Sania Mirza feelingly quips on an earthquake north of Tokyo while at the Toray Tan Pacific Open.
Dominika Cibulkova, however, felt nothing.
“I didn’t even feel it. People were talking and I didn’t really know what was happening. But the chair umpire told me afterwards. That’s never happened to me.”
What Mirza really meant:
“The ground moved from under me and this time it was not Shoaib (Malik).”
What she definitely didn’t:
“Someone, hand me my broom please so that I can clean up this mess. All while I listen to Alanis Morrisette’s ‘Under Rug Swept’.”
Muttiah Muralidharan admitted that there exists more than a modicum of ‘truth’ in Hashan Tillekaratne’s allegations of match-fixing in Sri Lanka.
The legendary off-spinner stated that he ,too ,indulged in match-fixing.
“My wife and I were fixed up. It was an arranged match and I don’t see anything wrong with it. It is a Indo-Sri Lanka collaboration that has worked to our mutual benefit.” said the Tamil , with a toothy grin.
Sania Mirza woke up late last evening to a call on her mobile.
Ms. Saina Nehwal, India’s ace shuttler, was on the other end.
“Sania didi, I need your help. It’s urgent.”
“Hey Saina, how are you? How’s it going? Congratulations on your Swiss Grand Prix win.”
“Thank you. Thank you very much.”
