In an interview today that she made in Israeli television Shahar said that Sharapova is only nice and friendly when there are cameras but not in personal. she reveald that after the match in Zurich, Shahar's mom entered to the gym and said hello to Maria and Yuri but they did not comment. in the morning, Shahar met Yuri and said to him "well done" and again he did not response. according to Shahar this is not the first time so she have no symphathy to mrs. Sharapova. In contrast she said that Roger is very nice person in-court and off-court.

another details from her interview:

1. she doesn't think that she will make the top 10 by the end of next year.
2. she said that Dementieva is stunning and very nice person although it is little annoying her custom of changing clothes between the sets...
3. she had secret boyfriend in the middle of the year but it is over.

Oh how nice of her to try to approach Maria. Maybe Maria was having her period or something? Like maybe she just didn't want to talk, I don't know. There have been people who say she's a nice girl, and people who say she is an unfriendly girl. Who even knows. All I care about is her tennis.

To be honest, Big Masha doesn't look too friendly towards other players even when the camera is on. She's a girl who's out to win in an ultracompetitive industry, few other top players are friendly to each other even with the camera either. I mean, you get tears and thanks and all that bullsit after a slam final, but how often do these girls really look like they're buds when a match is over? Yeah, I thought so. Or maybe Big Masha is a complete bitch, worse than the others. Helen doesn't care either way.

There have been people who say she's a nice girl.

Who. Everytime I've seen Maria in person she's totally ignored everyone. There was this one instance at Wimbledon where she was walking to practice, the TV camera's were there so she starts signing and smiling... then runs off when they stop filming.

Federer is one of the most modest and classy players on either tour...whereas Sharapova "tries" to appear modest and classy but you can see right through it.

Then again, that was before the fame. Since then, she's been cold and aloof to everybody at Wimbledon.
Can't say it's changed my opinion of her though :shrug: Most pretty girls let the attention go to their head. She'll learn.

I want to put it in context: it was 1/2 hour of interview and only 2-3 minutes were about Sharapova. It all started with the famous incident on Shahar second serve (huge thread, remember). Shahar said that she asked the referee to ask Sharapova if she was ready and she was stunned when Maria said that she was ready to play. in this point she described what happend after the match etc....

But she wants to give the impression of her as a very nice, positive and friendly person, therefore a hipocrite.

1. She does not try to give the impression of her as nice. She gives the impression that she can be civil.

2. To the poster who said that this gives us an indication to who we idolize, we do not idolize her for her kindness. We have Oprah and Jesus to idolize for that, okay? We idolize her for her competitiveness, spirit, and tennis skills.

3. Maria is nice....to people she likes or cares about. So if she doesn't like you, boohoo. She is not obligated to being nice.

Omg, have you guys heard the song, "I hate everyone" by Get Set Go? I love that song!

Oct 30th, 2006, 06:43 PM
personaly it is up to Maria what she wants to do.If she wants to be a bitch to other players then so be it because she only cares about herself and the group around here, I doubt she cares if she has basicly no friends on the tour because tht is her personality.

So,great,there are no more responsabilities.People are as they are and don't have to change?Well.........That's supicious as mind.

May I remind you that you are juding one person solely on what you have heard about her. What you know about her is minimal. You go on the streets, and how many people are rude to you? A guy flicks you off while driving. A waitress gives you attitude. You think to yourself, man that person is a jerk. But yet you do not know that person. That person may be nice elsewhere. That person may be nice to just certain people. No human being is perfect. Not every single human being can be nice at all times. We have heard but a maximum of 5-6 testimony about a woman who has hundreds of dealings a week. We hear the bad because that is what people want to hear. On the news, how many tragedies do we hear about? How many deaths? How many accidents? How many bad people? And yet do you lose faith in mankind in our constant exposure of the bad by the media? No, because we understand that there is good out there. It may not be broadcasted, and it may not be reported on the news, but good is out there. The same can be said of Maria. People report the bad on her, but how many people really find it juicy enough to come in here and post something nice that she did? How many reporters go and write nice things about her? They don't want that, they are not going to report it because no one cares when a celebrity is nice. I just do not think that people should judge a soul before knowing them personally, or at least have been acquainted with her. She can be the sweetest person in the world to those she loves. Isn't that what being a human is about? To cherish and give love to those who you care about? Do we all constantly make an effort to be nice to everyone, even the people we don't like? No, but we are not bad people for it. We are only human.

