MOSCOW (http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/09/12/sports/EU-SPT-TEN-Russia-Sharapova.php#): Maria Sharapova practiced Wednesday despite not being expected to play this weekend when Russia faces defending champion Italy in the Fed Cup final.
Sharapova, who has never played for Russia in the Fed Cup, is still bothered by a right shoulder injury and apparent opposition within the Russian team. But her appearance Wednesday was seen as an attempt to improve relations.
"It's great," Sharapova said after practicing with Elena Vesnina. "It's the first time that I am playing tennis as part of a team."
Sharapova usually skips Fed Cup weekends citing injuries, but there have been suggestions that she has been kept off the team due to personal friction with other Russian players.
"I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from our captain, asking me if I would like to play in the finals," Sharapova wrote on her Web site last week.
She also said she couldn't play because of her shoulder, "but the least I could do is fly over there and be their practice partner for the week and cheer them on from the stands."
Russia captain Shamil Tarpishchev said Wednesday he had invited Sharapova even though she could not play, so that she could "take part in the life of the team."
He insisted that "there is not a single personal conflict inside the team," and said Sharapova is likely to play for Russia next year.
Svetlana Kuznetsova and Anna Chakvetadze have both come to Moscow from the U.S. Open, where Kuznetsova reached the final and Chakvetadze the semifinals.
On Monday, Kuznetsova moved up to No. 2 in the WTA rankings while Chakvetadze is No. 5, just behind Sharapova.
Kuznetsova and No. 8 Nadia Petrova did not show up for practice Wednesday. Chakvetadze practiced two hours before Sharapova.
After her practice session, Chakvetadze said it would be wrong for Sharapova to play against Italy because she did not help Russia reach the final.
Russia, trying to win the Fed Cup title for the third time, will face Italy's Francesca Schiavone, Flavia Pennetta, Mara Santangelo and Roberta Vinci.

I think she's exposing something that's marginalised in the sport by the biggest names often skipping it or only playing it when it suits them. If her presence gives the final more attention then that's great. If, however, she used as a way for shit stirring among the russian players then that's a shame and perhaps what you're suggesting. If the russian players aren't accepting her, especially when she's refused to play because of the reason Chakvetadze cited, IMO, then they should grow up and make the effort. I would think that it's something the media is either cooking up entirely or exaggerating.

Her presence doesn't bring more attention to the final, it brings more attention to her self. That's the problem. I don't think she intends to "steal the spotlight" from other girls but it's exactly what will happen.

Though, to be honest, Fed Cup final won't be that interesting for Moscow public anyway since the only "marquee" names (Sharapova, Dementieva and Myskina) don't play it.

And because of this, Maria should never support them, and by that same logic, should never play fed cup. No matter what, she'll be the center of attention.

I think you aren't giving the other Russian women enough credit. You think they're as immature as you are.

Logically speaking, if Maria were to play Fed Cup, she'd rightfully deserve the attention.Moreso than if she were just a spectator.

She didn't come to PLAY Fed Cup. That's the point.
And (unlike you) I read Russian press and internet. And it's all about Sharapova. ALL. No one gives a shit about other girls or the final's outcome.
Of course it's not Sharapova's fault that she's more successful and Kuznetsova & Petrova are not popular among general public. Like I said I don't think Masha wants to steal all the attention. Nevertheless it's what is happening.

Great to see Masha in Moscow with the girls. :cool: If Anna doesn't like Masha then she doesn't like Masha. As long as there are valid reasons for her not liking someone then why would it matter? By the way, "She has beaten me heaps of times this year and I don't like how much attention she gets from the media" is not a valid reason to dislike someone.

I'm sure most of the Russian girls get along just fine.

Masha & Tarpi!!!! :bounce: :hearts: Finally! :banana:

I'm so glad that she's making an effort to be part of the team and be there for the final even if its just for support. Olympics or not, this is a good step for her as someone has mentioned. Just hope the other girls are nice to her - Chaky :armed:...lol

Can't wait to see Masha in the stands this weekend...hopefully with the official Russian Fed Cup jacket on! They better give her one. :D

I thought Big Masha only discovered her roots at the hair salon!

:haha: Oh Helen!

No, they won't.
It will be all about Sharapova this weekend. Her appearance is overshadowing the Fed Cup final itself and it's not fair towards the girls who have actually played Fed Cup this year.

