Alan Butcher: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

"Now I know what it means when they say you smell like a brewery."

Alan Butcher does not mind reeking of liquor when it happens in a good cause (and celebration). Zimbabwe won their one-off Test at home against Bangladesh on Aug 8,2011, their first five day game in six years.

What he really meant:

“It’s the sweet, heady taste of victory. Can’t you scent it?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I wish they would produce perfumed alcohol. Maybe a fruity brew next time. They do use alcohol in perfumes, don’t they? Why not vice versa?”

Tim Bresnan: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

"It’d help if the India fielders didn’t have their hands in their pockets. It’s not that cold. They need to look interested [in play] and show some desire. If you don’t want to be here, go home."

Tim Bresnan is not amused with the attitude of the Indian cricket team on the field in the third Test at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The Indians folded for 224 in their outing, the fifth consecutive innings where they have been bowled out for less than 300 runs.

What he really meant:

“We like winning but against competitive sides—not deadbeats.It devalues our efforts.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“If the Indians need extra sweaters, they can pick up some from our dressing room.”

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.”

Roger Federer: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

“Absolutely. I always have been. The day after my victory, the day after my final losses, I’ve been hungry. It doesn’t come in phases. I’m always hungry. And that’s a good thing.”

Roger Federer is not sated by his 16 Grand Slam wins and is always looking out to add more titles to his kitty.

What he really meant:

“As long as I can play—well, I’m hungry for more.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“What time’s dinner?”

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

Maria Sharapova

What she said:

“Even though it was really tough, I think he kept believing that one day he would have more, even if it was one trophy, even if it was one more dollar, one victory over another, yeah.”

Maria Sharapova describes her father, Yuri, as being eternally optimistic and a great believer in the American dream.

What she really meant:

“My father had a never-say-die spirit that served him (and me) well.”

What she definitely didn’t say:

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

Stephane Robert: What he said,really meant and definitely did not

Tomas Berdych against Stanislas Wawrinka at th...

What he said:

“It’s just to say thank you to mother nature for being so nice to me and allowing me to produce such good shots. In those moments you have the feeling that you live in perfect harmony with the nature.”

Stephane Robert explains the ecstatic  kisses he blew to the sky during his shock victory over sixth seed Tomas Berdych.

What he really meant:

“I have to thank someone and I couldn’t blow kisses to just anyone in the stands. My girl-friend won’t understand.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Next match, it’s the Tarzan costume for me.”

India has a baby born every two seconds. That makes approximately 30 * 60 * 24 = 43,200 babies born on the auspicious day.