Maria's a bitch, we all no that...what u don't understand? Well let me pan it out for u...

1) that shreaking is clearly to distract the other player
2) she is coached by her father from the stands during a match
3) her preencing and prancing around the tennis court is sickly
4) her constant fist pumping and come ons is offensive when her opponent (ie Golovin at Miami) is injured
5) she is so fake in public that its obvious, good on shahar for speaking the truth!

I'm a little older than some of the people here, and my favorite player used to be John McEnroe. Now, you want to talk about someone who was (he's changed) a wolrd-class asshole? That's Johnny Mac. Spoiled rotten, he had a sense of entitlement that was unmatched. He was boorish, aloof, a complete jerk both on and off the court.

Now, he's mellowed a lot. And pretty much everyone likes him. But the time was he was a lightning rod. But I loved watching him play tennis. There was no one like him. He was amazing. But I never wanted to *be* like him (except as a tennis player, of course).

People have weird expectations of athletes. Most athletes are just like most non-athletes. They have friends and loved ones, and they goof around, and go to work, and take vacations. Maria is no different. She strikes me as regular teenage girl when she gives interviews, or what not. I don't think she is mean or anything else. Is she driven? Yeah, absolutely. But that's why most of her fans like her: her fierce competitiveness. She has a singular dedication to succeed.

And that's refreshing to those of us who love the sport. In an age of "Oh, I'm gonna retire soon," and "Maybe I'll play next year," and players showing up to major tournaments thirty pounds overweight and blah blah blah ... it's nice to see someone who wants to get to the top, stay there, and is willing to do everything required to see that happen.

One thing that Maria needs to be careful of which most of the WTA players don't is the fact that she is incredibly wealthy. And when you suddenly become very wealthy, lots of people all of a sudden want to be your best bud 4eva'! She is more than likely wary of this sort of phenomenon. And I don't blame her.

Now, I don't know Maria Sharapova personally. But I will say something here which is just my impression, from watching her in all sorts of circumstances, and having been a student of people for almost four decades: I actually think Maria is a bit shy. Laugh all you want. But I think being on the tennis court is probably a relief for her, to some extent. It's home. It's a place where nothing more is expected of her than hitting a ball past her opponent.

I'm sure Maria is a nice friend. There's never been anything to indicate she is anything beyond what a person in her place would likely be. Actually, I wish she were a bit more bitchy (a la Hingis, my other fave, and Queen of the Bitches) in some ways. But there's no doubting her intensity, her prowess, and her dedication. If the entire Top-10 of the WTA were as dedicated as Masha, we would see some great tennis on a regular basis.

Excellent post as usual. Fact is, Maria is just getting the same riot act that the Williams sisters, Jennifer Capriati, Justine Henin Hardenne and Martina Hingis got and often still get all the time.

Hell, have heard very few nice things about Anastasia Rodianova.

People want to judge so let them judge. If Shahar feels that way about Maria than so be it. I am sure there are those that can't stand Peer either.

In about seven years, Maria is probably still going to get these types of threads, but believe me, some new hot shot will be getting it worse.

1. Seles is a bitch then too.
2. Justine, Nadal, and basically 60% of the players: bigger bitches
3. Running and skipping is apparently bitchy now.
4. If you've been pumping your fist before your opponent gets injured, you'd better pray they stay healthy, cuz if not, you're a bitch. Omg, Vera was pumping her fist before Mary's injury, she's a bitch!
5. Being fake to people who are fake to you is definitely bitch-worthy. No matter that people only appreciate you for what you can do for them. The press only wants you to sell articles. The paparrazi only wants you to sell pictures. The sponsors only want you to sell products. The fans only like you for your looks and your tennis. The other players are only civil to you because apparently it's a "rule of politeness" and not out of the kindness of their heart. You are only real to those who know the real you. You're a bitch.