I see this happening, yes. It may not be fair but it's hardly Maria's fault. I'm sure she has never intended to hog the spotlight and take it away from the girls on the court. I think it should say something that Maria went all the way just to be a practice partner, sit on the stands and support the girls especially when as she has said in her blog that Tarpi asked her if she wanted to play. If the other girls don't accept her as they should, that will say more about them than about Maria. Of course we don't know what goes on behind the scenes and how they really are to each other, but if the other girls' only reason for not accepting Maria is as you say - her being the center of attention and overshadowing the final - then as faboo says, that's incredibly immature but among girls, quite understandable. Anyway, the final has yet to be played. We'll see what happens. I'm just looking forward to seeing Maria cheering and hopefully watching Russia take the Fed Cup.

Wait, so is Masha playing the Kremlin Cup now? Did she say anything about it? Coz the KC was visibly missing from the schedule that was posted on her website.

There is no need for Maria to be in Moscow now (with regard to the Olympics or anything else). Tarpishev has supported her all along and its good that hes invited her there this week. He seems like a reasonable bloke who doesnt get caught up in the petty Russian/non-Russian crap that a lot of others do. His intention is to do whats best for the Russian team.

Yes if I read this correctly....Maria said in an interview in Moscow that she should be able to play properly in 10 days and hopes to play the Kremlin Cup:

Thing is, KC is scheduled for Oct 8 meaning if she also plays Stuttgart, Zurich, and Linz...she'll be playing for four weeks straight. :scratch:

Was KC always a joint ATP-WTA event? I forget now. Anyway, yeah...it's hard enough for Maria to play two consecutive tournaments. She usually is hanging on by a thread by the end of the second tournament that 3 in a row is suspect and 4 is impossible. :lol: So I dunno, I am still not convinced she's playing KC although I hope she would...just so she can turn around her results there and play through the event healthy for the first time. She should just drop Stuttgart and Linz or either one if she needs to get points and match play in.

I love Anna but I wish she would drop the jealousy. It doesn't do her, the team, or Masha any good and besides which, her results this year stand on there own and I EXPECT she will win both of her matches. Come on Anna!''

...something tells me we won't be seeing her in many Fed Cup matches in the near future. (just enough to get her to the Olympics ;) ) Either way I think it's wonderful to see her representing Russia.

Anyone with a bit of sense knows this is less about Maria representing her country and more about qualifying for the Olympics. It would be in the best interest of the coach to use her for publicity but when it's time to select players for the Olympics pick the Russians who've played Fed Cup all year. A message needs to be sent to Maria that she can't just waltz in and take a spot away from another girl who has remained dedicated all year.

bellascarlett
Sep 14th, 2007, 02:00 PM
Super thanks to TALIA for translating a video (of the Fed Cup teams practicing and getting interviewed) for us:

The first part is about Italians.
Then about Anna C: "She has not adjusted yet after the flight from US so today is her first training. But she'll be ready for Saturday the more so as Maria Sharapova (!!!) came to help the team :) Then Chaky says:

- I guess everyone has his own goals, so we are getting ready for the game. Maria came so I can't see the reasons why she can't go to the match to support us. It will be exciting in some way.

In fact Maria not only came to root for the team but to make the player work hard during practice sessions. Elena Vesnina had a chance to find it out this evening. She said sometimes it was hard for her as her hitting partner is ranked 55 positions higher than her. Maria was hitting the ball so hard as it was she who is going to take part in the weekend match. Then an interview with Tarpischev:

- Probably you should take a chance and let Maria play at least one match?
- The thing is that Maria's problems with shoulder are real so I think it's best that she recovers fully. We'll have a chance to see her playing for the team in future.

Then Maria saying:
- It's just that I have an injury and nothing works out for me. Fed Cup is just after the big tournament so... I hope the next year it will be different.
- How do you feel as a hitting partner?
- (laughing) It's a different feeling. I feel as I'm an invalid (laughing). No. no, it'k OK, I'm going to train here for a week then after 10 days I'll be able to serve and I hope I can come to play Kremlin Cup.

And now her practice sessions go on and she doesn't say no even for the small rising tennis stars".



Funny part about Vesnina. :lol: And surprisingly nice words from Chaky. At least, this is much better.

A message needs to be sent to Maria that she can't just waltz in and take a spot away from another girl who has remained dedicated all year.

