The preperations for the debut of Sharapova in the fed cup clash against Israel are now getting intensive.
Today, The Russian federation sent to Israel their demands for their main star, Maria Sharapova: Personal guarding not only in the stadium as it is written in the international requirement but 24/7. in addition, they declared that she will not give any interviews for the local media except the formal press conference.
These demands are only relating to Maria Sharapova, not for the other members of the Russian team.:cool:

I think she will get injured again 2 days before playing anyway

It was a Davis cup and the Israeli croud is used to provide his players some home feeling.
It will probably be the same in this Fed Cup tie against Russia.

why did they cancel Anda Open but have Fed Cup?

Because WTA has new demands for more money in order to make the tournament happen more than once. Lack of money is the only reason it was canceled.:sad:

At least we are going to have some real matches while the russians are here. :wavey:

24/7 security is not unusual in international sport...especially when its played in areas where there has been trouble.
It wouldnt be different if it was her 3432432th time playing either.

When I published this report, I didn't knew how people will respond. I think that people didn't read the report but only the title...In the end, somebody understood the report well....:worship:

so basically:
1. It is not because terror, nothing to do because it is middle east.
2. The request was for PERSONAL bodyguards in contrast to the team guards as it is happens all over the world.
3. Maria have bodyguards everywhere. there is nothing special beside that she will have different type of security, as she have all over the world.

Not the hebrew link, the english summary. it is very clear.
The other players hardly have bodyguards all over the year.

Yes, I think that the special sutuation might complicate the relationship within the russian team but the relationship of Maria with the other russian players is well known subject without this issue...

Cant see how it would affect the relationship between the players. Theyre big girls now and would be used this sort of thing, you'd think the others would be happy to be a position to not require their own bodyguards 24/7. Its not like the rest are going to be left out in the dark without any security anyway.

so only her with security yes that is great!!! :rolleyes:.....let the others be attacked when the attackers see they canīt do something to Sharapova because of the security all over her.....

I think she will get injured again 2 days before playing anyway


:o:o

Nowhere does it say that she is the ONLY one with security. She is the only one with 24/7 security, and she is the only one who needs it. Resources are limited, and you have to spread them strategically - the ones who need more protection gets more protection, the ones who don't don't. It's not about being overly dramatic or saying one's safety is more important than others. It's saying that since it is MORE likely that Sharapova will be targeted, it is more economical and efficient if more guards were placed on her where others will get less. The motive behind any terrorist attack is not necessarily that they want to just take down somebody. It's that they want the act to garner attention, and harming or more likely kidnapping an international figure like Sharapova, who is worth millions, will accomplish that better than say kidnapping the number 20th ranked player in the world who most people don't know about. If attackers are going to spend the money, expertise and time to collaborate an attack, it will be at someone who will get them what they want. Thus, the special request is just good sense and being smart. Anyone who complains about it or opposes it must lack the education and understanding of basic terrorist psychology and everyday economics.

but im sorry, maria is looking much better and is definitely someone who u can promote better.

so why do u spend time talking shit about her? :lol:
u are ridiculous, are u not man enough to say it in her face? better u do it in a forum where nobody knows who u are and behave like a real loser lol
I dont have to insult any players, cuz I respect them and why should I insult someone like serena? I would have more reasons to insult her than you ;) serena said some bad things about maria and beat her two times extremely hard.

Why would anyone target her?

She's not Jewish, she's not Israeli - Crime wise, to comapre Israel to Russia or to the US is laughable, we have much lower crime percentage.

If a suicide bomber decide to target HER for a reason I can't quite grasp (and who would would want to piss off the Russians?), no bodyguards would stop him.

Nowhere does it say that she is the ONLY one with security. She is the only one with 24/7 security, and she is the only one who needs it. Resources are limited, and you have to spread them strategically - the ones who need more protection gets more protection, the ones who don't don't. It's not about being overly dramatic or saying one's safety is more important than others. It's saying that since it is MORE likely that Sharapova will be targeted, it is more economical and efficient if more guards were placed on her where others will get less. The motive behind any terrorist attack is not necessarily that they want to just take down somebody. It's that they want the act to garner attention, and harming or more likely kidnapping an international figure like Sharapova, who is worth millions, will accomplish that better than say kidnapping the number 20th ranked player in the world who most people don't know about. If attackers are going to spend the money, expertise and time to collaborate an attack, it will be at someone who will get them what they want. Thus, the special request is just good sense and being smart. Anyone who complains about it or opposes it must lack the education and understanding of basic terrorist psychology and everyday economics.

You sound like you make a lot of sense, but you lack basic understanding about Israel, terorism in Israel vs Terrorism in other countries. Same as Sharapova, probably.

Assuming Maria doesn't intend to visit Gaza wearing "I love Israel" T-shirt, she can sleep easy, no one would kidnap her.

I'm more likely to get kidnapped in Russia than she's likely to get kidnapped in Israel, come on.

Israel (or terrorism in Israel) doesn't work like other countries, in the sense that international terrorism (Al Qaida style) hasn't really gotten here. We suffer from localized terrorism, due to our boarders (among other things) dispute with the Palastinians. Enterance to Israel is VERY carefully monitored, to say the least.

And if you think that any Palastianins terrorist organization would attempt to kidnap Sharapova than you don't know a thing about the middle east. They are trying to earn credibility with the west, that's unlikely to help them get it. Never mind that I assume security would be tight as it is, regardless of Pova's special demends.

And all of that has got nothing to do with her unwillingness to give even one single interview to the local press.

I just don't understand why OUR tennis federation has to pay for this shit.

Not the hebrew link, the english summary. it is very clear.
The other players hardly have bodyguards all over the year.

Yes, I think that the special sutuation might complicate the relationship within the russian team but the relationship of Maria with the other russian players is well known subject without this issue...

So, when she's in the states she has 24/7 security? Same when she travels to tournaments? She has 24/7 bodygaurds?

If so, I take what I said earlier. I got the impression it was just for Israel.

the Palestinians are not terrorists ,

Of course not, and I was not trying to imply that, if my English got screwy, I apologize.

My point was basically that the Palestinians *who are terrorists*, have no interest in kidnapping Pova. This can only harm their cause.

I was just trying to point out the difference between the terrorism Israel deals with, and the other kind. Kidnapping of forgien celebrities who visit Israel just isn't something that happens here, so talks about terrorists that might kidnap Pova is just silly.

The only ones who get kidnapped here are Israeli soldiors and sometimes forgien press inside Gaza.

If Pova is worried about the fans, and has that type of security everywhere, than I have no problems with that - I just don't get why we have to foot the bill for that.

Edit:

Okay, I just noticed Sweetcleo flag, and I haven't before.

I did not mean to give offense or generalize in anyway, should have named the militant groups or something.

It's quite obvious, to me, at least - that most Palestinians are peace loving people and would like nothing more than some peace and quiet.

Just like us.

Oh, I didn't realize you can put any flag.

We can move on to discuss this on private message, if you'd like - but your idea is nice on paper, and impossible in real life, I'm afraid.

Some people support this idea, but I feel IRL - it's destined to faliture.
