Slovakian tennis champion Daniela Hantuchova expressed her desire to talk to Mirka Federer, to be a first person to interview her.
As the first women to be a commentator in Amazon TV to cover Grand Slams and other tennis matches, she started covering last year US Open and continued this year Australian Open.
She managed to talk to champions Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Juan Martin del Potro, last year in New York during US Open (2018). Daniela feels it was her biggest experience “and they were all very nice. I pleasantly was surprised by their reactions.”
Further she expressed by being a past player turned TV commentator now, “There in an advantage.In the interviews, players are more honest and available. They know I am one of them and they trust me more. They know I am not asking a silly thing, that I really appreciate the game. TVs use the former players for this job because they are more open with them.”
Further, Daniela spoke about her experience in last US Open” I was the first woman on Amazon TV to commentate live matches with the former British player Greg Rusedski. The first event was the Queen’s Club in London on the grass in a Marin Cilic’s match.”
On how she manage to speak English so fluently, Daniela answered, “That’s why I subscribed myself to the intensive English lessons because I do not handle it as well as the Slovakian.”
On Roger Federer wife Mirka avoiding media altogether and desire to speak with her in front of camera, Daniela Hantuchova expressed “I did not have luck with Mirka, but I will try on the first occasion, so it would be beautiful to speak about Slovakia.”
