Look at her reaction. She was really disappointed and frustrated. Poor Makiri!

Wow! :eek: All the frustration that has built up over the past few months has finally boiled over. I'm glad Makiri showed some emotion out there on the court after a tough loss. I believe it's therapeutic to let out your anger or frustration whether it's by letting out a yell, cranking a tennis ball out of the court, or tossing your racket. ;) It's good that her racket didn't bounce into the crowd! :lol: :bounce: Hopefully she gets back together in Zurich. :)

The emotion is good. I'm glad she finally let it out. She showed nothing after her loss to Rezai at the US Open. This can be a turning point. Hopefully, she will use that emotion to get better. Use that emotion to vow to work harder, to vow to not let it happen again. Maybe, just maybe this reaction will allow her to turn things around

I want Makiri to play passionate tennis. But throwing her racquet dangerously close to the stands and ballboys or linesmen like she did after losing match point to Schiavone in Moscow is not acceptable. :( If she threw her racquet hard against the court near herself I could accept that. But not the way she threw her racquet so close to the crowd. I hope Maria is capable of playing composed yet passionate tennis. But that's not an easy mix for a tennis player to implement into their games.

Cat, I think she wasn't thinking clearly at the moment.

Not being able to snap the losing streak was very frustrating to Maria. But ending with a double fault on top of that is even worse. I understand how she feels. I remember Martina Hingis doing the same thing at AO final after blowing many match points.

Good points Warrior. Shgwiing emotion and anger is one thing. But flinging your racquet near people is unacceptable. If Masha hit a fan she could have been sued or suspended from the WTA Tour. :eek: Fortuntely nothing bad happened when she flung her racquet near the crowd.

I can understand those manifestations if they're under control. It's the case. There was no-one that way.

What I can't understand is the cold handshake. If that can be called a handshake. What does the opponent have to do with slumping?

Interesting perspective #1. I can only imagine that Masha was so crushed by losing that very tough match to Schiavone in Moscow that she temporarily lost control of her emotions and let that affect her handshake.

What concerns me is that when she loses, specially this kind of loss, she just sticks her hand and takes it away quickly. Like she has no consideration for the opponent. And it wasn't just this loss to Schiavone.

(As for your good reps.. sorry but it STILL doesn't let me send one back.)

May also add she was very quick to storm off the court too. The cameras only got a glimpse of her back as she headed off the court after shaking (sort of) Schiavone's hand. :eek:

I think its good to see Masha letting it out like she did. Shows us how much she cares. I play tennis myself and yelling or chunking the raquet after extreamly frustrating times can definately be therupuetic. ;) She'll get things under control, shes a hard worker and a tremendous talent.

I agree with that, but you probably agree with me that the same does NOT apply to not caring about her opponent.

Absolutely. Maria is much more respectable of a person to give such a cold handshake after a match like that. Schiavone gave it her all and pulled it out in the end. Maria should have at least congragulated her in such a hard fought victory.

That's my point too. ;)

I adore Little Masha. :hug: But maybe Makiri is a little bit spoiled and not as good a sport we thought she was. I'm sure the tough losses took a tremendous psychological toll on Masha this year. But I hope she has better attitude next year and shows better sportmanship as well.

I think tiredness was more to blame for that fit of pique. As far as I know, she never did anything like that before. Plus she lost matches too players she would normally beat.You cant blame her for feeling rough about it.

She has too reduce her schedule next year and play as many Tier 3 & 4's as her ranking will allow. This year she just played too much.
