Don't think the regular sports press can understand subtle humor, that would be expecting too much of them...
Few more that I can recall:
After beating Monica Seles at Wimbledon in 92:
Bud Collins: Were you afraid of her??
Steffi: Laughs and the says "no not really!!"
After 95 FO:
Bud Collins again: I haven't see you crying (or being emotional) before!!
Steffi: Then, you have just not seen me enough!!
