Yesterday we saw Maria throwing some shade at Victoria but of course everything change if we are talking about her lover


“It’s tough in terms of Serena playing six matches in eight days and only one day off coming here,” said Sharapova. “It’s difficult to play and when you have five or six matches because she didn't have a bye - and it doesn't matter who it is - it is challenging. I was in her position also here and it’s a tough position because you get yourself into that position and you just want to be healthy.”

So Maria slams Azarenka for playing when she is not healthy, but defends Serena because she has had to play a lot recently. Didn't Serena struggle with some injury against Petrova? And didn't she continue on to play there too? Azarenka also has had to play non-stop recently because she's been reaching finals in every other tournament bar Miami. Maria's dig towards Azarenka also applies to Serena and her defense of Serena applies to Azarenka too, in a way.

I dunno but I just don't like what Maria's trying to say here. :shrug: All we know for sure now is that she clearly despises Vika. :lol:

There is your part 1 answer,

Part 2 answer: Maria has recently engaged ins a detente with Serena, she wants to make sure that Serena knows she meant it.

I don't see the contradiction. This is in line with what Maria was saying - put your health first, don't play. So, she is supporting Serena taking care of her health. :shrug:

Maria disagreed with Vika on blaming WTA rules for having to play a match when she didn't want to for the sake of points, not for not-playing. She threw in some shade re: injury, sure, but that was to make a point that because Vika schedules so much more and then withdraws.

Just my $0.02.

Vincey!
May 19th, 2012, 07:11 PM
Once again Maria's right :shrug: Serena's record has showed that she needs time to rest and it's alot of matches for her in the past month. We all know that Sharapova might not love Serena but she respects her. Vika is a totally different player with a totally different background. Serena didn't complain about the rules nor did she say she didn't want to come play here in the first place. She doesn't have a retirement for no particular reason background either.

stromatolite
May 19th, 2012, 07:29 PM
Pity, because she was spot on in her comments about Vika. Serena's withdrawal is a bit less cynical than Vika's, but all the same it's obvious she had no intention of playing the whole tournament. She just wanted to get a few red clay matches ahead of RG, and basically treated the Rome tournament as an extended practice session. Like Vika she should have committed to playing the whole week or not played at all. Maria shouldn't be making excuses for her any more than she did for Vika.

Sharapova was criticizing Azarenka's attitude, that your ranking is more important than your body. She said listening to your body is the most important thing. That is exactly what Serena is doing now. So there are no contradictions, no hypocrisy. Azarenka simply is a dumb wench and Sharapova and Serena true professionals who care for the sport.

s teddy
May 19th, 2012, 07:39 PM
Azarenka withdrew after one match solely to preserve her ranking and prize money, while Serena withdrew after several matches so that (presumably) she could rest for Roland Garros. Those are completely different situations, so I don't see how what Maria said was hypocritical. Besides, I'm certain that some ambitious reporter asked her that question just to see if she would say something that could be seen as hypocritical. How do Maria's haters think she should have replied?

May 19th, 2012, 07:42 PM
Well isn't the difference obvious?

Maria thinks its okay for Serena because she was already struggling during her match with Petrova and has played a lot, whereas it's not okay for Vika because Maria thinks she's "faking" her injury and regards ranking and points more important

I don't see any contradiction here

I don't think that was it at all. What Maria was criticizing was that Azarenka played while injured just so that she wouldn't lose ranking points.

Exactly. And Maria just being consistent in saying that Serena was right to not risk her health since she (Serena) apparently thought there WAS some risk.

The main difference is Serena is 30 years old, African-American and covers a different demographic than Sharapova. Meanwhile Azarenka is three years younger than Sharapova. Azarenka is also "Russian-American". Azarenka is also blonde and screams. She is also the current #1 and has won a Slam in the last four years. At the least Vika hurts Sharapova´s negotiation power with Nike. Wozniacki and Ivanovic are stuck with Adidas, Na Li is a different demographic. Radwanska and Stosur are not very marketable. Azarenka is the only and biggest threat to the Sharapova endorsement empire. ;)

If Nike decides to throw their full marketing machine behind Azarenka and as a result Sharapova´s endorsement income shrinks from 70 million to 40 million a year, you think Sharapova finds that amusing? Nike don´t pay for 2nd best.

