Novak Djokovic: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

"I don’t know why I ate the grass. I felt like an animal! I wanted to see how it tastes. It came spontaneously. I didn’t plan to do it. I didn’t know what to do in all my excitement and joy."

Novak Djokovic discovered a fresh way to celebrate his Wimbledon win on centre-court. He simply bit into the grass. An acquired taste, perhaps?

What he really meant:

“I’m wild, I’m me, I’m inimitable, so I’d better relish my victory with a fresh, new palate.Pâté de Foie Grass!”

What he definitely didn’t:

“If grass is for cows, I’m one.”

Francesca Schiavone: What she said, really meant and definitely did not

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 20:   Francesca Schiavo...

What she said:

"You should ask Roger (Federer) because I don’t have a lot of (grasscourt) wins.”

Francesca Schiavone admits that she is not well-equipped for grass and believes she should pick up some tips from six-time champion, Roger Federer, on how to cope at Wimbledon.

What she really meant:

“Roger Federer has won the title six times. He’s the best person to approach for advice on how to play at Wimbledon.”

What she definitely didn’t:

“Grass is for cows—and Roger.”

What he said, meant and definitely didn’t: Gary Player

What he said:

“The way you hit the ball, you’re wasting your time playing cricket.”

South African golfing great, Gary Player, to Ricky Ponting on watching him golf.

What he meant:

“You can drive even better on the golf course.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Cricket’s for cows.”

“You’re the next Tiger Woods.”
