US fans must love her. Why else would they put Maria's match on primetime in the USA?
It's a Greek vs a Russian, after midnite in Europe.
But the US fans want to see her, more than the Americans.
So she's on at night in the US.

She said it on the USO preview show yesterday, BUT it is only part of what she said. I don't know if there is a link to it, but the rest of what she said was about her liking the different atmosphere. If you saw it as a whole, it was not so bad.

Well,she's right. If you look at the US Open there's always lots of noise,people walking around and in and out of the stadium,etc... And we shouldn't even mention those ear shattering airplanes that fly over every couple of seconds....I don't mind,spectators really get involved in the matches and this chaotic atmosphere makes the US Open different from the other slams,but you can't say that they follow "proper protocol" there. :smoke:

I heard her say it too, on US open preview. She said that Americans were loud and noisy,always standing up during matches, and she didn't think it was proper. Exactly what she said! It's amazing how money and fame after having nothing, suddenly allows you to see others as not being proper.Wonder what she thinks of the French crowd. They should have asked her.:rolleyes:

Helllooooo!!!! Someone finally gets it!!! The reason its not a big media issue is she is blond!!! If Serena or Venus said this the tennis media would be all over them...American tennis fans would be ready to crucify!!! But everyone wants to keep kissing her rear end for no other reason than she is the blond haired hope!!!!! Sick sick sick

Yes I heard her. She wasn't complaining really, it was almost like she was surprised by the way Americans act in the crowds, so she said it with a little giggle. She just said it was different as if she never experienced it before. It wasn't like she was pleased with the behaviour she stated, but she was just stating what she thought about the crowd.

Our german eurosport commentator just said the same about the crowd...and itīs true, come on! This is the US Open, itīs like a tennis rock concert, always been that way and like it or not, it makes the tourney unique. There arenīt a lot of foreign players who love to play the USO, itīs just different. Ever heard a non-American naming the USO as their fave slam?

Be careful....Being honest and thoughtful will get you labeled a Maria Sharapova hater!!! Someone has already called me a hater for simply posting the truth about what she said...No matter how you slice it..Her statement was not respectful of American tennis fans...Maria did not intend it to be respectful nor complimentary.....There is no way to minimize the meaning of her words...She was quite clear.....

Much ado about nothing. What Sharapova said is NOTHING compared to what people here say about her or other players. Why is it ok for "fans" to call players whores,bitches,etc,but as soon as a player says the tiniest thing (and probably quoted out of context at that) it's a major issue? :smoke:

She may not particularly LIKE the noise, but there is a difference between stating the obvious (the USO is noisy and has a lot of distractions, and the crowds are more boisterous than most other non-RG crowds - something that has been noted by others, and at times with pride by some Americans) and "blasting" people.

The only thing "thoughtful" about your post (and thread title) was the thought and effort you put into getting a fight started.

She also said she didn't think that their behavior is proper. :)

I am, but I'm not sure how it applies, since I've never heard Sharapova complain about Richard or any other tennis parent (thought to be honest, I don't pay that much attention to her interviews.

Or were you referring to YOUR comment about HER father?

Are you talking to me? :confused:

If so, I was referring to HER making negative comments about the USO attendants and their behavior, knowing that her father behaved very badly and improper at the YEC in LA last year. That's what I mean by people living in glass houses.

I really could care less that she said it, because who cares what she thinks. But, by the same token, I don't think she has room to talk about anyone's behavior at a tennis event.

It's just that some posters don't behave in the same way that they expect from the players that makes me roll my eyes every now and then. They are ever so eager to say nasty things about players while the things they themselves are used to saying are often much worse. I mean,"American crowds are loud and don't behave properly",how does that compare as a statement with "Sharapova (or any other player) is a bitch,whore,bimbo,stupid,etc..". :smoke:

Like I said, I don't really care what she thinks about American anything. It is the "American Market" that loves her and is bowing and kissing her feet. So, I think that they are the ones who should be :speakles: at her comment, hoping it doesn't get out to the public at large. The only thing that bothered me was that she is fully aware of her father's behavior at the YEC last year, from running onto the court, to cursing out a fan and then she criticizes the behavior of the American fans at the USO for improper behavior? :retard: When I heard her say it, I just :rolleyes: You wanna talk about hypocrisy? Oh, but I forgot, she's only 18. She'll learn, I guess. :rolleyes:

