Re: Sharapova not playing for Russia

Maria is there to support the team. I've seen Amelie do that for France.

"After her practice session, Chakvetadze said it would be wrong for Sharapova to play against Italy because she did not help Russia reach the final."

EW, that's not team spirit. Anna C, you

It's only fair. Good on her for supporting the team though.

Difference is that Amelie actually played (and won) the Fed cup for France.Anyway, even if Russia is a big team with good players, they won't say no to Sharapova forever.They'll need her at one time.

Re: Sharapova not playing for Russia

I predict that Anna and Maria will eventually be friends.

Yes but i think i remember Amelie actually playing for France once or twice. This is another press op for Maria where she can help out her image much like with the Djokovic fiasco.

I wouldn't be surprised if she sneaks in an unrelated photo shoot while she's there.

and yes it's also possible that i'm just a cynical prick and Maria really is the angel some people like to think she is.

Re: Sharapova not playing for Russia

There are other ways to get publicity than spending the week with Shamil

Re: Sharapova not playing for Russia

would you please change the thread into Sharapova'll not play the final ,
and I know that the haters will take the worst from any thing she does , and Anna still young but she's sensetive girl that'll be okay with Masha after short time .

Shame, they could have used her against England today.
