Re: why do so many players feel the need to talk about sharapova?

They're always asked because the media likes to stir stuff.

Plus they're jealous.

That seems to be the logical explanation.

Why would Maria have to do that? Wouldn't be doing the same thing then she was blaming Ana for?

Re: why do so many players feel the need to talk about sharapova?

For the most part because they are constantly
asked about her. And we've seen where players
on the WTA as well as the ATP get miffed when
asked about her at various times.

IMO, for the most part most athletes don't care to talk
about her or most any other athletes on the tour, period.

Also, the media picks up and prints just about
anything and everything, so ofcourse it would appear
that many are talking about her, when in actuallity, few are.

And TOB fans love to post quotes so they can feel like she's the center of the universe.

I agree, the players want to be asked about their own game instead of continuous questions about someone else. If they finally give a short answer (no matter how diplomatic), it gives the media something to twist, and they can move on to questions about their own match.

Sharapova is the "it girl" of tennis right now and whether you like it or not, the media frenzy will continue until the next "it girl" comes along.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Re: why do so many players feel the need to talk about sharapova?

When Dementieva and Myskina gave their opinions about her in 2004, the media started to ask other players also.
And a lot of them say Sharapova won't talk to them.
Big deal.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: why do so many players feel the need to talk about sharapova?

why do journalists feel the need to ask other players about Sharpie ?

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

At least she doesn't have to settle for someone like Radek.