Where did you hear that? Must have been something different from the USO Preview Show. I don't doubt she said it, but the thread starter didn't make it up. Several of us heard it. But, you don't have to take my word for it and I suggest you don't, because I am a proud Sharapova hater.:p But, some others who heard it are indifferent and have no motive to make it up. :shrug:

ok heres the deal, and im by no means a sharapova fan the overexposure is too much for me, but she is 1000% correct....i was standing next to a guy during the arnaud-udomchoke final round qualy match and he was chatting on his phone loudly during the third set tiebreak and in the outer courts people just go through them during points without any regard for the match going on talking amongst themselves, banging on the metal benches, dropping crap, not even having any idea who the players are, are and thats before the airplanes flying over....its a mess if you really think of it....i can see why people would hate playing here cause the tennis etiquite here is zero...thats the facts

I think it depends how she put across. If you could tell from how she said it that she ment it in a derogratory way then obviously that is rude. But, if she ment it as a statement without malice then i dont see the problem.
Like I said, I don't care that she said it. She just said it so arrogantly, in light of her father's behavior at the YEC last year.

I'm sorry if this bullshyt happens to be true then maybe she shouldn't bite the hand that's feeding her. Compared to French crowds American crowds are quiet reserved.
One thing American crowds don't like is a fake and they can see through a person a mile away. That's why they wanted Lindsay to beat Sharapova love and love at Pacific Life. She got embarassed oh well. Stop trying to be in a media purgatory with Europe, America, and Mother Russia.
I fell asleep at Sharapova's match during the Advanta Championships last year. Noone woke me up except for Sharapova's grunting. So if anyone is loud she is.

We ARE loud. But we shut up before the serve, and we don't (anymore than anyone else) shout at the players and try to distract them during points. Some places, they're prety quiet all the time except polite applause. We are what we are. Nobody ever talks about how 'shy and retiring' the average American is.

I agree because the fans in the stands are from a melting pot of people and culture from all over the world. You have your French, your English, your Australians, Greek, Indian and then you have your American. Alot of culture actually cheer loud and get boisterious during sporting events. I mean this slam when it comes to the fanbase is the most diversified of them all and you will get noise, PLENTY of noise.

When you quote someone you need to consider in what way the comment was made, light-hearted, joking, sarcastic? That's the problem with just looking at the words spoken, one of the limits of written communication :)


Hater never knew a "lighthearted" comment from someone they hate...

like whatever trash they could find, throw it to her....

Why is this such a big deal? Shit who the hell cares. If anyone else said it, no one would even care. But since Maria says it, everyone is jumping on her for saying it. I guess that's what you get for being a celebrity. Venus, Serena, and Maria are the only ones who get attacked for saying such things. If Davenport or Clijsters said it, everyone would be like, "omg it's so true, I love them and want to kiss their feet."

Some people appear so stunned that Maria could utter such words. This puzzles me - considering how rude she has been on and off court. The manner in which she behaved at the YEC towards and injured Serena, how she has on many occassion using aggressive body language told the crowd to shut up - how she snubbed fans of autographs in dubai (she just waved her hands - as though the kids stand in Doha one day).

There's something nasty about her behaviour SOMETIMES. But because she's 'cute' and blonde - like many psychological studies have shown - a blind eye is turned. Just call her fiesty (postitive / fiery). If this was Svetlana, or someone who looks like Molik - the word would be 'rude'.

Yet I heard so many, "Hell Yeah" about her losing to Eleni, and even though Maria was fearful of her injury having a renaissance on her, she still went I and OWNED all the haters tonight. You lose. Don't be so sore.

If Maria is the number one seed is because she is too good, or Lindsay, AMelie, Kim, Justine, Serena, Venus, LenaD, Svetlana, Patty, or anyone else I forgot to mentioned suck compared to her.

Pseudoreality!?! My argument was based on REAL observations. They are minor to you, probably because you're a fan. It's no secret that i'm not, but i'm also no hater. That qualifies me as unbiased :P (really). Unbiased observations - IMO have shown her to be rude. Minor things add up, to build a bigger picture.

