Kolkata, Sep 19 (UNI) The hands that rock the courts, rule the ladle.
That is what the international line-up of tennis divas showed while preparing pasta here today.
Daniela Huntachova, Sofia Arvidsson, Sunitha Rao, Cornett Jones, Ekateria Ivanova, Yaroslava Shedova, Maria, Yulia Efremova and a host of other tennis stars from across the globe got involed into several off-court activities and showed that they were equally good in the kitchen as they were cooking up the big serves on the court.
''It's a very exciting experience. The whole thing was fun,'' Sunitha said, adding that she has tried her hand in cooking in the past.
The others felt free to interact with the press and Yulina also sang for MTV.
''When I took a break from tennis (during her pregnancy), I thought I'll try to be a singer. But then, I discovered that trying to be a singer is a lot more expensive then being a tennis player,'' Yulina later said.
''Yes, I have tried cooking before,'' Arvidsson said.
''I had been here in 2005 and kind of liked this place. I even tried some Indian cuisine,'' she added, even as a juggler, straight out of the Ripley's, thrilled Hana Smorova, Ivanova and Shedova with twisting hands and disappearing eye-balls.
The girls even tried their hands on an innovative hybrid of golf and tennis. In all it was party time with pasta, games and magic!!! UNI
