Cibulkova : "I really like the smell of new balls"

Q. In the second set before you served you kissed the ball a couple of times. Do you do that very often?

DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA: No, I’m not kissing the balls. I really like the smell of the balls, of the new balls. (Smiling).
I was just smelling the balls all the time. I do the same things. Yeah.

Q. Could you talk a little bit about why do you need to smell the ball?

DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA: I don’t need to do it, but it’s just my habit, what I do on the court when I have new balls. I just smell them. It’s maybe also for the luck, and I do it all my life, so it’s just, you know, something, what I do on the court.

Talk about taking a phrase out of context.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
