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

Andy Murray of Great Britain wins the Cincinna...

What he said:

"Try being a British player going into a Grand Slam. It’s not easy."

Andy Murray shrugs aside the ‘nerves’ question in the press conference following his gritty win over India’s Somdev Devvarman in the first round at the US Open.

Murray clarified his statement:

“It was a little bit of a joke, a little bit of truth in it. I think for anyone that sort of wants to go on and win a slam or, you know, feels like they’re in with a shot, you know, I think it’s natural to start.  You know, you put a lot of effort and preparation into getting ready for these events and, you know, you don’t want to get off to a bad start or whatever. I think nerves are a good thing.  I think it shows you care and that, like I say, I put a lot into getting ready for it.  I hope my game’s going to be there and the hard work pays off.”

What he really meant:

“The weight of expectations from the press (you guys) is heavy on my shoulders. I’m stooped before my time.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Let’s grab Tim Henman and get him to elaborate further.”


Alec Stewart: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Ex England Captain Alec Stewart

What he said:

"What a joke team. No Viv Richards, Gary Sobers, Malcolm Marshall to name but three."

Alec Stewart cannot but laugh at the notion of an ICC Greatest Team that omits Gary Sobers, Malcolm Marshall and Sir Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards. The team was chosen via online polling.

What he really meant:

“Man, if I were to choose an all-greats team second to this, my team would triumph.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Stuff it, guys.”

“Yeah, I mean, they say that very quickly, so…

Let’s talk in six months again.”

What he really meant:

Don’t write off Rafa or me as yet.

What he definitely didn’t:

Yeah, Rafa and I are going to quit the sport in six months.

My dog, Bolshoi, is keen. He intends to become a sports journalist.

“Do you know that Sports Keeda is running a competition for posts about the World Cup on its website?”

“Yes, I received an email informing me of something to that effect.” I reply.

“I wish to participate. Can you eke out my entry on your laptop?”
