Yeah,and this is where common sense kicks in;if a player loses to Niculescu,6-1 6-1(or has any embarrassing loss that's somewhat less extreme),THEN we can insist on a lot more candor.However,I've seen plenty of cases where even legends gave TOTAL b.s. answers and it didn't seem to affect their destiny too much.Case in point,after her 3rd straight Slam loss to Henin in 2007,Serena angrily exclaimed that Justine won on 'lucky shots'.Telling a lie with an empirical statement--e.g.,pretending to be injured when you're not--is one thing,but being less than 100% revealing is VERY normal for pro athletes and doesn't reflect too poorly on Caroline's character,IMO


Btw,confirmed what you said earlier,but even the dictionary explained that most people identify it as being within the same clause even though that wasn't the original meaning
