Apparently during the fifth game in the second set, when the score was 30-30, her father was heard yelling instructins to her, which is a no-no and she was given a warning by the chair umpire. Myskina said that her father always does that and that most coaches do. Sharapova said she didn't hear what her father was saying.

I knew there was a reason a didn't like her father, other than the fact that he looks creepy.

Yuri seems like someone who is too overly ambitious. He's going to push Maria too far I fear. Hopefully Maria can learn to grow away from her father and not get too attached. I mean, I know it sounds weird but there's something about an ambitious father and a 17 year old daughter that worries me. Sometimes it's difficult for coaches to remember to keep their mouth shut. They try to just yell out things like, "topspin maria, topspin" which are things that any fan could basically shut out. I never understood, what exactly counts as coaching? Does it have to be from the player's coach to be considered as coaching? If so, then the coach can just have a friend sit somewhere close to the court and act like a fan just screaming out random tips to the player.

LizChris, are u getting these things from an interview? Do you have a full transcript of Myskina's and Maria's interviews or something?

This has become a fairly regular occurance lately...:(
It usually happens at times in the match when Maria could really do with out the distraction..

She actually was given warnings some time during the indoor season, so it happens quite frequently.

Again, Yuri is too ambitious.

if you ever, I mean EVER, watched any pro tennis match, you'd know that it happens ALL the time.

shouldn't the warning give to her damn dad but not Masha?It was given to Yuri...but ultimately the punishment is given to Masha who is distracted further and would instantly have a point given to her opponent if it continued :)

Ok where's the deluge of derisive comments against Masha??

Isn't that what Justine received in IW when she was given a similar warning against Sveta.

she always does it, it's so fucking annoying, if she has the ability to win a SLAM, surely she has the ability to go through some matches without looking to yuri :rolleyes:

They really should do something about it......it seems like every match you hear Maria got coached during the match.

For one thing her dad is NOT her coach,
you are allowed Encouragement, there is a big big difference (although some would say little)
whats next your coach not allowed to clap or even nod his head ?????


just cos you encourage in a diff language dont mean you are coaching
in Zurich she was warned cos he said "come on" :rolleyes:


thats how pathetic its getting :o
Every match i've seen, there's always coach/player interactivity going on.

Off course it happens all the time! ;)
In Moscow during Chakvetadze - Safina match I was sitting right behind both coaches, and they were giving advises left & right! ;)

BTW, Maria also recieved a warning during US Open! I'm surprised they do it to Masha so often.

Maria looks at her camp too often, so any thing they do while she's looking at them could be given against her, thats another reason.

Many players know where their camp is sitting and recognise their voice and without looking at them, that its aimed her her.
Masha gives it away, she'll learn.

Maria dad also gets too animated, another flaw, although he's been less so last few weeks.

As much as I like Serena Williams, it seemed to me that, at times, Richard would be having a full fledged conversation with her from the front row. .. . .LOL!!!!!

Probably because her Dad doesn't knwo how to do it discretly (which means he's not that clever a coach compared to other players'). However, it's kinda stupid to do coaching to Maria, she's so talented that she always finds out from herself what to do, her problem is that sometimes she just can't do it (first serve, forehand).

In fact I think Masha's biggest flaw at this point is that, tall as she is, sometimes when getting a little bit tired, she lacks of balance and yet can't bend her knees enough on low ball bounces. It takes some time for tall girls to find a good balance and a permanently proper footwork (see Venus or Lindsay). And this, you don't fix it with coaching, you just need to wait like 2 or 3 years.

About time something happened

Yuri's reactions and the way he is pisses me off it's so annoying :rolleyes:

The only time it was reasonable was when Sharapova won Wimbledon :p

There has never been anything wrong with Lindsay's footwork, she may be a bit slow but her footwork is spot on, which is why she's the cleanest striker of the ball in womens tennis.

Players should be allowed to have coaching between games. I can only imagine how differently the rankings would be if tennis players were allowed to receiving coaching like athletes in other sports do.

According to the commentary after losing the first set Maria was talking to her Dad in the break asking what she could do. The warning came way later for something in a game which by definition must have been slighter. If they are going to enforce the rule it would help if they did it consistently. If its going on all the time there's not much point in ignoring it most of the time and mentioning it once. If you are ignoring it why mention it when the second set was in the balance.

The way he says 'Come On' is very distracting to the opponent and he only says it at certain points. He would'nt say it at 2-2 15-15 would he.

I really hope Maria didn't hear her because that would suck for Myskina.

Creepy ? It's not strong enough :scared: I mean, I know I sound like a total Masha hater these days (I've gotta say I don't like her very much), but her father is worse... He looks like a maniac!
