Sharapova does not support On-court Coaching, then use it

"I don't support it. Our sport is an individual sport and you play by instinct. That's what makes it so good, is that you're the one who has to decide what you're going to do."

And then she calls for her hitting partner Michael Joyce to give her tuition before the beginning of the second set against Ana....



"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Re: Sharapova does not support On-court Coaching, then use it

federer doesnt support hawk-eye. but he uses it all the same

i dont see anything majorly wrong with what federer, and in the same case sharapova are doing. they're just taking advantage of what they are given

Re: Sharapova does not support On-court Coaching, then use it

I guess she's not as opposed to it as her comments would have you believe

She didn't say that she wouldn't use it though, she's just taking advantage of a situation

No critical. Just pure facts. You decide should it be criticised...

She did say so well before she first used on-court coaching. Perhaps after using it for the first time she changed her opinion.

Re: Sharapova does not support On-court Coaching, then use it

FEREDER IS AGAINST INSTANT REPLAY. On several occasions, he has come out to denounce it. Safin as well is also against instant replay. THEY BOTH USE IT, and they win points off it. Omg, are they f-ing idiots who are unfair and don't know anything about the game? I mean how dare they, we should go hang them at the stakes right? Give me a stinkin break. Again, total double standards, AS USUAL.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
