You always do your very best to make a fuss about the posts I'm obviously kidding.

Re: Why does Vika hate Maria so much?

These players lives are more like each other's than they could ever be like ours.

Dislike, much less 'hate', could be over a stolen cup of water, a stolen boyfriend (or girlfriend) or the color of the sky.

Pretending we have a clue changes nothing. It wasn't a 'warm and fuzzy' moment. The rest is silence.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Why does Vika hate Maria so much?

The furthest that I can remember any hint of bad blood between the two was Beijing 2009 with the 'Is her last name Jankovic' comment.

Has anyone mentioned the Nike private jet story from last year? Apparently they were on it with Federer and Nadal for the Nike exhibition in Oregon and ignored each other all the way. If I remember correctly Vika was asking for movie suggestions on twitter for the flight.

And I just love the way Maria says Victoria as well. It just doesn't sound 'natural'. You can go through all her press conferences since she started playing and she will rarely say a players name,'My opponent' is what she uses the majority of the time.

Re: Why does Vika hate Maria so much?

Do we really expect women who compete against each other for money, ranking points, trophies etc, and who have trained to do so since kiddies to be friends?

I recall a TV interview with Henin in her hotel which showed many players in the dining room all with their coaches, all ignoring each other. Henin herself said it wasn't normal but the way it was.

And if people think Vika/Maria is shocking, then Gawd knows what you would make of the players when Seles was making her comeback. Read her 1st book - even she admits tennis is a business and any weakness is pounced on.

Vika is no different to all that went before her and Maria is a pro to her core. Part of why I respect Maria a lot.

I totally for got that she called Maria a Fucking Bitch in Rome.The picture is coming clearer.

She didn't say that.

That fairy tale is as fake as the other, more recent "fucking bitch" story (that was attributed to Petrova's trainer by Stosur fans).

Re: Why does Vika hate Maria so much?

Those two certainly don't like each other. But during their net handshakes Pova is always the coldest.
Notice the difference when Pova handshakes with Serena. Still aloof but full of respect.

Re: Why does Vika hate Maria so much?

It's the other way around.
At this point I'm sure Azarenka is a Sharapova fan. She's been her punching bag for several big finals.

In reality, Vika is just far form being a diplomat or politician..... She is more like Tyson/Ali type and doesn't care if she is polite or not.
Or

maybe she has no respect for her because she can beat her so easily
