After delivering a monologue chiding the tennis press for asking boring questions at press conferences, world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki told the media to ask her anything. And ask they did. Here are the seven best questions and answers from Wozniacki's epic Australian Open press conference:
7. The American media strikes again.
Q. So where did you hear that your press conferences were dull?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, I heard that the American media said to the Danish media that they would like to get to know me better, but I always answer the same questions. So, you know, I just think when I get the questions, I answer what I can answer.
If they ask me about the match, I cannot really say that, you know, I like eating bananas. I try really to do my best here.
6. So you'd ask generic questions and expect generic responses? How ironic.
Q. If you could sit here and ask any player any question, what would you ask?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Depends on the player. I know them so well. I could put some of them on the spot, but I wouldn't like to do that.
5. "Just hit it back to you? That I can do."
Q. How did you go at the cricket yesterday?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, actually, that was a lot of fun. I met two of the guys there, Finch and Peter Siddle. They're really great guys. They taught me how to throw and how to hit the ball, so that was quite fun.
4. Like this one?
Q. Are you generally annoyed about the questions about being No. 1?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: You know, I got used to them. I feel like I deserve to be there. I've done so well last year, and hopefully I can continue my roll this year. I know that you guys have to write about something, and that's a pretty good question to ask.
3. "Except, of course, for comments about how boring I am."
Q. How much do you read about yourself in the media?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Honestly, I don't really read about myself. I look at the pictures sometimes. Sometimes I'm looking at them and I'm thinking, They could choose some better ones.
2. There goes any potential endorsement deals with Pantene.
Q: How should we solve global warming?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Global warming? I'm flying quite a bit, so that doesn't really help (laughter).
Uhm, go green. Make cars that don't use so much gas. Make them electric. That would already help. Use the buses, the trains, instead of taking the car. You know, just a few things. When you take a shower, don't stay there for half an hour. Two minutes is enough. Even the girls.
1. All right, who let Todd Woodbridge into the press conference?
Q. When are you going to get married and how many kids are you going to have?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: First I have to find a guy.
