View Full Version : Disappointment

Many people are fans of Maria Shrapova. The main reason why we all purchased tickets to see her in action during Jan 5th to 8th 2005. We were all filled with disappointment when she appeared just to tell us that she could not play because she did not feel well. Throwing tennis balls to the avid fans did not help alleviate the utter disappointment among her fans as she did not genuinely look sick. Now we see her looking well and playing in Australia. It would have been better if she was truthful.

It's the fans that make the athletes famous. She would not get support she expects in the future.

She seemed ill in her press confrence photos. Like she had the flu or something.

I understand your dissapointment at missing out on her playing. I think the sun in Melbourne helped her recover from her bug. I feel your being a little harsh on Maria.

If Maria said she was feeling ill, I believe her.

She looks particulary ill in this picture:

And this picture:

Maria is not the type to pull out of a match for no reason. She wants to take on and beat everybody.

Incidentally, she was due to play Nicole Vaidisova, who pulled out before Maria did. Are you venting anger at Nicole too?

A REAL fan would prefer her happiness and well being, than their own good.... Don't you say you are fan... cause you just not.... notice the way you speak...

Stars from many sports are often guilty of not putting the fans first. For example Lleyton Hewitt who does the bare minimum in terms of iinterviews and PR etc. I went to the masters at the Albert hall and was very dissapointed to see boris becker retire against Mc Enroe, but us fans have got to remember this is a proffesion. If a player is injured or unwell, and they play, they are likely to aggrevate the injury, and may be out from the sport for an even longer period. Nothing could make up for your dissapointment like throwing balls to the crowd; be realistic, this is not a tennis match, but it shows she at least cared. If it was Hewitt playing, or most other players on either tour, do you think they would even have bothered turning up if the other player has pulled out, and they are feeling lousy? Yes I believe you, that you're a fan, but i think you can't turn your dissapointment into anger at Maria. She's probably the player who cares most about her fans, so please don't post anything like this again, it's an insult!

Right, this is the edited version of my awfully harsh post!!!


I can understand your dissapointment, but i think that Maria coulnt help it if she felt sick.

I still dont like the fact that you called her untruthful.

I think that a star is absolutly downgraded when they lie to their fans!

I dont think Maria could ever stoop that low.

And i doubt Maria will ever do that.

Shame on you BOO HISS BOO!!!

Jan 23rd, 2005, 08:47 PM
Whoa Josh u've gawn a bit mad!! I reckon its totaly reasonable to feel bitter if the player you were looking forward 2 seeing retires. I reckon Marcy's just overreacting - though he's an asshole for accusing her of being dishonest.

Look, I understand your disappointment, I was equally disappointed. But she did try her best to make up for her withdrawal. She went out and did a whole hour of autograph signing session. :) I met 3 people who flew all the way from Phillippines just to see her! Image how they must have felt. Try to be reasonable and rational. :)

I'm happy that the extra time in Melbourne seems to have done her good, she's into the quaters! Maria fans should all be happy she's doing well, doesn't matter where she's playing. Agree?

a whole hour?!!

just imagine this marcy, sitting in front of a desk with a load of strangers coming up to you just wanting you to sign something. Any idea how repetitive this gets, or how boring? unfortunately i've never had the pleasure of being so famous as to have to complete an hour of autograph signing [yet!] but I bet you Maria enjoyed every moment of getting the chance to meet some of her fans, rather than dwelling on the fact that this is such a potentially boring task!! If you're reading this, PLEASE come on the board and at least say you understand!!! Otherwise you's a bigger asshole than I thought.

Yep, she did an hour of signings. I had the chance to talk to her and she was nothing but wonderful. :yeah: Sure it's disappointing...but things like this happen. That's life, just gotta live with it. :)

Marcy hasn't come back to give us another opinion because he's an asshole who just posted here to get at her REAL fans and left. Either that of Josh's post scared him off!

He's already shown he's not a fan.

However, he brings up a good point; why does everyone have to make such a big fuss about her screaming; it is obvious she's an intense player and her 'grunting' adds to the quality of her tennis.

Other players make noises.

Why, just because she's loud is Maria any different? If I was out there playing, I honestly cannot see how this would distract me; not to an extent that it affects my game!

Anyone seen Francesca Schiavone play? she makes the most ridiculous shreik when se serves the 1000th of a second before she hits the ball. She is FAR more distracting than I've ever thought Maria could possibly be. - Basically its a louder, nicer version of the noise Serena makes.

Why has this one incident turned you into someone who hates Maria so much? I'm guessing you WERE a fan. Was the disappointment soooooo great that all your rationality has disappeared??? :tape:
