Sharapova's pity for Sesil! But it's so bitch!

From Maria Interview after her match (wimbledon.org)

Q. In the second set, did you allow her to win that game or did you want to win it 6‑0?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I know how it feels to lose 0‑0, and it's not a good feeling, so I just let it go (laughter).

I think it's fine to let's one game (altought Sesil playing well in this game) but losing 6-0 6-1 is so hard and you don't have to say " I let it go" cuz it,s so humiliated...

Hwne Sesil vs Maria verbal fight will end?

Tracy Austin would not be pleased! NEVER let your opponent "have" a point, much less a game.

well there may be some truth to that. afterall, those are the ONLY 4 points sesil won in that second set. either that or maria's making a little catty joke about letting a game go to another one of nick's kids.

Why should Maria be nice to Sesil? Get famous from results, not insults.

Q. Did you allow yourself to feel sorry for her?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: No. It's hard to feel sorry for your opponents. Unfortunately, this is an individual sport.

Q. Have you had words since those comments were initially made?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: No.

Q. Did you speak in the locker room afterwards today?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: No. We're in different locker rooms, because I'm in the members' locker room. Sorry. I'm not trying to brag, that's just a fact.

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

Quite right too. Sesil hasn't exactly been all sweetness in certain interviews about Maria.

Is this suppose to make Lindsay feel bad?

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

Lindsay also admitted giving a pity game to Gala Leon Garcia at US Open '99.

Sisil was a total bitch to Sharapova. Without any provocation. She deserves every bit of ridicule she gets for her losses to Sharapova. It's a lesson to every young athlete - you may get infamy for your trash-talking, but you earn respect for your results.

Heh. I think that was an excuse on Sharapova's end for allowing a game to slip by that shouldn't have. I don't believe in pity games... I think it's more or less the commanding player being so relaxed that they're losing points and don't really care at that point because of their lead. That IS different than simply "allowing" the opposition to have a game.