I mean, if you have heard her life story, psychologically speaking - there is likely to be something nasty about the whole thing. I believe she IS rude, but mostly because of bad influences and experiences.

I am a common man. I misjudge people, and I don't read between the lines. Forgive my inmaturity. I thought you were another troll.



By the way, how was she rude?

In my personal philosophy, I believe all humans live under two sets of ethics. Personal ethics, and gaming ethics.

Tell me.

In tennis, is it alright to bluff and fake that you are going to shot a crosscourt forehand, while you really are going to do a forehand straight down the line?

When racing, is it alright to make good use of your opponents weakness which is run slower than you, to pass him and beat them?

These things are really alright. These sets of rules are gaming ethics. It is honest to do these things. You from the moment you compete you agreed to do your best top give as much competition to your opponent.

Now you mean she is rude, when she goes wildly with her C'mon!

I don't think so. Naturally she has isolated herself and trancended to an stated where everything is gone, and all the thing she can do is play all she knows, but the most important part is keeping the fighting spirit on.

She agreed in that final to be under those rules of ethics.

If your oppoent missed you are not really cheering for the negative otucome of your oppoent, but for your resitance. In that big rally, she was there, she stayed there, and then comes the UE, goodness, what a reward she stayed on.

Now the crowd is different. They came to spectate this competition, they are not part of it. Thus they are under personal ethics. Many fans try to distract whom they are not cheering for so the outcome of these fans' favorites is positive. Yet, they are intruding.

There is a fineline of enjoyment for what is happening, or interacting with what is happning hoping for a crossing back to side of enjoyment.

Is it fair and right that I yell negative, and vulgar things to whom I dearly hate? Of course not. You are here to enjoy the competition, no matter what happens. Afterall, you should have no say whatsoever in what is happening.

Is it really nice to celebrate the injury of whom you dearly hate? Not really cause the show is over, and afterall, you waste your money, and your not really helping your favourite by sublimanlly telling that your favorite is gratly victorius, when afterall, the competition becomes unfair.

Maria telling the crowd not to shut up but to be reverent is the least she can expect. Things really become unfair, and there is nothing like seeing two true fighters giving it all for the sake of competition.

Maria behaviour was accetable, and there is no such thing as normal my compelling friend.

You all have it wrong. The interview we are referring to was on American television, CBS' Pre-US Open programming yesterday afternoon. It was not a press conference or a transcribed interview. You would have had to watch the program. If you don't get American television, there's no way you would have seen it or know what we are talking about. :rolleyes:

It's so easy to turn things around. All you have to do is leave out 3 words and all of a sudden a statement becomes all negative and insulting. If I were to say, "I think mean white people suck" and someone posted in another thread, "Franny said that she thinks white people suck," the people on this board would believe it. The fact is that words are all too often left out and tone is all too often left out. Maria loves playing in America and she loves the fact that Americans are loud, boisterous, and doesn't follow the proper etiquette that British fans have to follow. And yet, she is slammed for saying that. Go figure.

You have quoted many stuff... many except mine...

anyways... it is the true... so what...

Do you remember last year when there was the Russian tragedy, and Elena Dementieva asked for a minute of silence. The ever smart American crowd just boomed in primitve rage, while Elena just quietly and humbly bowed her head down. The USTA president in embarassment actually had to remind them telling all the crowd what she just asked for. She asked for one minute of solemn silence, she received barely ten second of whispering silence.

That was so disrespectful not only to the players, but also it puts us the Americans in a really bad position in front of all other countries, at demonstrating how arrogant our crowds are.

I actually would have preferred Maria being like a Patty Schnyder and yell on TV this. And really the spectators are som numb in thier heads that they would hate her to death and complot to kill her, or just keep loving her.

What about me. I am a Williams fan. I love Venus and Serena.

why the hate? Yah she beated Serena a couple times and Venus once. And sop Serena beated Maria and Venus MAria to go to win a Slam. And I don't hate them. They are all cool. I don't see the point in hating. You don't have to like her, just don't hate her.
Dz, I'm happy that you are a Williams fan and a Sharapova fan. I have nothing against her fans who have nothing against me. I just don't like her. Yes, I'm a "Sharapova hater". So what??!!! It's no big news. Why do I hate her, because she is arrogant, rude and she beat my faves last year (but not this year :devil: ) Anyway, I'm not sure where your post is going here, but just because you like the Williams' along with being a fan of Sharapova, doesn't mean I have to be a fan of hers or even like her. :shrug:

I'm not sure you could call it real "hate", it's just sports "hate". I don't know her personally, so I couldn't like, hate or love her. Just as my "love" for Vee and Rena is sports "love". I don't know them personally, so how could I love them, really? You know what I mean?

