Elena and Maria

In their acceptance speaches Elena thanked Maria, she actually said thank you. But Maria didn't mention Elena at all, and it didn't look like an oversight. Maria didn't even look at Elena and at one point they were acres apart and Elena looked a little uncomfortable.

Is their a bit of bad blood between the two, and if so does anone know why? You can't beat a bit of off court rivalry to spice things up!

But Elena was very gracious in defeat.

Its not very spectacular Ivy most people wouldnt even pick up on anything
Theres no real history between them aside from past minor comments made about the Russian team situation. Theyve played 5 times since 2003 though.

and I also think Lena doesn't care if Masha would thank her or not

all you maria haters like to read between the line
if u looked closer u'd see things were fine
i'm not really a fan but enough is enough
give maria a go and don't be so rough
You may not like her, if that is the case
turn of the tv and move to another place

yeh i agree princess sarah. she is not such a bad person or anything. she is a bit immature but she will grow out of it cause she is still young. just give her a chance. she is a fantastic tennis player and will be one of the greats of the game wen she retires i rekon. just focus on her tennis and give her a fair go.

I think Elena has said that Maria is the best of the Russians out there. From what I understand anyway, besides Elena and Myskina, there are hardly many friendships even among the Russians.

So even though I don't expect Dementieva to come out and say she loves Maria, I do think she acknowledges Sharapova's talent.

Elena was as usual nice and modest whereas Maria ....I'm not going to say anything bad. ..but it's her choice if she wants to thank her or not....I think Lena doesn't even care about her...there were some talks for the Russian Fed Cup team and Lena expressed herself clear that she doesn't like Maria on the team ...so I guess friendship is out of the question ...anyway Lena can live without Maria, that's for sure

Go LenaD !!

Elena was the nasty one at the net. Maria put her hand up to give Elena the 'buddy' handshake, which Elena kindly returned with a handshake in which she barely touched Maria's hand. It was funny stuff.

I was confused as to why Maria didn't say, "Elena had a great tournament, and should feel great about her week. She played a great match.". Elena congratulated Maria, why couldn't she return the favor?

I dont think lena likes her because she thinkes she isin't really Russian and lena is very patriotic. Also lena is nice and modest maria is a bit up her own ass simple as that

I was also a little bit dissapointed by Maria... I hope she just forgot and no thought was put into that as I love both players.


PS. I don't see Maria giving Elena any credit in her interview as well. Of course, I only saw parts of it in the news articles...

IF MARIA EVER WANTS TO PLAY ON RUSSIA'S FEDCUP TEAM, SHE HAS TO MAKE EFFORTS TO PATCH UP WITH THE REST OF RUSSIAN GIRLS. THIS WAS A LOST GOOD OPPORTUNITY.

Vassilissa is my girl............

Maria should be thankful, Justine would have had the title if she won the semi.

Good Luck

What does she need to patch up if anything they shouls be the ones trying to patch things up with her as they were the ones making the statements about her. She has never said anything negative about them.
