Maria Sharapova talks about girls rooting against her.
The article is from last May, and Maria talks about jealousies, and how some people, mainly girls, resent her for all the attention she receives. Is it fair? I don't think so. Atleast Maria has an understanding as to why some people resent her. Anna Kournikova has had to go through the same thing. The article is located at http://www.newscoast.com/story/May-1.../masters19.htm
The most surprising aspect of this, is that this rooting against Maria took place at Bollettieri's. Which just happens to have been Maria's main training base for about 8 years. Now she's training most often with Robert Lansdorp at the South Bay Tennis Center in Torrance, California. Maria couldn't have been pleased that so many people were rooting against her on her home court at last years Bollettieri's Masters. I wonder if that led to her moving to California? But Maria handled herself well as usual.
