Happy Friday The 13th From The WTA

Who likes scary movies? Whose lamp keeps turning on and off by itself? Ana Ivanovic, Sloane Stephens and more weigh in on one of the spookiest days of the year...

BIRMINGHAM, England - The quaint, tranquil Edgbaston Priory Club - hardly the setting to talk about Friday the 13th. But then again, Camp Crystal Lake was pretty quaint and tranquil too, wasn't it?

With the only Friday the 13th of 2014 upon us, we thought we'd ask the WTA stars about their favorite scary movies, pranks and so on - you've probably already listened to Ana Ivanovic's tale of terror, so here are a few more from her fellow competitors at the Edgbaston Priory Club... muhahahaha...

Barbora Zahlavova Strycova
On the scariest prank anyone has ever pulled on her...

"Well one time we were in this dark room and playing that game where the ghost will come, and it was really scary, and I heard some noises and felt like something was touching me! And I thought it was my friend. And, actually, it ended up being my friend. But it was still really, really scary."

On whether she still believes in ghosts...
"... yes, I do."

On her favorite scary movie...
"I don't watch scary movies at all, because I get really scared, especially if I'm alone!"

Kimiko Date-Krumm
On her favorite scary movie...

"I remember watching Friday the 13th, and since then I don't watch them anymore! It's too scary. I can't even listen to music from scary movies. I don't want to listen, and I don't want to see!"

Sloane Stephens
On her favorite scary movie...

"I don't watch scary movies because they're scary!"

On whether she has ever pulled any scary pranks on anyone...
"I don't prank anyone because I wouldn't want anyone to prank me - I just do to others as I would like done to myself! So I'm not a prankster."

Casey Dellacqua
On whether she watches scary movies...

"I don't particularly watch scary films anymore - I'm a bit more into children's movies and stuff like that at the moment! But I remember when I was growing up we would always watch the Scream movies - we'd watch them over and over again, actually. But I'm not really into scary movies anymore now."

Werewolf fact: if you're in the Eastern Time Zone, there will be a full moon tonight, and a rare one as well - there hasn't been one like it since 2000, and there won't be another one like it until 2049.

And finally, here's a look at what might happen when it gets close to midnight...
