“I didn’t break any racquets; I didn’t say swearwords on court. It could have gotten better and I could have been better. I didn’t really go nuts.”
Ryan Harrison has an entirely different view of his on-court behaviour in his first round straight-sets loss to Croatia’s Marin Cilic on the first day of the US Open.
What he really meant:
“I was quite decorous in my on-court behaviour, wasn’t I? Look, no broken rackets, no abuse. Commendable, eh?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I’m that transparent, am I? What, my skidding my racquet gave me away?”
