Stars of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, including Elena Dementieva, Nadia Petrova and Ana Ivanovic, recently spoke with us about their favorite things to do while they find themselves back in their hometowns on the weekends. Ranging from nights in watching television with the parents in France to hitting the nightclubs of Monte Carlo, the Tour's players prove they have a wide variety of interests.

"I'm a homebody now," said Florida resident Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who got married last November. "I just hang out with my husband and my dog and we watch movies. It's always at the house. The more time I spend there the better."

Similarly, Ivanovic, who lives in Basel, Switzerland, says that she tends to stay in on the weekends, but with some company. "I'm such a party pooper!" she said. "I enjoy having a nice dinner with friends at my place or their house and just catching up. Not necessarily partying, but staying up late and talking, I like that."

Monte Carlo resident Petrova, on the other hand, seems to spice things up: "It depends - if I practice, I'll probably go to the movies with my friends, go to a restaurant, get together and have a nice cup of coffee with some desert. If I don't have anything to do, I like to go to a nice restaurant, have a cocktail and then go out into a nightclub because I like music, I like the rhythm, I like dancing, and I just love having fun."
