Problems with Samba Rhythm

I am an amateur Classical guitarist who has been playing for around 25 years. I have associated Board qualifications to grade 8 and have played with a number of Classical guitar groups mostly associated with the local music school.
Recently I started playing Samba(Brazil) by Jorge Cardoso and spent an initial period sorting out the fingering and the rhythm. At this point I began to feel that it did not sound right and therefore listened on-line to professionals playing it. Sure enough the rhythms they were using were different to mine. I have always thought of myself as quite good at getting the timing and rhythm right so was surprised by this. Is there something about Samba that I have Missed?
