The Reason The Crowd Hate Sharapova Today

Because People Hate Her Grunt
Start Booing and whistling

Sharapova's customary screeches reached maximum volume as the match slipped away, and the noise seemed to annoy fans on Court Suzanne Lenglen. They whistled and booed Sharapova as she left the court after the match, and she didn't acknowledge the crowd.

She clearly faced the crowd.

People say they can't hear, they can't, some can't, some can, but they all saw that she reacted with anger towards the Mexican Wave that's so traditional in Roland Garros.. so they picked on her..

Re: The Reason The Crowd Hate Sharapova Today

Actually, it all started after a few whistles and when she won the point, she screamed at the crowed fist bumping. Since that the crowd turned against her, with or without the grunts - in fact both girls were unbelievable quiet during a point in the third set..

If the grunting annoyed the crowd (which probably did) the crowd would have started booing from game 2.

Thank you.

If the grunting annoyed the crowd what are they doing here? They can watch others girls ? What the hell are they doing on the Court?

Re: The Reason The Crowd Hate Sharapova Today

The truth is, the RG crowd will boo just about any player (including the French) for just about any reason, including (but not limited to) questioning a call (even when the player is right), making noises, taking too much time between points, playing poorly, standing up to them, smashing a racket, hitting a ball out of frustration, not waving to them when leaving the court, etc. They just seem to get a collective kick out of jeering and whistling.

Confusion will be my epitaph

Re: The Reason The Crowd Hate Sharapova Today

really unnecessary of them considering she was one half of the greatest match on the women's side so far.

they could have been at least a little appreciative of her efforts.

Re: The Reason The Crowd Hate Sharapova Today

i agree i think sharapova fist pumping and probably loud grunting annoyed the crowd.
Although "some" section of the crowd behaved like jerks but the rest of the crowd is nice.
Sharapova behaved like a spoiled baby right there. Whatever the crowd did might be bad but sharapova (as a three time grandslam title champion should know better) and have acted proffesionally rather cursing at the crowd.
If i was wta chief, i fine her ass for that behavior.

I think that the Frenchies haven't forgotten last year's match against Patty, either...

She was the favorite and she led 76 52, so the crowd rooted for Safina. The crowd always love the underdog.

Her grunting annoayed the crowd, so one more time, what are they doing here, they pay to see Maria, and they know she is gonna scream on every shot, like she always does. She is not gonna change anything for this fucking assholes people.
