Donâ€™t call her Macaroni
Â Serena Williams conqueror Ekaterina Makarova in her post-match news conference.
Q.Â Does your last name mean anything?Â Sounds a little bit like macaroni in Italian.
EKATERINA MAKAROVA:Â I know, but I don’t like it.Â When sometimes you are playing, the crowd, they start, Macarena or Macaroni, I don’t like it really, so…
Q.Â You don’t like the macaroni or…
EKATERINA MAKAROVA:Â No, the Italian food, I really like it (smiling).Â I don’t like how they call sometimes.Â Because in Russia, it’s really popular family name.Â The international people, they didn’t understand.Â That’s okay.Â I’m used to it.
Q.Â You look a little bit like Gwyneth Paltrow.Â Do you know her?
EKATERINA MAKAROVA:Â I know her, but I don’t think that we look similar.Â You like strange questions (laughter).
Dating a golfer
Q.Â (Question off mic.)
ANA IVANOVIC:Â We just, you know, just support each other and try to be there for each other as much as we can.
Q.Â You ever talk to Caroline about dating a golfer?
ANA IVANOVIC:Â Well, I don’t think either of us plays really well.Â You mean playing golf or…
Q.Â No, dating a golfer.
ANA IVANOVIC:Â No, she did ask me like what kind of shoes should I take to walk on the course.Â Just the most comfortable ones.
Q.Â Kukushkin is coached by his wife.Â If Kim was helping you this week, what do you think she’d be telling you?
ANDY MURRAY:Â I mean, she’s been around tennis pretty much her whole life, so she at least has an understanding of it.Â To be honest, I have very few conversations with her about tennis.Â To be honest, it’s not really necessary.Â You just get the, Well done, or, Bad luck.Â That’s pretty much it.
I’m sure she would be okay.Â She might be better than most because her dad’s been a coach for a long time, so she understands a little bit.