Now that I think about it, 99% of us are fake. I mean, who are we to be fans of people that we don't even know. We only see what is on TV and then we conclude that we like them. That is so fake! We're all bitches!!! You're a bitch. I'm a bitch. Everybody is a bitch. Bitch bitch bitch, la la la la la.

Are you kidding me? From some of the articles I've seen written about her, you'd think she was the greatest gift to humankind since fermentation.

I think the issue is more that fans/writers tend to see only extremes - a player is a saint, or a player is satan. She can do no wrong, or can do no right. Forget that most of us fall somewhere in between.

I don't know what's all the fuss is about:

I mean -

* Don't be fooled. Shahar said some opinions that a lot of people and players acknowledge.

* I bet Shahar's fury towards Pova has risen since the Hand Incident, which was totally bitchy from Maria's side.

* The context of these quotes was simply the interviewer's questions. I don't think that if the talk wouldn't slide towards the Hand Incident, Shahar would of brought it up.

* The conversation about Sharapova only lasted for a rough 1 lousy minute.

She's not there to make friendships. I've always believed Maria was programmed to win and nothing more.

I like Shahar but she must have low self esteem if she is expecting Maria and Yuri to embrace her. How about improving your game Shahar instead of talking about someone not speaking to you?

I'm so sick of the tour at this point. None of todays younger players have the drive and determination to stand up to Maria. If you can challenge her on court then you don't need her respect because you've earned it the hard way.:o

I agree with everyone else here - different players give different opinions about Masha, so it's not possible to know whether her personality suits up to yours unless you meet her personally. Besides I'm sure she couldn't care less about what others say. She's gotten these kind of comments before, yet it hasn't stopped her from winning matches. That's what true champions are about: putting the tennis above all else :)

yeah, she's mature enough 2 no that those petulant comments r nothin but peanuts 2 her. that's what i admire bout maria that she always focuses on the job (her tennis) no matter what & that's what makes her a great champion.

these same things were said of kournikova back in the day too...and look at Anna now...she seems like a friendly, down-to-earth woman

when you face the constant pressure and you are surrounded by people who tell you how wonderful and pretty and smart you are then it's easy to let it get to your head...

I want to put it in context: it was 1/2 hour of interview and only 2-3 minutes were about Sharapova. It all started with the famous incident on Shahar second serve (huge thread, remember). Shahar said that she asked the referee to ask Sharapova if she was ready and she was stunned when Maria said that she was ready to play. in this point she described what happend after the match etc....

Please, please, please !!! can you translate that part of the interview? :aparty:

i always thought sharapova is a bitch, and I haven't been shy in expressing this opinion over the years. therefore what peer says does not surprise me at all

however, even as a sharapova hater, i actually want her to stick around for many more years cuz she is good for women's tennis and her desire and motivation is admirable. i wish players like clijsters, serena and davenport (one of my favs) had the fire in their belly as much as she does. if they did we would get to witness some amazing rivalries, similar to the ones we witnessed in the nineties

sharapova is like marmite on this board - you either love her, or you hate her

Are you kidding me? From some of the articles I've seen written about her, you'd think she was the greatest gift to humankind since fermentation.

I think the issue is more that fans/writers tend to see only extremes - a player is a saint, or a player is satan. She can do no wrong, or can do no right. Forget that most of us fall somewhere in between.

Griffin, you are absolutely right in this statement. Too many people can only see extremes.

Oh, and word of this is going to hit Maria I think. The press loves to bring these things up, just wait till the Aus Open. Peer better pray that she doesn't draw Maria there, or there will be some serious beat-down inflicted on her by Maria.

In an interview today that she made in Israeli television Shahar said that Sharapova is only nice and friendly when there are cameras but not in personal. she reveald that after the match in Zurich, Shahar's mom entered to the gym and said hello to Maria and Yuri but they did not comment. in the morning, Shahar met Yuri and said to him "well done" and again he did not response. according to Shahar this is not the first time so she have no symphathy to mrs. Sharapova. In contrast she said that Roger is very nice person in-court and off-court.

