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, Im 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 dont need to do it, but its just my habit, what I do on the court when I have new balls. I just smell them. Its maybe also for the luck, and I do it all my life, so its just, you know, something, what I do on the court.

Talk about taking a phrase out of context.
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.
