Ipek Senoglu interviewed in a newspaper in Turkey and asked every question.

Q : How did u start tennis ?

A : I started playing tennis when i was 4-5. My bro and dad were playing and i wanted to bother them so i was running in the court with a racket to stop their game :)

Q : Did you forecast that you would reach that position ?

A : This position is not the position where i wanted to reach. Firstly, i wanted to play in a Grandslam and succeeded it. Then i put other objectives. Now i am planning to play in SF or F in Grandslam and wants Turkish people to wake uo at night ( 4 o'clock) and watch me .

Q : We know that you educated in USA. What is the differences between USA and Turkey about the view of Sport ?

A : USA makes a lot of investment to sport. So they have a lot of players. Originally, thereis no diference. I mean The dont have more ability.

Q : Do u get some inviations from abroad ?

A : Yes. This year an Ameican club invited me to play there. I havesome problems with money. So i decided to accept. But then Turkish prime ministery promised me to find a sponsor. So if they do, i will stay here.

Q :Whu didnt u play in USA more years ?

A: I reached no 1 in USA universities, they wanted me to be USA citizen and leave Turkish citizenship. But i didnt accept this. Since I want to help Turk players. Now Pemra and Įağla are coming after me. They have to get nore support btw.

Q: You now that People see women players as a sex obje. For example Maria Sharapova's pictures are everywhere.

A : We should ask this to the nesapapers, TVs, etc.

Q : Are u sad for that ?

A : Sharapova made better agreement than other good players with Nike due to her physical position. This is done by the brands. Both being successfull and Being a brand. Steffi Grafis a brand with everything. Sharapova is also a brand but i dont think she is champion and she never has a championship character.

Q : Is tennis a rich sport ?

A : Now in Turkey, itis yes. But in the world some por people also play tennis. I played in India. I saw people who cannot afforf for meal, but plays tennis. Thay have a lot of courts.

i donīt like it when people change her citizenship
and i like it when players represent different countries and it would be nice if Turkey could have a top200 or even top100 player

no offense to the #1 player in USA unversities :p , but Maria - non-champion - is a bigger champion that you ever will. :rolleyes:

Giving these comments dont mean that a person stupid. She doesnt say that she is the best. She also says that Steffi Graf is wonderful with everything. Did u meet with Sharapova ? Surely she met and talked so she did this.

I wouldn't have even responded if she said the same about Graf. That would have showed that she is not only occasionally stupid, but plain idiotic and wasted money (ton of it) on her eduction as logic something she is not familiar with.

I dont know whether she is stupid. If she is, probably USA club bosses are also stupid to get her into their clubs and universities.

Think about this: how can someone win numerous tournaments and Wimbledon without having a champions character? Some people say that this is Maria's best asset. And then we hear this...

I wouldn't have had any problems with Senoglu saying that Maria is in this game for the money (as I believe all them are even if they say the opposite) ir that Maria sucks at the net or that her footwork is thrid rates, but to say that she doesn't have a champions character... oh well
