Maria doesn't look fake..?

.. on reactions? Why she had to sit down on the court?? And all that face of joy.. That doesn't look real.. She just do it just for us to feel happy for her.. But it doesn't work...

Do you feel the same?

I cringed when she sat on the court.
The Wimbledon knee moment was genuine and sweet.
Last night was so awkward i actually grimaced in embarrasment for her !
(and i kind of like her!)

Nothing this talented young girl does escapes criticism. She just won a mentally and physically exhausting tournement - 5 matches in 5 days- and had just become the year end WTA champ. Instead of dancing giddily Maria collapsed on the court for a few seconds while it all sunk in. I've seen this happen in tennis many times, it's neither unusual or wrong.

I don't recall ever seeing anything like it, ever, and i've been watching for decades.
Knees, yes, covering the face, sure. But just gently sitting back ? lol.
Not that it's wrong - it's perfectly fine, but it just looked so awkward !

She was there so long that she had to run to Serena who was already on Maria's side of the court for the handshake !

p.s. as tasteless as Maria's yelps at SW df's were - she did seem to say something nice to Serena at the end about her injury. Serena looked as if to say 'it's ok, good match' or something.

This is the important thing. When Maria plays Indian Wells and Key Biscayne in 2005, she'll still be 17.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Wow! what's up with all the Maria hatahs here???

Give it up, your gal serena lost. When she was down 4 games in a row, she faked an injury.

It looked like a badly-done drama piece her falling to the floor

I agree.

And I don't criticise anything else about her regarding last night.

But that one was really really FAKE.

she just seemed really really tired to me. she just collapsed. but i guess if you're intent on hating her then anything she does is grist for the mill.

It was like she went to her knees and remembered that that's what she did at Wimby and then went over to the side and just sat down on the court.
