Michael Joyce also told Maria that "She plays like a psycho, but you don't play like a psycho." And he tells Maria to "run Alona around and she will die" :tape:

LOL, Maria kept doing amortis followed by lobs during the match probably to make Alona run.

I think it was great from joyce to do this. It made Maria relax because she still seemed very upset about the bathroom situation. It seemed to relax her and he was right she was acting crazy and maria is much more mentally tough than her. Bonderanko also was very tired so it was a good cnfidence boost for Maria. He has helped her many times by going on court so i'm sure he knows what hes doing.By the way where is Yuri?

Maria did state earlier this year that Yuri won't be with her at all of the tournaments she plays in. He wasn't with her when she was in Qatar either.

Oh, no. According to one article on GM she is a "savage", "wild child", "blood-sucking banshee". There was no mention of "psycho".

Actually, a "shrieking banshee" would have been more correct. Vampires are not among the elements of Celtic mythology.

During the coaching between sets. Both players had their coaches come to court side. The TV coverage focused on Pova and Michael because it was in English.

I didn't know before that Joyce is as :rolleyes: and :weirdo: as Pova's unclassy Daddy. :tape:

Develop a sense of humor, Matt!

Concerning Yuri: the only time he is seen is at matches supporting his daughter. Cameramen catch him at tournaments intensely supporting his kid and focused only on her. He doesn't give interviews, he doesn't make forecasts, he doesn't attempt to explain his actions, he doesn't seek out media attention of any kind. When pressed and hounded by the media, at the very most he tells them to talk to Pova. For all of these reasons, I think he's a class act.

That's all that's known about Yuri. Not much to go on. So, fantasize all you want, you have no facts on which to base them.

Yuri's nauseating gesture after his daughter beat Henin at AO is a fact, not an opinion. :kiss:

I met Yuri and Michael during the Australian open when I was walking to Vodafone arena. Michael held open a door for me and I smiled and said good luck to him, and he asked me if i was supporting maria. When i said yes (rather enthusiastically), he smiled and said thats what we wanna hear! And Yuri smiled at me and said thanks for coming.

this was litterally like 5 minutes before the dementieva match. I expected them both to be cold and nervous but they were really really nice. Yuri might get carried away during matches, but he seemed nice enough to me.

Maria herself agrees with you as she said "I'm a tough psycho".

It was quite the amusing on-court coaching session.

Bondarenko ACTS like a psycho. Her on-court behaviour is mildly entertaining at first, but then verges on disturbing :unsure:.

:lol: Nice little story there. Thanks. Yuri was nice enough to have his picture taken with me. :lol:

:lol: I so wanna see this. I love how Michael can calm Maria down. In between which sets did this exchange take place? And what was the issue with the bathroom break?
