Ana was interviewed by the Gulf News newspaper this week, to coincide with the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships. The following is a transcript:
As a successful tennis player it must be nice to splash out once in a while. What was the latest extravagant purchase you made?
A few months ago I bought a holiday home in Spain. I wouldn’t say it’s extravagant because it’s a good investment.
How long do you spend planning outfits for tournaments and do you test them extensively beforehand?
