I Ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts

I Ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of CoconutsI Ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts:Q. I saw a strapping on your hand. Is everything okay with your hand, or is that for protection?
DINARA SAFINA: It’s since Los Angeles. I would say I lost a bet with a coconut. I was trying to open a coconut, and actually didn’t open very good because the knife slipped and it went straight into my hand.
So it was pretty deep. Actually, I was lucky that I was able to play in Los Angeles, because until the day before the tournament I didn’t hit any backhands. There was no chance I could hit any backhand.
The day before the match I was like, Okay, I at least have to try to hit some backhands. I didn’t get to play any points, anything. Just standing in the forehand corner the whole time and serving. That’s the only thing that I could do.
It’s better, but I was also lucky that I didn’t touch any ligament. It was very deep. They didn’t put the stitches because the doctor was not there on site. Now it’s okay.

Q. What happened to the coconut?
DINARA SAFINA: Went straight into the garbage. When I saw in the morning the coach I was like, Don’t get angry at me. You say you would not get pissed. I said, Look at — I showed my hand, and he’s like, Go straight to the physio.
Yeah, because in quarters during the match I hit my leg, so next day also couldn’t do anything because it’s like stress fracture. He’s like, Can you just don’t do anything anymore?
