I really do like Nastya...

but I think she should chill a bit with Sharapova related comments. Especially, when it's not really Maria's problem, if you think about it, but rather her dad. Being a bit more diplomatic is what the true team leader would do.

And to be honest, she said time and a time again that she wouldn't play pro tennis much longer as she's tired of travelling, so that makes her threats (about walking out from the Russian FedCup team) a bit shallow.

I think she plays good tennis... but her attitude sucks sadly.

I think life will give her a negative feedback if she keeps this immature and stupid rivalry with Maria..

I agree. I like Myskina's tennis but she's not doing herself any favours by these comments. I'm sure that, if she'd voiced her concerns privately, they could have done something about excluding Maria's father from team practices and/or matches, but this way she's acting like a spoiled brat and making it more likely that with such an ultimatum they'll pick Maria over her. I honestly think that some of this is motivated by jealousy in any case - she didn't seem to have any problems with Yuri when she was beating Maria, just when Maria was beating her.

The only one who has been acting like a spoiled brat is Pop Yuri.

And of course, everyone is jealous of Maria. EVERYONE.

Nastya doesn't threaten anybody. She just expresses her opinion and decision. And I'm sure it isn't only hers but of the whole theam - first Neiland opened the theme. Therefore I don't think they will prefer Masha. Yes, Nastya will gather the negatives but someone had to do it.

I think Anastasia is the best athlete on the tour.
I think she has the most court coverage, and the quickest reflexes.
The only thing keeping Anastasia from being world #1 is her mental focus, which is not consistent throughout the whole match.

I want Anastasia to stay on the tour and reach her potential.
I also want her to give her opinion.
And believe me, Maria's dad is an unemployed, loud, obnoxious jerk.

Yet you say that Nadia's focus is fine? You really confuse me sometimes

I didn't say Nadia's focus is fine. I said she's not a headcase. She'll get there. It takes time to put together a complete game, both mentally and physically.

Maria's dad never worked, he has no self worth, no self respect. He sits in the friends box yelling his head off.
He has no respect for these hard working, talented athletes.
That's because he doesn't work, and he has no talent. And he has no common sense.
He has a daughter who is very immature emotionally, and her dad is the only singificant other in her life.
It's a messy situation, and one day Maria will be emotionally mature enough to deal with it.

Why is it that Myskina only said this about Yuri and Maria after Masha beat her in the YEC semifinals? Yuri is the same person he was when Ana beat and humiliated Masha 3 other times in 2004. Why didn't she say something after those matches? Because she won those matches. And Sharapova was on the WTA Tour for a couple of years when Myskina made a point of Masha not being a real Russian. But she didn't say anything last year about Sharapova not being a real Russian. Anastasia waited until after Masha won Wimbledon to say anything which makes me think that Ana didn't care about Masha or Yuri until Masha won Wimbledon and was a clear threat to Myskina and her Russina #1 supremecy.

Anastasia had to answer several questions about Maria's dad at Indian Wells.
I'm glad she's speaking her mind.
It's obvious that Maria's dad is an unemployed loud-mouth jerk.
Maria's not going to play a full Fed Cup schedule anyway. Who needs her.

Myskina is just jealous of Maria. Like everyone else. EVERYONE.

There is no other reasonable explanation, the cat.

Nastya said almost the same in IW though not in that sharp tone. Of course when you are a winner it isn't polite to criticize sharply the disappointed opponent. And especially Yuri developed much more arrogance after Wimby. Now Masha and her father are winners and they should hear the truth.

I think that Nadia would be more valuable to the team than Maria, and there is no way that those two will play together.

Just remember that the problems with Yuri started last year, so he should have been pulled into line earlier.

This is actually very important, because it brings this situation out into the open.
Eventually, Maria will have to deal with it.
Her dad's been around her every day. Because he never works.
And Maria has no one else to share her life with.
But the rest of the tour is not going to sit back while Maria's dad acts like a fool.
Maria needs to grow up, because her dad can't.

Come on Vaiva, you're pulling my tail again.

And I guess Yuri's behaviour was okay when Myskina owned Sharapova the first 3 matches they played otherwise she wouldn't have embraced and kissed Masha after they played in Melbourne and Indian Wells.
