Get to Know Ali Garrity

June 4, 2013

Nickname: Al

One thing I wish people knew about me, but don't is: I am a very approachable person! I love meeting new people and making new friends!

Why did you choose Siena? I choose Siena because it was really the only school I went to that I could picture myself having the best college experience. The campus is the perfect size and the people are so friendly!

If I didn't play tennis, I would: Be very overweight. I love food. (Suki can agree with me on this one)

My favorite TV show is: Breaking Bad

My favorite pro sports team is: Any team that beats the Heat

My favorite book: The Great Gatsby

My favorite movie: Anchorman. Really anything with Will Ferrell!

My favorite food / ice cream is: Sushi or my grandma's Spanish rice...And I love moose tracks ice cream!

If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go to (why): I would like to go back to Europe and spend more time in Switzerland, such a gorgeous country!

The person I would pick as my dream doubles partner would be: Sam Querry, because I actually have played doubles with him before and I hit a winner on John Isner, so I believe he is my good luck charm.

What song/band is most likely to be playing on your iPod? Ride by Lana Del Ray or It Wasn't Me by Shaggy

Do you have any pre-game rituals or traditions? I usually just listen to music really loud and make video montages in my head of me winning the match. Is that weird?

What reality show could you see yourself being a part of? Wipe Out. I know I could get past those big red balls.

Three words to describe yourself: Spontaneous, compassionate and sarcastic

Words to Live By: "Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you will be criticized anyway." -Eleanor Roosevelt
