I think that's just her personality... people used to think Hingis' erm, "issues" were age related too, but she never really grew out of them... I expect the same of Maria ;)

I would tend to agree. She IS only 17. She was awful intense but a little grace in handling the situation (an obviously injured opponent) would have been nice to see.

Hopefully being tacky and not even mentioning your opponent and their effort in a match isn't the symptom of a 17yrd old. That was horrible.

Again, I think that it's just from exhaustion. It just shows you how much a year on the tour can wear you out. SHe looked more relieved to win than excited. At wimbledon, it was pure excitement. Here, it looked like relief.

playing passively and not getting into the match wasn't doing much for her... :rolleyes:
some of you would have only been happy if maria would have lost meekly, but guess what, didn't happen.

Thats true, what she should of said is:

"Serena played at her very best today and gave a great effort, fortunately I was still able to win despite the fact that I only played at about 20% of my best"

That's fine. Because even injured Serena still almost took the title. Attempt wit, it doesn't change the result nor the fact that Maria was tacky and classless today.

No what she said was "I wore her down". If that's not the stupidest thing I've ever heard. :rolleyes: That's like kicking a dog when they are down. Far worse than saying I only played at about 20%. But, you be the judge.

yeah. she's kinda ditsy at times and cocky, but we have to remember she's only a teen. every teen goes through that phase when they've achieved so much at a young age. hopefully, she's grow out of it as she matures over the years. :)

Imagine if they removed all the handlers, all the PC image consultants--the one's who told every tennis player to wave like prom queens to the clapping fans--and let these players be themselves. I betcha we'd see a whole host of nasty, bratty young women with nothing but attitude. Thing is, at least then we'd KNOW who's real & who's not! Go Clijsters, a true queen of the court of grace and perspective.

Geez, take a chill pill. I was implying to the starter of this thread that Maria (goofy or not) was *the winner* of the YEC. She sure will look goofy delivering that million dollar paycheck to the bank in her new ride...

SHARAPOVA 'ON ANOTHER PLANET'

Maria Sharapova's rapid ascent to becoming the hottest property in women's tennis has clearly not gone down well with everyone.

The newly-crowned WTA Tour champion has not impressed France's Marion Bartoli.

"She doesn't really speak to anyone," said the world number 41.

"When you pass on front of her it's as if you don't exist, you're invisible, especially now.

"It's crazy because I remember really well having played her last year in doubles in Quebec. She was quite nice. She chatted. We ate together a few times.

"The following year she has gone onto another planet."

I would imagine that two thirds of your childhood stolen from you so that you can be on court eight hours a day instead of experimenting with drugs and alcohol and abortions like normal teenagers kind of limits your potential to have anything interesting to say.

Well said Jon.

And maybe Masha's changing and becoming withdrawn. It's possible. But how would Marion Bartoli know that Sharapova doesn't speak to anyone since Bartoli is onlyn 1 person? :confused: It's possible Sharapova talks to other players when Bartoli isn't around. ;) I know Maria doesn't want to be like Anna Kournikova. But Anna went through this too. Adjusting to fame can indeed be tricky.

More drivel :rolleyes:

Perhaps Bartoli should have said "Congratulatins" - or even "Hello" to Maria - rather than "passing in front of her"????

You know Maria might have thought SHE was being stand-offish?

I agree...

Either Bartoli is just JEALOUS or simply want to achieve "a minute" of fame by using Maria Sharapova. :o

thank goodness they have the old article out again. of course updated it with a new player and another player complaining

one thing is sure though it's definitely a credit when you are the center of this famous article :lol:

Maria: "Boy, I sure was goofy back then. What have we decided to do with that extra 10 billion we cleared last month?"

Williams fans need to get a grip. Maria won, Serena lost. Move on. There's always next year.

Others should also get a grip. Stop analyzing every single thing Sharapova does and looking for proof she is a bad person, or her father is a bad person, or tennis is ruining her.

She doesn't seem so ruined to me. Besides, all of your tacky criticism is basically and effort to distract from her accomplishments on the tennis court. She won Wimbledon, over Serena, and she won the year end championships over the same opponent.

YOu can't change those facts, so stop worrying about her speeches or who she does or does not talk to off court.

For heavenshakes, nobody ever engaged in more tacky behavior than the Williams clan. I didn't see Sharapova's father holding up signs in the stands, or doing a dance on court, or demanding a share of the WTA profits go to his daughter.

And so far, Sharapova has NOT proclaimed how much she loves herself. Only a Williams could come up with that kind of embarassing effort to keep herself in the spotlight.

Yeah, and just like you can criticize the Williams sisters for any and every little thing, Mr. Hypocrite. Maria can too be criticized. Oh, but that's right. She's white and blond, therefore nothing should be said to her or about her. She's such a fragile little precious flower. Of course she does nothing wrong. :rolleyes:
