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.

Now she is the one who is jealous of them, since they win titles.

Oh Janie! Roughing Anna again. Huh?

tenn_ace, what is the Russian word for gosh?

And tenn_ace, why are the players so against Maria? I guess she's going to get the Kournikova treatment, whether she likes it or not. Udachi Maria! Rise above everyone and everything.

for Janie, it's like a day without a breakfast (if she doesn't say something to bash AK)

the cat, gosh will be (if I still remember Russian) something like [bozhe moy]

I don't think it's because of something Maria did. It s only a human nature (especially among above average talented people)
to be jelaous of someone's success

besides, the article says that Bollitieri gave special attention to Maria... so here we go.

Thanks tenn_ace! Atleast Maria understands what's going on. She is a very bright girl. And I think she might be one Russian girl who has a killer instinct. I hope so, anyway.
