Maria has enough things to worry about. She shouldn't have to take time to police her box. If Yuri is really a problem then the WTA Tour will rectify the situation one way or another becauzse they won't let what happened to Dokic happen to Sharapova.

Didn't US Open officials force Damir Dokic to leave the grounds?
I remember a picture of Jelena crying, as she walked behind her dad.
Maria should have handled this a long time ago.
All the WTA can do is ban her dad from the tournament site.

Yes the U.S. Open officials forced Damir Dokic off the U.S. Open grounds. I hope Max, Maria's mom, Lansdorp or Bollettieri or the WTA Tour can help this situation correct itself before it's too late and Yuri becomes a major problem for Masha.

I think Maria is the only person with the power to change Maria's dad's behavior.
That's why I wanted her to get her own lawyer.
So she can control her money, and who gets it.

Maria controls her own money and has her prize money wired into her bank accounts. She said that on the "Today Show" after she won Wimbledon. Matt Lauer asked Maria what she did with the money she got for winning Wimbledon and she said she had it wired into one of her bank accounts. That way it's her money and no one else can get their hands on it. She's a smart girl GL. Masha has it together on and off the court. And for all we know she could have her own lawyer.

Maria's dad was giving Anastasia problems long before the YEC.
Just read Anastasia's interview at Indian Wells after beating Maria.
Question after question about the wacky dad.

It's over with GL. Things will be okay in 2005 between Maria and her opponents. I'm sure her father has been advised to tone it down.

That's right.

Quote:
...Some ugliness occurred last month when French Open champion Anastasia Myskina threatened to quit Russia's Fed Cup team if Sharapova joins the squad, saying she doesn't like Sharapova's father, Yuri.

Sharapova won't ask her father to stay away from her matches.

"He's been with me throughout my whole life and my whole career,'' she said. "He's put so much effort and so much desire into trying to help me any way he can.''

Russian Fed Cup coach Shamil Tapischev said last month that Sharapova agreed to play next year. Sharapova said her representatives are talking to Tapischev, but nothing has been finalized. Sharapova, an only child, is extremely close to her parents. Even though she turns 18 in April, she's in no hurry to move out and be on her own. "I love my parents,'' she said. "I trust them so much that I don't feel I need to get rid of them.''

GL, you shouldn't have Yuri Sharapov on your mind during the joyous holiday season.

By the way Miss Lox, wait until Dasha Sharapova and Maria's Uncle Alex join the WTA Tour in a few years. From what I've read Uncle Alex seems to be alot like his brother Yuri.
