They've Created A Monster!

After watching Maria and her fathers behavior last nite I see a egotistical asshole in the making. Serena is arrogant but not in a evil way. Richard said outragious things but Richard was funny about it. The fist pumps when Serena made double faults, the father cursing at someone in the audience and running to the court was horrible behavior yet the commentaters said nothing. She didn't even acknowledge Serena im her speech. Do you really believe if Clijsters and Henin were playing she would have gotten this far? With all the media hype and constant ass kissing by the commentaters a monster has been created.

There's always two sides to a story. It's unfair to judge a person that we really dont know on a personal level. But so far, he has done a great job in regards to the tennis career of his daughter.

Yuri Sharapov is a complete asshole indeed. We didn't need his last night's behavior to discover this.
I don't think Maria is a monster. She's very fierce when in play but I heard more than once from fans and journalists that she was the sweetest lady offcourt. I don't know her personally though, so my opinion is worth nothing ...
I find her on court attitude a little bit excessive but I don't find that worse than some ladies whose favorite sport after tennis used to be to diss their opponents in press conferences.
And probably, the more experienced and confident in her tennis she will become, the less we will see all this attitude.

Yes, very charming on the BBC during Wimbledon. But yes a bit of a diva on court Don't like her though

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

The media shouldn't reallie show her father walking up the stands after he hugged Maria, what is the pt actually? Cameras should have been on maria or serena during that time, stupid media trying to create controversy

Yuri should really leave the court for the players and have a behavior worthy of his daughter's talent and achievement.

as much as I hate Yuri for his idiotic behaviour (always), he had some "great" predecessors to learn from... remember infamous Richard dance?

Hmmm i dont seem to recall Richard telling an audience member to "Fuck off"...

The same could be said regarding Mr. Williams. Unfortunately, a new monster has arisen, from Russia, no less.

Maria's an awesome player, but she's so goddamn cold (not that that's a bad thing in tennis, but i just can like her as a person). And it really is her father's fault. All she's done her entire life is hit tennis balls. She hasn't experienced stuff that all teenagers experience.

ugh, why do they all suck????????
