What is your opinion / perception of Yuri Sharapov walking out / ABANDONING his daughter just before she lost her serve to go 2-5 down?
TBH I feel sad for Maria. When she was scrambling her rags together, walking off in a hurry, it looked as though she was AFRAID. Maybe thinking about what Yuri was going to do to her say.
If you had a daughter, losing a match would you do the same? It was all so cold. It added the suspicion of SOME PEOPLE that it’s such behaviour from Yuri – that causes Maria to be so Psychotic on the court (when she is playing against nobodies).
I agree, it was really weird. The man looks so cold and strict...
He is the one who made her, and he kinda made her dependent on him, so leaving the court when she needs him the most is pretty hard I think.
He is his coach for god's sake. Being able to accept his player/daughter's defeats is part of his job. What is he gonna do if her career goes downhill from now on (dont think it will happen...) ? Leave her and despise her??
Well, the match was practically over, so it just might been his last attempt to shock Maria to try her best before it's too late. On the other hand, if he did it becouse of anger, he can easily join Pierce/Dokic fathers in future.
Yuri had to leave to get the whip ready.. sharapova could be getting that beat down right now. LMAO.... Now if only justin henin lose I will be happy as i could care less who wins the US Open so long as it's not sharapova or henin
