Former world #1 Caroline Wozniacki holds not only 18 WTA Tour titles but also a great sense of humor. During the Sony Ericsson Open, the 21-year-old Dane cheerfully chatted with me about her most memorable moments on court, the best part of being a tennis player, her aspirations to be an actress, her biggest fear,  and the three tennis players she would most want to party with.

What is your most memorable moment on court?

I’ve had a lot. I think reaching the #1 ranking for the ranking and what happened in Beijing was definitely a big moment for me. Or lifting up my first trophy – or any trophy. Or walking into the opening ceremony of the Olympics was huge as well.

What is the best part of being a pro tennis player?

To travel the world and get to meet new people and get to experience things that others maybe never experience, which is great.

If you weren’t a tennis player, what would you be?

I would like to be an actress – I think that would be quite fun. Always, when we had plays in school, I wanted to be in there. I had the leading role quite a few times, which is cool.

How old were you when you did that?

I can’t remember. (Smiles) I think it was all from 9 to 14 years old. I remember I was Sandy in Grease as well, so I had to sing and I’m a terrible singer. I wasn’t shy I just sang. (Laughs)

If you could play against any player in history, who would it be any why?

That’s a tough one because I would Martina Hingis, but I’ve played her before. She was my role model growing up.

If you’re hosting a party, what three tennis players do you invite?

I would invite Serena [Williams] – she would have to bring her Karoake. (Laughs) I would bring Agnieszka Radwanska and maybe someone like … of the guys … maybe someone like Rafa [Nadal].

Which actress would you like to play you of a movie of yourself?

Maybe Cameron Diaz or Scarlett Johansson.

They have your likeness.

I don’t know, maybe. I would like to think that. (Smiles)

What are two things you couldn’t live without?

My mobile phone and … (Shyly) maybe some chocolate once in a while. (Smiles)

What is one thing that scares you?

Spiders. And I’m a bit afraid of the dark, especially if I have to walk outside when it’s dark, I don’t like it. (Laughs)
