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
