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

Third seed Serena Williams, USA returns a shot...

What she said:

“Well, I give half to my favorite uncle, and then the rest I probably save it hopefully.  Pray that the banks don’t go down.  (Laughter.)”

Serena William knows just what to do with the $2.8 million she will get at the US Open if she wins.

What she really meant:

“You do know, the Uncle I was referring to is Uncle Sam. Taxes, my friends, taxes.”

What she definitely didn’t:

“You’d think my $1.4 million would prop up the banks.”

Maria Sharapova: What she said, really meant and definitely did not

Maria Sharapova, tennis player

What she said:

“I don’t think I would allow that (laughter).”

Maria Sharapova does not tell her boyfriend Sasha Vujacic how to play basketball and likewise will not permit him to advise her on the intricacies of tennis.

What she really meant:

“I’m the tennis player—not Sasha.”

What she definitely didn’t:

“It’s rocket science.”

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?”

What he definitely didn’t:
