Janko Tipsarevic, currently 8th in the ATP rankings, took the time to answer some of our more trivial questions while he was watching Croatia’s final match of Euro 2012, against Spain. A mental preparation for Wimbledon, somehow…
Where are the meteors that killed the dinosaurs?
Probably out to destroy another planet...
Why is the letter A the first letter of the alphabet?
I guess it's because it's the easiest letter to pronounce. It would be harder to start the alphabet with a letter like W, don’t you think?
Why don't men wear skirts?
Because women do. After all, who said that we couldn’t wear them? It's maybe just because we’re not Scottish.
What should we trust the most: Wikipedia or Twitter?
Wikipedia, of course.
"Smoking Kills" is written on packs of cigarettes. Why isn’t "Drinking Kills" on bottles of alcohol?
Good question. I guess drinking isn’t so bad if you drink in moderation. I believe that alcohol, if your body is a bit used to it, it will do less damage than cigarettes. I exclude, of course, drinking-and-driving from this answer.
Why do we always meet weirdos in launderettes?
It's true that. It should also be it on the "Laundrette" page of Wikipedia! Maybe it’s because a few people there have gone mad because of the cleaning products, something like that. But it’s essential to add this to Wikipedia, definitely!
Is it allowed to have sex with your flatmate?
Well, you know, I'm married so... I think that, in any case, it wouldn't work. Being flatmates and lovers at the same time, it just doesn't work.
Could you sing your order at McDonald's?
Yeah, and I might even do it to the tune of my national anthem.
If your taxi driver uses reverse gear during the journey, can you ask for a refund?
No, you can't. I usually pay my bills... And then the driver, I don't think he would agree to that. It's not very fair anyway. But if he tries to take the mick, I would have no problem not paying!
Could you use the flash of your camera in broad daylight?
Yes, I could do it, but it would be silly.
Where can a beggar go on holidays?
I think he can just move to another place in the city he’s already in. Where could he go anyway?
Why are there no viruses on Mac, if you compare with PCs?
I don't know, I’ve never had a Mac...
Have you ever been to an art opening?
What is that - an art opening? If it’s a gallery opening or an exhibition, no, I've never done it.
How do the deaf and dumb do to tell secrets?
Hmmm, tough one. They’d need to invent signs that nobody else knows, or maybe they should hide. Anyway, if these really are secrets, they shouldn’t be telling them, right?
