I guess people are sending in the same questions to both the Times and Herald Sun… anyway, here’s Saturday’s Q&A.

What did you say to Fernando at the end of your match, and does it rank as one of your toughest wins? Jim, Suffolk

RN: We just spoke about the match and about how great a tournament he had, how difficult the match was and how we both deserved to win. This was definitely one of the toughest wins of my career.

What is your favourite dessert, ice cream or lolly? Camilla, Sydney

RN: Ice cream. Vanilla ice cream with cookies.

I really love how you move on the court, almost as if you are dancing. Have you ever tried dancing? Reyes, Alicante.

RN: No, never. I mean, yes, I dance when I go out with my friends but that’s it.

Do you hear the click of the photographers who are on court when you’re playing?

RN: Yes, a lot. We are used to it.

Serving aces is a big part of being a top tennis player, is this something that you are targeting in your play to take some of the strain out of matches? Nicholas Boyle, London

RN: I try to serve better always. At least in a smart way. That doesn’t mean harder, if you know what I mean.

When you are playing at a tournament, how much do you follow the results of other matches? Do you like to know how well the other top players are playing? Claire, Sussex

RN: I do like to follow all the results. This is my life and my work and want to be informed.

How much water do you have to drink the night before a match to make sure you are properly hydrated? Beth

RN: Not that much. I do it during and after the match but not at night.

Erm. The submitted question was about how much he had to drink the day before and day of a match. Not the night before. I mean, the guy needs his sleep and can’t spend the night taking trips to the bathroom.

When you go to the movies do you eat popcorn or something else? Brandy, Memphis

RN: I LOVE sweet popcorn. You know which one I mean? Not the salty one, the sweet one. Too good to be true.

I’m guessing he means caramel corn?

    In the last one he’s refering to this: http://lacasadelasgolosinas.com/images/palocoloweb.jpg

    I don’t know if it’s exactly like caramel corn, they’re called “palomitas dulces”. Again, he translated it literally xD

    He has an enormous sweet tooth :D

    It sure doesn’t look like caramel corn! Thanks for the info, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that in the US.
