Maria Sharapova snobbing a loyal fan! (Fan's Reaction to players snobbing them)

At last years Australian Open (before Maria Sharapova won wimbledon and everybody made a big deal out of her), my brother and his friends went to watch her play doubles with Tanasugarn. He and his friend were cheering for both Maria and Tamarine and made friends with a Thai reporter and yelled out encouragements in Thai. My brother says they were going overboard with their cheering. Anyway, after the match Tamarine signed for them but Sharapova ran away. My brother chased Sharapova and becuase she wasn't that big none was around her. he walked about 100 metres by her side and pollitely asked her for her autograph and she said "no i dont do autographs". He kept telling her how much of a fan he was and how he came all the way to see her but she still refused. My brother eventually told her "that's the way you lose your fans Maria" and the person escorting her back to the clubhouse told him "hay u cant speak to her like that". This shows how arrogant she is by not signing a fan's autograph and at this time there was no big hype for her. My brother was shattered because he was a big fan from the start and followed her results. How hard can it be to do a sqiggle for a loyal fan. I don't know why he still likes her. Please tell stories of when you were snobbed by player for no reason at all

First of all you are full of crap. Not one smart tennis fan on this board actually believes their faves are absolutely perfect.

There is always two sides to a story......

This thread has nothing to do with bagging Maria. I just wanna know if this has happened to any one else. Besides, you dont have to be perfect to sign an autograph.

I was next in line for Elena Dementieva's sig at Sydney when she stopped signing, should I slam her for it?

Like I said there are two sides to a story. I bet if Maria even remembered that moment she would have had a completely different version of it and I bet it would not have been favorable.

Yay!!! We have a new uber-bitch today...God, this board is like High School...tomorrow probably will be player Y. Let it go, people!

True or not, most players don´t give autographs in certain situations (after practice, before practice, after a match, after warm-up), sometimes they even come up with a lenghty explanation why not although they could write like 10 autographs instead of explaining themselves and then there are those players who always give autographs to every single person who wants one, for example uhh...surprise! - yersterday´s uber-bitch Nastya.

Truly bitchin´!

Well your brother is proving that his own words are wrong. Maria snubbed him big time, yet you say he is still her fan. So we see how the players CAN get away with treating their fans rudely. If I saw a player act like that, I would be rooting against them from that day onward.

I see a difference from lining up, than going up to the player and asking them for an autograoh especially when their is not a crowd.