And you guys have been saying this for many years now but Sharapova still remains Nike favorite and that's never gonna change no matter how many titles Vika wins. Maria will always be the better seller even if she wins nothing, like I said it happened before.

No they are not the same person and Azarenka is not three years younger than Sharapova. Azarenka is better on hardcourt but Sharapova definitely has the edge on clay so the difference is not that big. And your theory is naive as well. I couldn't care less about how many endorsements each of them has but if Nike decides to focus on Azarenka, they should have done it by now 'cause nobody knows which kind of form she'll present in some months. Have Nike done it yet?
And Sharapova has been successful for years when it comes to endorments even in the years when she sucked badly. Even Serena couldn't outdo her in that department. And to my knowledge to gain endorments you need not only results on court but also a "face" which Azarenka arguably doesn't have.
And last but not least, you're on of my favourite posters on this board but your hate-filled nonsense about Sharapova lately is just childish. :)

Far from it thanks :lol: In marketing, you need the whole package and Azarenka certainly lacks in several departments. Just take her outspoken bratty comments for example, someone ought to tell the girl how to handle herself properly rather than bitching about WTA rules that are the same for everyone :tape:

Other players say bad, poor, ill-advising comment, but many of their fan make excuse after excuse for her. I am thinking if we give Viktoria another few years to mature, we ALL SEE a total different player/person. Alas by then, you could also have a new #1, making comment to upset many.

Wait, what?

Pushniacki is definitely a better choice than her and never really made much shitty comments to upset any when she was #1 (I'm sure she did some here and there so can't say none). You either know what to say or you don't know. Your parents, peers and teachers taught you manners and logic long before you are 18 and if you don't know how to control yourself (even to an extent), you are definitely going to be the target.

I know you are a hardcore Azarenka stan but you just cannot seriously believe this. Vikaria a threat to Maria endorsements/money wise. :spit:

First of all, Vikaria has a decent English but there is still a shred of accent. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but Maria fits the "conventionally pretty" category as to Vikaria not so much. Moreover, Maria has the "Cinderella" back story and burst into the scene at a very young age. Sharapova is the American dream fulfilled. Not to mention the huge difference at the way they both handle themselves in public + on court.

About the Nike deal, I am not sure you are able to grasp it but anyway. Maria is actually designing for the company, has her own line and get a considerate percent of its sales. Most probably her line will go on even after she retires. Vikaria probably gets less than Na.

All in all, Maria Sharapova is a household name, she transcends tennis and is known by the general public. Nobody has heard of Azarenka unless they watch tennis.

Pardon me. I don't mean to be angry at you. I just not very well. I did not get very much sleeping in the evening. I am very unwell recently. My doctor says that.....Sorry, I'm for sure you don't wish listening to my problems. OK

Tennis related: You know not ALL people are perfect at 18, or in control. Even now, some people say things and think back in five year time and wish they had not. Are all our sporting heroes so perfect? Are all our heroes FLAWLESS, no!? You know something!? I am not even fan of Viktoria.

Can't see Azarenka becoming a threat to Sharapova's endorsements...if even Serena acomplished as she is, can't compete with Sharapova..:shrug:

I missed the action on TF...so what's all this about :confused:

I couldn't understand what was the necessity for Maria to open her mouth in the first place :o Every player has the right to withdraw from any event on valid grounds so WTA #1 doesn't need Maria's approval. Oh BTW, it happens in most of the sports so what's the big deal about it?

I strongly suspect Maria is whining like a puppy because she's jealous of #1 tag. I don't think she could get that easily unless Azarenka goes out of action for months. I'm neither a fan of any nor hate any player but when I read such noise it's so annoying and unprofessional be it Nadal mocking incident or immature comments on WTA #1...

Perhaps this is destined to happen? We all know what's happening with Aga, now Tennis lovers could expect the change in priorities for #1 to shut Maria'a mouth :p

Players were liking a nice slam less no 1 than vika who is rubbing others the wrong way. But it makes womens tennis more interesting.

:facepalm: I often wonder how many people on her bother to read things through and comprehend before forming an opinion.

What Sharapova said about Azarenka = "it's self-defeating to put the WTA rules above keeping yourself healthy and in peak condition"

What Sharapova said about S.Williams = "I support her putting her health and peak condition first"

IOW her comments in each case were based on the same principle.


It's kinda scary to observe how blatantly and regularly people will distort things to fill their need for drama.
