An article called "Russians hail Sharapova" can be found at www.gulf-daily-news.com/story.asp?Article=96829&Sn=SPOR&IssueID=27243 (http://www.gulf-daily-news.com/story.asp?Article=96829&Sn=SPOR&IssueID=27243)

Even though Maria is an Americanized Russian she is gaining respect and admiration in the Motherland for her accomplishments in tennis. :)

I know that newspaper is not run by the other top rusian players because they arent so quick to sing her praises..it should be an even more interesting 2005 :devil:

Come on Myskina, give Sharapova a break. She beat you fair and square and Serena too, twice!!

Myskina has a calf injury. It happens. That's part of sports.

You make a good point Alex. Masha is treated great by the Russian media and that has to really irk Myskina and Dmentieva especially since Masha apparently rarely visits Russia and has never even played the Ladies Kremlin Cup in Moscow. :eek: In a way i can understand their frustration. But the Russian emdia treats Sharapova like she's one of their own. :) Da.

Is that the young lady who won Wimbledon, and has a Monica Seles laugh? ;)

I know Dementieva is indifferent toward Maria, but I thought Myskina was actually a friend of Maria?

Well, I certainly hope she was wearing protection. Here in America, if you go outside in the hail, you can really bruise your head...

Why do you feel the need to rag on Sharapova at every opportunity? Your attempt to disguise it with humour isnít paying dividends.

Yes that's her, Crossing.

Jakeev, I thought Myskina and Sharapova were friends too. And maybe they are. But I have a feeling that Masha has encroached on Myskina's Russina #1 status since Wimbledon and that's why Myskina has possibly given Masha the cold shoulder.

He tries in vain, to present himself as ĎIím everybodyís friend, thereís no one more a free spirit than Ií. Heís just a self obsessed Steffi fan, who is still disgruntled that Monica had her number. And now more so because Maria has SerenaĎs.

Link please :cool: ?

Personally I don't really believe this rumour, There was this pic of the YEC participants and the Porsche in which Maria and Nastya are on a very friendly pose. It's hard to believe that they would be hypocrit enough to take up such a pose if they don't speak to each other.

But Myskina did come out after her loss to Maria, and say very pointedly that maria was not good enough to beat Serena.

Something like that might produce a little friction.

All TR.net says is that Sharapova and Myskina aren't on speaking terms. But there is no proof of that.
