We chatted with the charming Olivier Rochus last year while at the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport, RI. A few things about Oli (his nickname) that you might not know........he loves golf, he is afraid of heights, and he doesn't like the Transformer movies. Check it out!
Q. What has been your favorite moment on the court?
It is tough to say, very nice one at Wimbledon when I beat Safin also in Davis Cup when I won my first ATP tour when I was 19, and when I beat Djokovic in Miami.
OTGT: It's nice to have so many things.
I have played for many years, it's not my first year on the tour, I've been here since I was 18, 19 so I am 30 years old so.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Sometimes the behavior of arrogant people, you know, not being nice with kids or people, these are some things I really don't like.
Q. What are you most afraid of?
Of height, I cannot look down. I like the floor and my feet on the ground.
