Are you ever curious about the real lives of politicians, celebrities and athletes?
Who are their mentors and who would they really like to meet? What's in their fridge?
Each Tuesday, ABC ACTION NEWS is asking the same 10 questions of a Bay area leader or celebrity. They're fun questions that let you get to know the person.
In this week's profile, we're thrilled to hear from tennis legend and Florida native, Chris Evert.
Evert is a former number one world champion. She has won 18 grand slams including a record seven championships at the French Open and a record six championships at the U.S. Open.
I met Chris at a donor appreciation luncheon this past week for kids charities, spearheaded by community activist Dottie Berger MacKinnon. Chris is the spokesperson for Simply Smart milk and presented MacKinnon with a check.
I found Chris Evert to be down to earth, compassionate, and really funny!
She told me she has always played tennis and truly never had another job, but if she did, she would want to get into your mind! Read more.
10 Questions for tennis legend Chris Evert
1.) What is your all time favorite movie or song?
The Sound of Music because it brings back so many memories of me growing up. The movie had such an impact on me.

3.) Who do you count as your mentor(s)?"
My dad....my dad and my dad.
4.) What was your very first job?"

5.) If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?"
You have to narrow it down to just one? Ok, then I would say to be less impulsive.

10. If you could have a different career, other than what you're doing now, what would it be?