Anyway, I don't want us to be enemies. I don't have anything against you or any of your posts. So, we are cool in my book. :cool:

I am pretty indifferent to Maria--- COULD TAKE HER OR LEAVE HER, -----but some posters here are making some shit up. She said it was noisy and different and that the crowd really got into the matches and THAT WAS WHY SHE REALLY ENJOYED PLAYING IN NEW YORK.....

She said it on the USO preview show yesterday, BUT it is only part of what she said. I don't know if there is a link to it, but the rest of what she said was about her liking the different atmosphere. If you saw it as a whole, it was not so bad.

Okay, we can't produce the quotes because we'd have to get them from the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), an American television network. They were not transcribed. I don't know or care what Maria said in the past or on that show. I don't care what she thinks about America or any continent in the world.

Not to me. It was a criticism and you can't blame it on a language barrier because she's been here in the states long enough to know when something is critical and when it's not. Whether it was followed up with it being the reason why she likes the USO is irrelevant. Maybe she likes loud and improper crowds because her father is that way. :shrug:

Thats a weird way of looking at it :scratch:
If its followed by saying its the reason she likes NY then why is it bad? Would you rather Maria fib and say the crowds are just like any other...nice and quiet and dont get involved at all?
How is YEC relevant if Yuri's behaviour has nothing to do with Maria? :)

Any criticism, unless constructive is bad, in my opinion. She may not have had any mal intent, but it was still a criticism.

How is it relevant? People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. If your parent behaves a certain way and you say nothing, then criticize others for doing the same thing, isn't it relevant and hypocritical? In my opinion it is. But, everyone has a different opinion on this issue.

Well, if someone you knew had gained a lot of weight, would you tell them "hey you've gained a lot of weight"? I wouldn't because it would be stating the obvious, which would also be a criticism that would hurt the person. Sometimes things are better left unsaid. Especially about a country's event. As you can see, some people here in the states on this board took offense to it. Just because you didn't doesn't mean that whether it's obvious or not is not insulting.

Let's get something straight, a lot of people got suspended along with me in the same thread. A lot of people made rude comments to me and still do. I'd like to know what house you're living in that you can come here and be rude enough to throw that in my face like I'm the only poster that's ever been suspended NOT banned for making comments that the administrators subjectively thought were inappropriate. Posters continue to make rude comments to me and other posters all of the time and don't get suspended because it's all subjective and a lot has to do with luck. For example sartrista was lucky not to be suspended for calling me a ****. I think that's much worse than anything I've ever said to anyone.

I've never attacked anyone on this message board without being provoked, but somehow to an immature twit such as yourself, you think it's some kind of badge of dishonor to be suspended. Well, if you keep posting messages such as this, you may be the next to go, so don't act so high and mighty like it can never happen to you or any one of your friends. Get a clue, this is a message board. It's not life. A suspension on this board does not end my life. When you grow up, you will find that there are worse things to face. This is entertainment. I have friends here that I enjoy, but this isn't the only place I can interface with them.

Regarding your comment, on my opinion about Maria and her criticism of the US Open, please don't spin what I said to suit your argument. I never said she was rude. If you had read all of the posts, you would have seen that I said, I don't care what she said, I just thought it was arrogant and hypocritical of her to say anything about a loud, obnoxious crowd of people acting improper, in light of the fact that her very own father behaved less than proper at the YEC last year in LA. A lot of posters here agreed with me. Those same posters have made rude comments to other posters on this board, rightly or wrongly. Some may have even gotten suspended at one time or another unbeknown to you personally, but you chose to question my personal integrity or my ability to have an opinion about what someone said. I think your actions just go to show that if you have to personally attack someone for having an opinion, then it's your maturity, your integrity and your ability to proffer a proper argument to rebutt my opinion that should be questioned here.
