Sharapova was booed after quitting. (AP)



Umm.. .I certainly hope not. From what I understand, she had her chest and leg wrapped up. What exactly was the crowd expecting from her? I'm REALLY hoping this is not true. If so, it doesn't bode well for Beijing's Slam chances.

Injured Sharapova quits during Beijing semifinal
9/24/2005 12:06:00 PM


BEIJING (AP) - Maria Sharapova quit because of a chest injury while trailing in the China Open semifinals Saturday, sending Russia's Maria Kirilenko into the title match against Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld.

Kirilenko, ranked 45th, was ahead 6-4, 2-1 and ``very surprised'' when Sharapova stopped. The decision by the top-ranked Russian prompted boos from the crowd at a tournament beset by injuries.
Sharapova said a muscle on the right side of her chest is inflamed, causing recurring pain. The problem began in Zurich, Switzerland, last October, and she said a switch to heavier balls in that tournament may have been a factor.

The pain ``comes on unexpectedly from day to day,'' she said. ``It's very mysterious.''

Sharapova said her father, also her coach, decided to end the match Saturday.

``I'm very disappointed, obviously,'' she said. ``With every shot, with every forehand and serve I hit, it got worse and worse.''

Groenefeld defeated Poland's Marta Domachowska 7-5, 6-3 in the other semifinal. The big-serving Groenefeld, ranked 30th, won the double's championship in Bali last week. Groenefeld and Kirilenko and will be going for a first WTA singles title.

Sharapova's pullout followed injuries to Serena and Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport.

Davenport withdrew before the tournament because of a lower back strain. Venus Williams pulled out before her quarterfinal because of a leg injury. Defending champion Serena Williams lost in the second round to China's Sun Tiantian and attributed her poor play to an ailing leg.

You're "REALLY hoping this is not true"? :confused: Why, exactly? It's certainly not the first time a crowd already pissed because of the withdrawal of top players has booed yet another retirement. I doubt Maria was upset by it - her injury is what's really bothering her.

I am going to watch the tape again, but from what i heard she wasn't booed by most of the crowd. :rolleyes:

Secondly, I know that the ITF is scrutinizing the Chinese tennis Federation because there is talk of them wanting to have the "5th Slam." In other words, I think they're walking a thin line. Booing Maria Sharapova doesn't really help their chances.

this is true. And if i am mistaken and everyone booed, they certainly had a reason to. Lindsay withdrew (#2 seed), Venus withdrew (#3 seed), and Serena lost (#4 seed). Now, if the #1 seed withdrew, i would certainly be upset if i paid to go to this tournament and the top 3 seeds al withdrew, and #4 lost. Its pretty bad when i a Tier II tournament with the 4 seeds all in the top 10 and you've got a 45 vs. 30, Groenefeld vs. Kirilenko final (no offense to them)

no one is scrutinizing you, we are just confused at why you think this is such a bad thing. I mean, the tournament is a Tier II, had 4 people in the top 10, and the top 3 seeds all withdrew with injuries. I'm sure the fans that paid to go see that match must have been pretty upset...

i'm not saying they did. What i'm saying is, if i paid a lot of money to go watch a match in my home city/country between the top seed and a player hwo is potentially dangerous, and the top player retired down a set and 2-1, i sure as hell would not be excited for Maria K. I would be pissed that i wasted my money to go see yet another top 3 seed withdraw from the tournament in my home country which only happens once a year! This tournament is like a big thing for Beijing, and this year they actually had a lot of top players, and for them to withdraw would sure piss me off. I know that they are injured and couldn't help it, but i would still be mad not necessarily at them but just mad period.

are you always this stupid or do you get worse on Saturdays? :confused:

so, if a player wasn't injured from the beginning of the tournament, then she can be injured at all?

Also, injured players are only allowed to pull out if they are winning.

What kind of idiot are you?

Really, it looks like because your favourite is Dementieva you need to get a dig at Maria at every chance, it would be pathetic if the player was doing it, but doing it because you feel she is competing with your favourite? that's way beyond pathetic (note, it's not based on this post but all the rubbish you continuosly post about Maria).

Note 2: nothing to do with Elena Dementieva, it's not her fault if some of her fans are assholes.

hmm, the bitterness,

so, let's say, people are allowed to boo Maria, Venus, Serena, Lindsay, Justine, Kim, Mary, Amelie, Myskina, Dementieva, am I missing a privileged millionnaire?


People were just dissapointed to see a match end abruptly like this, a couple of them booed... No big deal.

right, I haven't been to China but there are quite a few chinese living in Toronto and I work with some of them.

That idea of people being polite and courteous applies to the Japanese, and people extend it to all Asians.

Actually, in my personal experience (that doesn't mean it's true for everyone), I found a lot easier to deal with people form Hong Kong than from mainland China, I wouldn't say they are rude, but obviously they have different standards on how to relate to people (at least the ones I've met) and it's just different.

Probably in Hong Kong they are more influenced by the British ruling and have more western style behaviour.

I've met a few from Taiwan, and they are sort of in between.

But it was the final match of the day and ended early, just when it looked to be becoming interesting as Masha S won a game to make the score 1-2. Most of them wouldn't have seen the taping on maria's chest, or her expression. Nor would they have known Maria wasn't playing her normal game. All they saw was Maria call the trainer, then concede.

I suggest you look up the meaning of the word stereotype.

I am not speaking from what people generally think, but rather from my own personal experience, if you believe that you know my life and my experiences better than me, then you really have a problem.

Maybe you are unable to understand, but all I've said is that the Chinese people that I have met is far away from the stereotype that people have of Asian people in general, and that is mostly fed by the way most Japanese are, at least when they deal with westerners.

I am not saying they are worse, or better, only that they are different, they have a different culture, not better, not worse, just different, I feel that and I am sure they feel the same about us.

Maria is "waif like"??? :lol: You should stand next to her sometime.

That's not my definition of waif like. She's got a strong athletic body with broad shoulders, muscled arms and legs. Granted, she's not got the best legs for tennis. I'd vote Dementieva as having the best legs for tennis because of those strong thighs and because her torso and thighs are proportionate.
