No, she was saying from the begginning of the year, that she'll play there.
Tarpichev several times confirmed it too. ;)

I don't know about that.

Before Wimbledon there was a nasty article about her in paper, they got so many angry mail, the removed it. ;)

And she has more fans then any other on the internet. ;)

But I'd love to see her playing against Nastya/Lena, to see who the crowd we'll be cheering for. :)

you dont think the majority will be for Nastya/Lena? Masha is almost a stranger to the Russian People it seems (in terms of being there etc)

Maria did nothing for Russia yet.
Lena and Nastya live in Moscow. Members of the Fed Cup team.

The crowds will be polite to both players. It won't be like a Davis Cup tie.

Exept for that Nastya's real interview (she really said those things, you know) what other controversial threads I started?

It will be very strange for Maria to play in a foreign country. I hope that she will be allright. Da or is it Nyet?! :devil:

it's amazing to see the bitching at Maria on this thread from trolls who obviously know nothing about her!

You would think such people would find something better to do.

Maria is the Number 1 Russian player and very popular in Russia.

Shvedbarilescu
Jul 13th, 2005, 08:36 PM
I'm sure the crowd will be very supportive of her and root for her as long as she is not up against a Moscow player, particularly Nastya or Elena D. Even then they will be polite and respectful.

She can't play the Tier III. There's a new Gold Exempt rule.

Volcana
Jul 13th, 2005, 09:22 PM
She will get booed! :lol:Nah. She a young, nice looking girl who has insisted all along she's Russian. And she wins. They'll love her. She should have gone last year when she was Wimbledon champ. They'd have gone wild for then.

What I want to see is what happens if she plays their heroine, Myskina, and Myskina calls out Yuri for coaching mid-match. The crowd might turn 'A-gile, HOS-tile and VERS-a-tile'.

If Masha meets Nastya in the final or semis or whatever...Ill kick the russian crowds asses if they dont support Nastya more than Masha. I think Nastya would really looooove to play her in Moscow. I mean even as a fan, Id love to see that.

Not too many big American names
have shown up throughout the years
but you'd had Venus, Monica, Lindsay,
ect....spread out during the last 8 years or so.

Venus & Monica were
top two seeds in 98'.

Venus will be there! :cool:

She's had up and down results there, made
especially tougher for her with it being played
on carpet. Not sure she's liked in Russia,
but she returns time and time again.


97' QF Jana Novotna(1) d. Venus Williams 7-5 6-4
98' SF Mary Pierce(5) d. Venus Williams(1) 2-6 6-2 6-0
02' 2 Magdalena Maleeva d. Venus Williams(1) 2-6 6-1 7-6(3)
04' QF Elena Bovina d. Venus Williams(7) 6-3 6-2

Hopefully this year Venus
can win it! :)

I beg to differ. ;)

Venus/Amelie 02' USO SF.

Venus wasn't getting much love from her home crowd
and you know it's bad when Navy commented on how
embarressing it was to witness.

Maria Croft
Jul 13th, 2005, 10:36 PM
Maria is very popular is Russia, so the crowd will be very happy to see her play there

ok. but Americans are strange.
LA for example. i guess that would be their home crowd.
and if they took up my offer on british residency, Wimbledon would be their home crowd :rocker2:
but in general, there is no better crowd than your home crowd

I'm imagining her making it to the final against Myskina, and doing her speech in Russian, win or lose. And during the speech, Anastasia shouting "WHAT? WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? I CAN'T UNDERSTAND.... YOU'RE ACCENT IS HURTING MY EARS! SPEAK IN RUSSIAN!"
