you sure he was honest? when you are pressed with the question, you try to water it down.
He was hardly "pressed". The interviewers (perhaps from TC) asked him what it meant, and he gave them a brief, simple explanation. Forget that it matched his gesture. Why would I assume that the guy who once publicly dismissed Djokovic as a joke and classified Nadal as one-dimensional suddenly felt inclined to lie about a winning gesture?
