WATCH: Badosa brought her California desert swagger to this Confessional Cart challenge.
Paula Badosa has gone for broke through much of her sophomore season among the WTA elite, and her turn on Tennis Channel’s Confessional Cart was no different.
Given the choice between softball and potentially embarrassing questions, the Spaniard went big each and every time to rack up 18 points on the ride around the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
“I like the kind of things where you never know what’s going to happen,” she said after singing the chorus of Bad Bunny’s “Callaita.”
In between naming her favorite tennis twitter account and her go-to road trip buddy, the 2021 BNP Paribas Open champion got real about what she called some “auto-destructive” tendencies.
“I’m challenging myself to be more positive, having more self-care and giving myself more love,” she said.
Badosa was hopefully forgiving of herself after playing a brutal three-setter at the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic on Wednesday, narrowly surviving rising American star Elizabeth Mandlik, 7-6 in the third.
Mandlik is the daughter of four-time major champion Hana Mandlikova, and twice served for the match against Badosa before the second seed ultimately survived to book a box office quarterfinal against either Coco Gauff or Naomi Osaka.
Can Badosa maintain her spot atop the Confessional Cart leaderboard and keep pushing for the top of the WTA rankings? Stay tuned this season to find out.
