Sony Ericsson Open - Day 7

Hantuchova talks Mozart, Adele and golf


Daniela Hantuchova tells The Tennis Space how she relaxes away from tennis.

By playing the piano
“I went to a musical school for eight years where most of the stuff I had to play was classical piano – a lot of things from Beethoven, Mozart and Bach. At the moment I’m into Adele’s song, Someone Like You, which I’m trying to learn. I love playing the piano as it takes my mind away from everything. It’s a great way for me to relax.”

On the golf course
“I love playing golf. It’s coming along quite well, thanks to my very good friend Sergio Garcia, who has given me great tips to improve my game. That has helped and I’m playing much better now, thanks to him. I love getting away from tennis and playing nine holes from time to time. Obviously I don’t have enough time to have a proper handicap, but I got a hole in one once in Perth, when I was there for the Hopman Cup. That was awesome.”