1. How in the world does sitting in the stands help Maria's case for Fed Cup?
2. Olympic selection is based on rankings. Maria will likely be qualified even if she doesn't play a Fed Cup tie. Fed Cup isn't some kind of prerequisite.
3. Picking Sharapova for a team (be it Olympic or Fed Cup) would have little to do with generating publicity. She also happens to be the best Russian player.
4. I find it funny that these other girls who have remained so ardently dedicated (whatever that means) have achieved little combined compared to what Sharapova has done.


Also, if you people think Maria has no interest in helping Russia or representing her country, why do you think she would even want to play the olympics?

It';s truly a weird sight.. 6 girls in Russian team jackets.. Maria Sharapova is among them, while Myskina and Dementieva are not..

It does pretty much finalizes the Russian Olympic team though. No one is beating Kuznetsova, Chakvetadze on points basis in terms of eligibility. Presence of Sharapova pretty much takes another spot out. And I doubt anyone can beat Petrova for the remaining spot. What we see on this picture now is Russian Olympic team.

Neither have achieved what Sharapova has. The fact that Sharapova is having her worst year and is so close to them in the rankings (even though both Anna and Sveta play a lot more) just goes to show that Maria is much much better.

The sight of Maria cheering for her Russian team mates almost makes me want to cry. I'm so happy that she decided to be a part of the Russian Fed Cup team, if only as a cheerleader. Maria may live in America, but she is Russian, and it's awesome that she's finally doing the right thing by her country. I watched the Anna/Schiavone match earlier today and Maria was REALLY into it. So cool to see her cheer for others!

These pics are the best I've ever seen of her. Sitting in the stands with "Russia" across her chest, I can honestly say Maria is truly beautiful. :worship:

Well this event doesn't suddenly make Maria one of my favorite players but it has made a huge difference in her I regard Maria. She has, so far, come out of this week with flying colors. It is very definately right that she did not play this weekend but that she has come to Moscow to support the rest of the team will do more to change peoples attitudes towards her than any other single thing she could have done.

I have always respected Goldenlox's attitude towards Maria. She has always been right to criticise Masha in the past and she is right now in showing Masha support.

Maria has deserved all the flac and critism she has got in the past for not supporting the team. But likewise, now that she is with the team she deserves all the credit she is getting too. I hope she will commit herself to the team for the next year and hopefully even beyond. If she could do that she really would have my total respect.

first off-i am not turning this masha love fest into a hating thread
but sharapova being there is clearly for the media-going by the comments made by the russian media after masha pulled out of the semis, she wasnt so popular. then she has a disapointing USO and pulls out of moscow cos she doesnt play well there.
shes trying to get the press on her side by being there thats all-oh and she wants to be in the olympic team

once again, im not hating just stating-it is nice to see her there and alla k (still cant spell her bloody surname :fiery:) supporting the team

I agree 100%. That's why I can't understand this "Maria supports her team" "She is so nice to come over here and support them"
:bs: She didn't care or come any other time. She just wants a spot in the Olympics.

well, if so she's a better actress than ree "if i werent a tennis player i'd probably be an actress" will ever be... and that olympic spot has been booked for such a long time now i guess. i dont think tarpi has any doubt he's gonna put her in the squad.

It's not a hate thead. I was just telling the truth. But you guys can go on and drool over Maria wearing a jacket with the word RUSSIA on it, or Maria cheering for a squad that she's using to get into the Olympics. Think of this as that commercial that you know is telling the truth, so you decide to change channels.

Woah hold the phone don't think for one fucking second I am one of these Masha fans that worships the very ground she walks on OK?

I really don't care whether Maria plays in the Olympics or not because I for one will not be watching it, just don't wreck this thread for Sweet Cleopatra :(

I don't really care what Maria's intentions were to begin with to be honest. So what if it was for the Olympics or for any other reason. She'll get the Olympic spot anyway as long as she stays among the top Russian players. That pretty much is non-debatable. Just nice to see her there and seemingly having a great time.

The truth? How do you know what the truth is? Are you working as her PR agent or manager? Your reply is but definitely a hate thread.

When Maria doesn't go to Moscow, she gets criticized for not caring about her country and even say she's American but not Russian.

When Maria goes there, people just say she's just to earn a spot.

Can't you just realise the TRUTH that being selected or not DOESN"T require to play in Fed Cup. Did you read the regulations? The best two ranked players will be qualified. Please think and read before you criticize or give comments. You don't provide any evidence for your argument. Oh right, because it's just a hate thread so you don't have any evidence to support your speech but the irrational mind.
