Something Completely Different, Part VI
Sabine Lisicki

Press conferences are excellent for finding out how a player felt they did in their match, their form and what they think of their next opponent - but what about all of those completely unrelated questions? Here is the first of many random questions posed to several of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour's brightest stars.

Did you ever play a musical instrument?

Aleksandra Wozniak: Yes, I played the guitar and piano when I was younger.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands: I was forced to play piano when I was younger. I can still play a little bit, but I haven't in years. The only reason I kept playing was because I had to be better than my sister in everything. She's in university for musical engineering now - so I'll give her this one. Maybe I'll learn the drums...

Michaella Krajicek: Yes! When I was little I used to play the flute.

Elena Dementieva: I always wanted to play piano, but I'm not talented enough for it :) I bought an electric piano once. I've been trying to learn how to play but it's embarrassing!

Nadia Petrova: No, but I wish I could play piano. My coach plays and it's just so beautiful and relaxing.

Caroline Wozniacki: I did. I played piano for four years when I was younger. Now I've forgotten how to play, but I want to learn again.

Patty Schnyder: I played the piano for many years as a kid. I had weekly lessons and was practicing a lot. I had a great teacher who made me play everything, not just classical. I always wanted to learn new pieces.

Sabine Lisicki: I played piano and was in the choir, too. I haven't played piano in years, sometimes I miss it. My days are just so busy now, though, so there's not much space for other things. And there's not always a piano around.

Vania King: I took piano lessons when I was younger, and singing lessons too. I still sing for fun.

Marion Bartoli: I played the clarinet when I was at school, and a bit of piano when I was younger. My dad wanted me to play sports and my mom wanted me to do piano and classical dance. I was doing it all but I didn't have any minutes free. It was a great experience, though, I loved all of it.

Something Completely Different... Part V: Favorite board game?
Something Completely Different... Part IV: Any pets?
Something Completely Different... Part III: Kim's comeback?
Something Completely Different... Part II: Are you a gamer?
Something Completely Different... Part I: Favorite men's player?
