Do not disrespect Julia Goerges
In the Pro's Questionnaire, our favorite sports figures take our abridged version of the most famous personality test, the Proust Questionnaire. WTA player Julia Goerges, currently ranked No. 20 in the world, is up next. The 22-year old German talks about the importance of family, her desire to sing and why she's afraid of fire.
Your main fault:
Julia Goerges: My main fault is that sometimes I think too much about a lot of things at the same time.
Your idea of happiness:
JG: Being together with my family and especially my nephew.
Your idea of misery:
JG: When my family is not feeling good and I know that I'm not at home and can't help them. It makes me really sad.
If not yourself, who would you want to be?
JG: I really love to sing, and it would be nice if I could be a singer, but honestly, I'm not really talented in that. But that would be something I would love to be.
Your favorite food/drink:
JG: I love juices -- pineapple, orange, apricot -- which I mostly mix with sparkling water. I love pizza and pasta, but we also have a special food -- croque -- which is an oven baked baguette and you can decide what you put on it, like salad, cheese, mayonnaise, whatever you like.
Hero/heroine you admire most:
JG: Martina Hingis.
What you hate most:
JG: Disrespectful people. I think you should treat people always with respect.
The natural talent you'd like to be gifted with:
JG: To be a good singer and to play good soccer!
Your greatest fear:
JG: Anything to do with fire. Ten years ago there was a big fire next to our house. The house next door exploded and all the pieces fell onto our house. So it was almost close to death for my mum and me. That was a big thing and from that point on I don't really like fire.
Your greatest extravagance:
JG: After Stuttgart I bought a big Louis Vuitton bag!
Your most treasured possession:
JG: I would say my necklace. I got it from my parents and my grandmother, who had already died. And some months after she passed away, my mother gave me this necklace and said it is from them [my parents] and my grandmother together, so it means a lot to me.
Your present state of mind:
JG: I think I can be pretty satisfied with my life and my season so far. Being here [Bad Gastein] with my family and spending a lot of time with them makes me happy!
