Re: What the hell is Mariana Alves doing in the Azarenka box ?



she is supervisor.
Sumyk acting like an idiot, dropping mic and speaking that noone else can hear only Azarenka. Which is "against the rules" of on court coaching. Alves was telling him "no more" this childish play, which is right.

Oh, so that's why she was saying no with her head all the time.

For a second there I thought that she was gonna do a 360 with it

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I thought the supervisor there was shaking her head at the Chair Umpire, and saying "No More" as if no more coaching for Vika for the match.
And ESPN was saying that's Sumyk's second offense. Should probably ban him on court for a tournament.

Re: What the hell is Mariana Alves doing in the Azarenka box ?

It's so weird because before this tournament Vika never called him out. Ever.

But, I will concede, you know you've fucked up royally when Alves is doing her job right.

But yeah, as others have said, she's a supervisor now, only umpires when needed (ie, the BNPlague) for the most part.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Second offense this week. He's done it in the past. He's too much.

Re: What the hell is Mariana Alves doing in the Azarenka box ?

So she warned Sumyk, because he wouldn´t allow the audience to listen to his coaching for the 2nd time in 15 months? Wow I wish the supervisor/umpires would be this strict in the enforcement of their other rules.

Both! I just wanted to make a point. The players break so many rules every day, and Sumyk gets a public warning for the 2nd on-court coaching in 15 months.

Add in the fact that many coaches speak to their players in their native tongue, which a little minority of the audience and opposing players can atually understand. So why is an english speaking coach/player-combination forced to reveal their tactics, while Wozniacki can receive advice in Polish and Petra can receive advice in Czech? A professional coach would easily review the tape of what Sumyk said to Azarenka and possibly use it against her in the future. For other players you´d need to hire a translator. Is that fair?
