French tennis star Kristina Mladenovic has no intentions to pursue acting as a career despite knowing that she's one of the prettier players on court. During a press conference after her straight sets win over Dominika Cibulkova in the St Petersburg Open last week, Mladenovic was stumped when a journalist asked her whether a career in acting was ever in the pipeline. "Thanks for the compliment. It's nice when tennis players look attractive on the court.

No, I would not want to dedicate my life to cinema. I'm focused on having a sports career. At the same time, I like to care about myself and my appearance," she replied. Mladenovic, 24, who's been dating Austrian tennis ace Dominic Thiem for over a year now, picked out her favourite actor though. "I have a lot of favourite films, but my favourite actress is Julia Roberts. I am happy with my beauty. My boyfriend loves me and he thinks I am beautiful," she said.
