Video Quiz: WTA Top 8 Stars
The top eight seeded players in the WTA event in Indian Wells "suffered" the same fate as their ATP peers at the tournament's all-access media hour. On hand: Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Sara Errani, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber, Petra Kvitova, Samantha Stosur, and Caroline Wozniacki. See here the responses given to queries about their peers:
Perhaps the questions weren't particularly engaging, but Kvitova, Azarenka, and Wozniacki in particular were confounded by one involving (of all things) which in their midst "would spend her last $10 on lip balm." Their answers in succession: "On what?" ... "What?" ... and "Seriously?" That left Stosur to rein it in. And to the surprise of no one, Sharapova finished the clip with a witty, sarcastic quick-strike, much like how she pounds the tennis ball itself.
As we asked yesterday about the ATP's top guns, what WTA pro—one of these eight or another—do you think will win the BNP Paribas Open singles title? And is there one whose personality you prefer over the others?
