When I was 12, every little girl in Russia was trying to wear her hair like mine and playing tennis.
When I play, I feel like in a theatre, why should I look ugly then, because I'm a tennis-player?
Well, I'm playing for the fans so whenever they come and ask for autographs I always try to give it to everybody because I'm out there for the people.
There's time for a boyfriend in my life. But he would have to be understanding. He would have to understand that often I will be travelling and playing.
There are parties and stuff, but I don't go to a lot of them. I just have to go because the sponsors are there, but not to have a crazy time. I'm a normal person. I like to stay at home, watch a little TV if I can.
There are lots of pretty girls. I am a tennis player first of all... if I wasn't producing good results no one would notice me.
People don't get to see the unglamorous side.
It's not really a shorter skirt, I just have longer legs...
I think that tennis is a lady's sport, so we should look out there like ladies.
I just play for fun.
