Samantha Stosur: What she said, really meant and definitely did not


Samantha Stosur at the 2009 US Open

Sam Stosur Violates The Code

What she  said:

“Yeah, I guess it’s a new thing I’ve got next to my name now.”

Samantha Stosur has a fresh appendage against her name. The Australian No. 1 was referring to a code violation she received for an audible obscenity in her match against Maria Kirilenko in the fourth round of the  US Open.

Stosur said:

I never had one.  The only disappointing thing to come out of the match.  I’m not proud of it, but I guess I released whatever I had to release and moved on.

Yeah, I guess I’m trying as hard as I can out there and don’t want to leave anything out there.  You don’t want to get a code violation or do something wrong, but if that’s what you have to do to release it and be able to play the next point well, then so be it.

What she really meant:

“Samantha, the Code Violator—how does that sound?”

What she definitely didn’t:

“I’m ‘Sam the  Mouth’. Catch me if you can.”

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


Maria Kirilenko at Wimbledon 2007

What she said:

"I didn’t catch the bouquet. All the girls tried to catch it but Dushevina came out from somewhere and stole it from me! I said okay, whatever."

Maria Kirilenko is none-too-perturbed about missing out on the bouquet at the wedding of her friend, Elena Dementieva. Dementieva married NHL star, Maxim Afinogenov, on the 16th of July, 2011 in Moscow.

What she really meant:

“All that practice catching tennis balls from ballboys (and ballgirls) came to naught. You see, there’s no mad scramble for those, on-court.”

What she definitely didn’t:

’Okay, whatever’ wins me tennis matches.”
