Maria is there to support the team. I've seen Amelie do that for France.

This isn't news, she already said she wasn't gonna play. At least she's there supporting the team and practicing with them.

"After her practice session, Chakvetadze said it would be wrong for Sharapova to play against Italy because she did not help Russia reach the final."

EW, that's not team spirit. Anna C, you :cat:

It's only fair. Good on her for supporting the team though.

Difference is that Amelie actually played (and won) the Fed cup for France.Anyway, even if Russia is a big team with good players, they won't say no to Sharapova forever.They'll need her at one time.

I predict that Anna and Maria will eventually be friends.

Yes but i think i remember Amelie actually playing for France once or twice. This is another press op for Maria where she can help out her image much like with the Djokovic fiasco.

I wouldn't be surprised if she sneaks in an unrelated photo shoot while she's there.

and yes it's also possible that i'm just a cynical prick and Maria really is the angel some people like to think she is.

There are other ways to get publicity than spending the week with Shamil

would you please change the thread into Sharapova'll not play the final ,
and I know that the haters will take the worst from any thing she does , and Anna still young but she's sensetive girl that'll be okay with Masha after short time .

This issue has been beaten to death.... resurrected...then beaten to death again. I think we've all had enough.
Let's just let the Russian Fed Cup/Olympic team do what they want and let Sharapova do what she wants and let them be.

IMO, it's great to see Sharapova supporting the team.

switz, I think you are cynical, but I don't mind cynicism. ;)
I sure have done it to other players.

Good on Maria for supporting the team. And bs is right, since when has she been an angel. :p

There's no reason for them to not get along.
Anna's going to make a good living and have a good career.
They are both 20, they might be on the same Fed Cup team a lot.
