Nadia is right ;)
Russia has only one Tier 1 tournament (Moscow), 25,000$ St. Petersburgh, 25,000$ Balascikha and 3-4 10,000$ tournaments. Let's compare with USA with their 75,000$ and 50,000$ and Tier 1 and GS! Young russian tennisists have to begin their career abroad because there is no place to play in Russia

Yes Nadia is bitchy. Every tournament I have been to she is bitchy, and she is always bitchy to the umpires.

No. This is not bitchy. It's just the truth.

DOHA (AFP) - World No.8 Nadia Petrova launched a scathing attack on her home tennis federation, saying their contribution to the success enjoyed by the Russians mounted to "mere words."
"The Russian tennis authorities can't claim any credit for the success many of the players are having on the professional circuit these days," Petrova claimed.

"All they do is talk and their contribution doesn't go beyond mere words," she added. Petrova said if at all anyone can claim credit for the rise of players like Maria Sharapova, Anastasia Myskina, Svetlana Kuznetsova and herself, it was their parents.

"Our parents made great sacrifices and that is the main reason why many of the Russians are at the top today," said Petrova, the second seeded player behind Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo at the 600,000 dollar Qatar Open.

Petrova herself spent some of her younger years in Egypt where her father worked as an athletics coach while Sharapova was sent to the Nick Bolleteiri academy in the US as a nine-year-old where she developed her game, staying away from her parents for a considerable time.

Petrova even went to the extent of hinting that things were better during the Soviet era when the state took care of the athletes' expenses.

"Now I keep hearing from younger Russians all the time that they are facing severe financial problems. Before the perestroika, athletes didn't have to worry about training expenses, but now the federation has no money and they can do very little to help."

Petrova also said the success of Russian women has brought along its own share of problems as a result of bitter competition.

"We often stay in the same hotels during tournaments but sometimes I get the feeling that there's no connection (between the players) at all. I guess you can blame it on the generation.

"We just talk to each other casually but we never have dinners or go shopping together. I guess because we are competing against each other so fiercely it's difficult to get close to each other."

But she made it clear that it was a situation she didn't like very much. "I would like all of us to be friends, it would be very exciting but I don't know how that's going to happen."

Petrova pointed out her friendship with her former doubles partner Meghan Shaughnessy also came under heavy strain when they began meeting each other in singles competitions.

"Our friendship came under a lot of stress when we started playing each other in the singles," said Petrova who won eight of her 11 doubles titles partnering the American.

The 23-year-old, who has won just one singles title - at Linz last year - is hopeful of making it big sometime in the near future.

Absolutely true¡

Nadia is a sweetheart.

Mar 4th, 2006, 04:55 PM
I think she's just uptight. she probably smiles like once a week. And she looks like she's being tortured on the court.
But I still like her tho.

Mar 4th, 2006, 04:58 PM
Nadia's alleged bitchiness is some other players spunk and great attitude/ability to tell it like it is (the you just gotta love so and so syndrome) :rolleyes: Change the name and the description also changes.

Mar 4th, 2006, 05:08 PM
lol ! judging from the way she treated the ballsboys in Doha ,shes bitchy to the core ...

Mar 4th, 2006, 05:24 PM
Speaking your mind and telling the truth is often seen as being bitchy down here and I think it's crap :rolleyes: I like Nadia, and one of the main reason is because she isn't afriad to speak her mind and doesn't go for the 'smile and be pretty'-personality. i say good on her and may she stay that way.

On Court Nadia is bitchy but off court she was really nice to her fans in Antwerp

Who cares if she's bitchy or not! To some she is and to some is not, there is no consensus obviously. Now can we have a look at what she's trying to say here? lol IMO the content of this article is a lot more important to her than what people think of her, otherwise she'd keep her mouth shut like the other russians who pretend all is fine