:worship: very revealing and potentially DAMAGING:worship:


another details from her interview:

1. she doesn't think that she will make the top 10 by the end of next year.
2. she said that Dementieva is stunning and very nice person although it is little annoying her custom of changing clothes between the sets...
3. she had secret boyfriend in the middle of the year but it is over.

thats cute :p

I guess what I don't understand is people (Maria's fans) thinking that Maria and Yuri completely ignoring someone who speaks to them is acceptable. We're not talking about having a conversation if you are busy or doing some type of favor for the person, only acknowledging a comment in passing. I do find that more than odd and bitchy to competely ignore someone, and strange for people to find that acceptable.

Do you know other people who ignore people who speak to them? Maybe in some cultures that is acceptable? :confused: The only cultures I can think of are employer-employee, master-servant, or elder-junior, where the subserviant one is "not to speak unless spoken to". (Or as my parents would sometimes say, "children are to be seen but not heard" :lol: ). But even in relationships between a people of superior and inferior status, that practice of the inferior one not speaking rarely happens even these days.

I think Maria's not speaking to people gives off the impression that she feels herself so superior to them, which is of course offensive. And if she doesn't mean that, why doesn't she give at least a polite acknoweldgement?

Do you know what the conditions were? I don't. Peer didn't say; at least in the section of the interview which was translated here.

We also don't know what the history, if any, is.

I'm not going to hear one person's (partial) side of a (partial) story, and then draw broad conclusion from it. It has nothing to do AT ALL with being a fan of Sharapova. It has to do with the way I address anything in life: if I don't know what happened, how can I possibly judge? Give me the information, the details, and a reliable source, and then I can *begin* to form an impression.

Again, these young girls whose rankings are fairly low just don't seem to get it. Its not a popularity test out there.

Maria is playing and winning GS events and other tournaments and your favs are not. Maria beat Serena in a Wimbledon final and you STILL haven't gotten over it. :silly:

Peer has a right to her opinion, however, I wonder why she waited so long to state her grievance???? Perhaps she wanted to make sure she was out of Russia and in Israel before saying it????

Again, its PROFESSIONAL tennis and NOT a PERSONALITY CONTEST. Grow up. Even the mention of a Professional Tennis Player not being friendly is very immature. To stay competitive at the top, you must distance yourself from the lower-ranked help.

I enjoyed your posts. Especially the point you made about Pova being shy. I think she is very shy and basically tries to stay out of the way and be invisible - lessons learned from being years younger than all the others in a dorm.

Her reaction to the US Open Trophy top falling on her head kerfuffle was a spectacular demonstration of a shy girl thinking: "OMG, my friends are going to torment me for months about this one!"

Often shy people are mistaken for being aloof and arrogant when they are just trying to stay out of the way and be inconspicuous. Those are two goals she no longer has the opportunity to attain!

Nicole is a blatant bitch. Its been widely-discussed in this forum. Maria is not. The difference being, even if you think Maria is a bitch, at least she wins. Something Nicole hasn't learned to do yet.
if you meant That Ernie Kid issue, the case was already closed. she's got interrupted during the practice which is not an appropriate manner from the fans. i wouldn't refuse her reaction was quite unexceptable but it was reasonable but ignoring the one who approached to you to give a compliment or even say hi is totally unexceptable and ill-mannered :)

How come this does not surprise me even one little bit. Pova wants to be like Fed, but personality wise she will have to change everything even to get close...

Roger can afford to be nice. He is unquestionably untouchable. If he plays anywhere near his best tennis, he wins 100% of the time. Even Serena in 02/03 was nowhere near as dominant as Fed is. When you are THAT good, you can be nice to people because you don't have to prove anything.

I love Maria, and she is a very good player, but she isn't even no. 1 in the world, let alone far and away the best player on tour. She has to stay focused, and has to maintain that meanness in order to win. She still has a lot to prove.

Thanks, Perseus.

I think that Maria's life has been a very different one from most people's, even before she won Wimbledon.


Her reaction to the US Open Trophy top falling on her head kerfuffle was a spectacular demonstration of a shy girl thinking: "OMG, my friends are going to torment me for months about this one!"

Exactly. "Only me!" She really does come off as sort of a goofball who is very well aware of how silly she can be sometimes. Whenever I have seen her interviewed or on a show, when it had nothing to do with tennis, she seems like your typical 19 year old girl who is a little shy and self-concious.


