnati Stanford

Singapore Championships okay do you have

any match rituals um I always wash my

hands before to make sure they're really

nice and dry so I can grip that racket

tight enough besides you obviously who

was the greatest tennis player of all

time oh my gosh um Steffi Roger Federer

like yeah what skill would you steal

from which opponent oh right now I would

definitely take Melo's brownej serve so

Sarina I took your masterclass which was

amazing mm-hmm what is one thing in

tennis that you have not mastered well

I'm still a student of tennis I'm still

every time I'm out there I try to learn

something new can you demonstrate for me

the most difficult thing move technique

in tennis really yes really um I don't

have a racket so I'm just having to have

over here so my gosh all righty

let's do this all right you know all

right so I think it's really difficult

at a drop shot because a lot of the

players now are really fast and they get

to the ball easy and you have to have a

lot of disguise on the shots

so if you're doing off the forehand you

wind up like you're going to hit a great

forehand and then at the last minute you

drop it and it goes barely over the net

and it leaves your opponent stumbling

that is so incredible

if the sport required a small victory

dance after every match what would you


gosh you know you can merely rock on any

block you know you can probably do a

little twerking maybe a little body roll

so it just kind of depends Sarina what's

give a lesson to Emma Stone okay what's

the best advice your parents ever gave

humility what's the stupidest thing

you've ever done

me what that is but it's dangerous okay

what's one thing about you that people

would be surprised to know but I'm

really silly and I can't stay focused

for too long
