Serena Williams:What she said, really meant and definitely did not


Serena Williams playing for the Washington Kas...

What she said:

“I’m more devastated than ever.I’m just a much better actress now." 

Serena Williams is a reporter’s delight despite her early loss to Marion Bartoli in the fourth round at Wimbledon. The only thing that could upset her on a tennis court is facing “Nadal at the French Open. That would drive me insane.”

What she really meant:

“I’m better at masking my emotions now. Isn’t that what grown-ups do?”

What she definitely didn’t:

“Where’s my Emmy?”

Andy Murray: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Andy Murray against Roger Federer at the 2008 ...

What he said:

"No, because you get sort of attached to them.Like, if you always go into the same shower, and then one day someone’s in it, you’re obviously not going to jump in there. Well, you could, but I choose not to (laughter).I heard Tim (Henman) used to always go in the same shower.Maybe he should have changed when he got to the semifinals."

Andy Murray is not too superstitious about his pre-match and post-match rituals.

What he really meant:

“Rituals are not worth getting oneself in a twist about. You can attribute both positive and negative events to them.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Where’s my Sony Playstation? Don’t you know it relaxes me?”

Chris McKendry:What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Victoria Azarenka at 2009 Roland Garros, Paris...

 

What he said:

“She’s the noisiest player we’ve ever heard, so to say she’s ‘quietly’ sneaking through the draw would be absolutely crazy."
Chris McKendry complaining about Victoria Azarenka’s noisiness on court.
 
What he really meant:
“Azarenka’s a fog-horn on court.Definitely not going through the draw silently.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I can play better than Victoria.”

Somdev is hitting his stride and new heights on the ATP tour.

His ranking has risen to 94, his best ever on the ATP tour.

Somdev has been hovering in and out of the top 100 for the past few  months.

A ranking within the top 100 will ensure automatic entry into the majors allowing him to skip the grind of qualifying rounds.

Devvarman recently clinched the men’s singles gold at the CommonWealth Games in New Delhi, justifying his top seeding.
