Dear Marin: Why So Serious?

Posted by gauloises1 on January 20, 2010

Check out this Q&A with Marin from the Australian Open website:

If you were not a tennis player, what would you be?
You mean in the next life? A football player.

What music is on your iPod?
I don’t listen so much the iPod, but I listen to a mix, maybe hip hop and rock.

What is your favourite breakfast?
Bread with jam with and butter.

What is your favourite thing about the Australian Open?
A lot of people and a lot of different cultures mixed. A lot of fans!

What is your favourite movie?
Troy, Lord of the Rings and Braveheart.

What do you do to get away from tennis?

Do you have any lucky charms or superstitions?
Sometimes I use the same shower, but I don’t really believe in that stuff.

What website do you visit every day or keep updated with?
My mail and Croatian newspapers.

What’s your worst habit?
[thinking] My worst one … after practice, I like to sit on the court for another five or 10 minutes and pack up my stuff slowly. When I am travelling, I pack up quick.

Who would you most like to have over for dinner, dead or alive?
That’s a trick question! … Jessica Biel.

He’s just so earnest. I love it! (More than a little reminiscent of Delpo’s during Roland Garros – or is that just me?)

Seriously though … Jessica Biel?

Well … he’s ambitious, I’ll give him that.

    His worst habit is hilarious…and I like that he had to think to come up with it!

    Ha I read that. I was hoping for something really juicy, but then I remembered its Marin. He’s so cute.

    Jessica Biel? For serious, Marin?