Often shy people are mistaken for being aloof and arrogant when they are just trying to stay out of the way and be inconspicuous. Those are two goals she no longer has the opportunity to attain!


Yep. And like said, there's also the fact that, as tennis players are concerned, she is incredibly wealthy. That also makes her somewhat wary of others, fair or not.

Not that long ago, she and her father came to the US with nearly nothing. Now, she makes more than $30 Million a year, and is the most recognizable face in her sport. The fact that she seems even remotely down-to-Earth is a miracle, actually.


Five more to go for a 21 match streak at the end of the year! Shriek On, Pova!

OH, yeah. She has really turned it on at the end here. I think that US Open title just shot her confidence through the roof. During this 16 match win streak, she has a 32-2 record in sets. And one of those sets she lost was sandwiched between two bagels.

Seriously, she's on fire.

well its not a surprise is it??

But she wants to give the impression of her as a very nice, positive and friendly person, therefore a hipocrite.

How can you compare Sharapova and Fed?

Federer is one of the most modest and classy players on either tour...whereas Sharapova "tries" to appear modest and classy but you can see right through it.

You can't blame Maria for being the way she is, look who she was raised by

Well done Shahar

Maria to be polite? How? A version of photoshop that changes the people from the inside and make their character look better has not been made yet. Untill that, Maria will be Maria, and humans will be humans.....

love you Shahar

I always knew that cheaterova is a bitch :)

Great from Shahar

go to h*** Maria

Maria's a bitch, we all no that...what u don't understand? Well let me pan it out for u...

1) that shreaking is clearly to distract the other player
2) she is coached by her father from the stands during a match
3) her preencing and prancing around the tennis court is sickly
4) her constant fist pumping and come ons is offensive when her opponent (ie Golovin at Miami) is injured
5) she is so fake in public that its obvious, good on shahar for speaking the truth!

I am a new fan of Shahar Peer!!!

i always thought sharapova is a bitch, and I haven't been shy in expressing this opinion over the years. therefore what peer says does not surprise me at all

however, even as a sharapova hater, i actually want her to stick around for many more years cuz she is good for women's tennis and her desire and motivation is admirable. i wish players like clijsters, serena and davenport (one of my favs) had the fire in their belly as much as she does. if they did we would get to witness some amazing rivalries, similar to the ones we witnessed in the nineties

sharapova is like marmite on this board - you either love her, or you hate her

Shahar Peer I Love You. :bowdown:

I read good 10 pages and it was just Pova fans spamming the board with personal attacks and counting messages :rolleyes:

Anyway , this is no surprise. Pova does seem to lack social skills and seems only motivated by superficial things , blame her daddy

i said this many times. Nicole is not arrogant hypocrite bitch, she might behave badly on court b/c the intensity in the games but noone ever criticized her on having a diva attitude

i prefer to be a devil than a bitch :angel:

Jeez, please be rational. Girls who have periods does not mean they cannot be polite to fellow players :rolleyes: Thank god another player attests to her arrogance.

Go Shahar!!!

Er, first of all, I don't think Shahar's intentions were to be friends with Maria. She was just trying to compliment her, while Maria ignored her, which is very rude. So don't speak for Shahar in that manner :rolleyes:

if you meant That Ernie Kid issue, the case was already closed. she's got interrupted during the practice which is not an appropriate manner from the fans. i wouldn't refuse her reaction was quite unexceptable but it was reasonable but ignoring the one who approached to you to give a compliment or even say hi is totally unexceptable and ill-mannered :)

Maria has never seemed very friendly so Shahar is probably telling the truth

You tell 'em Shahar. :kiss:

This seems like she has no respect for her fellow professionals off court. This has a way of going around. Treat others as you'd like to be treated

It's not like we didn't know these things already. Way to state the obvious, Shahar!

Well said Sharar

Good point and I don't buy Peer's story. Maria might not be super friendly with everyone, but she can be and is civil. And she's got enough class and respect for opponents to NOT talk shit behind their back. :bounce:

Poor Shahar, she made a short comment, in Hebrew, on Cabel TV in Israel, after being asked directly. She probably assumed she was safe from being quoted in English 3 secs afterwards.

