Why were they frying Sharapova on Eurosports?

When I turned the TV on they were talking about something Maria made like her racket touching the ball but she behaved like as if it didn't. Can anyone explain?

I hate Maria just because of that. It's recurrent.

They said that none of the officials noticed and the only player who could tell that was Maria (she didn't). They also talked about how they sell tickets because of Maria but actually in a match everyone supports her opponents because of these kind of behaviors and her father.

Re: Why were they frying Sharapova on Eurosports?

marsha couldn't be wrong. she was prepared to receive that service, remember? you midgets just can't rely on video replays as evidence or what others see. remember, the umpire can't see it, and marsha's words as a player are final.

you have to trust marsha's integrity, make no mistake about it.

Re: Why were they frying Sharapova on Eurosports?

it was 1-0 first set, Sharapova serving, up 30-0, Sveta's shot was flying miles out but it hit Sharapova's racket so it should have been Sveta's point, no one noticed except the commentators and obviously Sharapova knew, but said nothing about it, its sad to see such bad sportsmanship and sadly its a recurring theme with Sharapova.

LOL

It's Masha's fault that umpire and linesman are blind

Re: Why were they frying Sharapova on Eurosports?

Didn't see the match but in LA against Lena in the semis she touched a ball that went out (there was a deflection in the replay). And was given the point. The umpire couldn't possibly have seen it - but Maria knew all right. From that point on I was really rooting for Lena - so glad she won. There's being competitive (which I ike in Maria) and that (which makes me root for the other player).

Mind you I'd guess Maria isn't the only one who will accept points she knows she didn't win. I'd guess that most players would do the same. It's like in cricket. A batsman edges a ball to the slips and knows he's out. Does he walk. There used to be a big debate on this. Nowadays it's very rare. There's still a tiny few who walk. But with most players - if the umpire doesn't give them out - they stay.

In snooker - I remember a player leaning over some other balls to make his shot at a crucial stage of the match. Then he just stood up and called a foul on himself. He knew he had touched a ball with his waistcoat. No-one could see that. The ref couldn't possibly see that. But he knew and was the only one that knew that he had done it. And the thing is - every other snooker player in the game would have done exactly the same thing.