She forgot it's the age of information, LOL. And that she has loads of Israeli fans just ready to quote her on international forums.

Plus, you don't need to 'buy' Shahar's story, wasn't 'the not ready' moment enough for some Maria insight? That was live TV.

Anyone who's been told more age 2 that they are the best in the world is gonna be arrogant (see: Serena, Venus, Hingis, and now Maria).

Federer is one of the most modest and classy players on either tour...whereas Sharapova "tries" to appear modest and classy but you can see right through it.

1) that shreaking is clearly to distract the other player
2) she is coached by her father from the stands during a match
3) her preencing and prancing around the tennis court is sickly
4) her constant fist pumping and come ons is offensive when her opponent (ie Golovin at Miami) is injured
5) she is so fake in public that its obvious, good on shahar for speaking the truth!

i'll be the first to admit that Sharapova is not a brilliant personality, or even particularly interesting off the court. But, like Serena Williams before her, she looks good and she wins tennis tournaments. You can't have it all.

What's this? I wouldn't even bother to read through all this. :haha:

So Maria is an arrogant bitch?! It's impossible for her not to be one in one way or the other. So what? Will any of us experience firsthand the extent of her supposed arrogance or bitchiness? No. Saints or sinners, we don't even know these people my god. People really need to get a life. :lol:

Meanwhile, I'll just enjoy watching Maria become more of the tennis champion she already is and beat the crap out of other players. :D

Maria's personality seems plastic. She seems to try to be funny and adorable but it doesn't quite pull itself off. She is mentally tough and a competitive player though. Which I like that part of her. Yet she seems like she's playing a part. She also seems like she is under her fathers total control. Everything is so methodical. Methodical is no fun and can cause some problems for her future. Yuri's manners imho make Maria look kinda bad.

I am not impressed with her antics lately but she hasn't trashed a player which I have to give her kudos for. Anyway imho Maria doesn't smile much anymore and she is so much under her dad's control that it's gettin' weird. That bananna incident was way to much imho.


Shahar expressed her opinions and imho Yuri and Masha could have said hello back. This is just common respect. Shahar also has to know that your opponents don't have to give a crap about you or your feelings. Some people are just rude. Maria and Dad are trying to make her a long time slam champ. They are focused imho on winning,winning and more winning they don't have time for the "hi's and hello's". Yet in all honesty, I think part of being a great champion of the game is respecting the game and the people around it.

This is why I couldn't stand Hingis. She was a totally rude women. She has humbled and matured, thank god. Hingis never cheated though. Anyway, I'm sure Maria will soon realize that it's beneficial to respect those in the industry who play along side her then it is to focus only on the winning. The Tour's lonely enough.

Roger can afford to be nice. He is unquestionably untouchable. If he plays anywhere near his best tennis, he wins 100% of the time. Even Serena in 02/03 was nowhere near as dominant as Fed is. When you are THAT good, you can be nice to people because you don't have to prove anything.

I love Maria, and she is a very good player, but she isn't even no. 1 in the world, let alone far and away the best player on tour. She has to stay focused, and has to maintain that meanness in order to win. She still has a lot to prove.

Ummmmmm, if I recall correctly Federer was a nice guy even before he was dominant. Sharapova probably has never been a nice person, and why would she start now? On the flipside, the WTA isn't about making friends...it's about winning. Tennis is an individual sport unless you're primarily a doubles player.

I gave up reading somewhere around page 12. :yawn:
I always thought that one of the principles of law is to listen to both rowing sides. Therefore it is not right to make any conclusion from Shahar's statement, because we have no Maria's.


sharapova is like marmite on this board - you either love her, or you hate her
I really don't care about her. She doesn't impress me that much to love her or to hate her either. ;)

Very true! For Pova that's been the US Open Championship, so far 5 titles in 2006, a 16 game winning streak and something like 32-3 since RG! Pova has come up prancing and dancing!!!

What terrible times for PovaLoathers. You have to look for bigger bugs.

I doubt that any comment Shahar makes will have any perceptible impact on the WTA. She committed a breach in ettiquette, exercised poor judgment. What can you expect from a kid?
