Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

But it's not because they are pro-Bouchard. It is because they are anti-Sharapova.

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

Isn't the 'position of power' the fact that she says many players wished her good luck and she won for all of them? Strength in numbers etc.

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

Intentionally trying to make someone feel bad and then backing it up by saying you're supported by others and you're doing the will of the people, I classify as bullying personally.

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

"Everyone" and "lots of players" literally make no difference to the context of the quote.

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

What are you on about? I am a liar for what? I think you are splitting hairs here. It makes no difference if she said "everyone" or "lots of players". My point is, even if lots of players did wish...

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

1) "Everyone"/"Lots of players" - same thing. She's still proclaiming that many players came up to her and wished her support against a fellow player.

2) Yes. She did say "she won it for all of...

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

I completely agree. Players who have been beaten multiple times by Maria or are jealous of her success are joining forces to say how hated Maria is. If they're not doing it to Lepchenko, then it's...

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

Yes. There is a difference between saying "I am way above that" and saying "I won for everyone/everyone wished me good luck". Maria would never gang up on someone, 100% certain of that.

Re: Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

Not really. I feel like she's using the excuse that 'everyone feels the same' to justify her actions and comments. It's not exactly nice the way she's trying to make Sharapova look totally hated. I...

Bouchard's comments: verging on bullying?

Not that I think Maria will care in the slightest - and I am sure some of you will roll your eyes as I am a Maria Sharapova fan - but the way Bouchard has handled the whole Maria comeback has really...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

Oh for goodness sake, you're so hateful. Mladenovic didn't have any revenge to take. Maria was never personally outspoken about Mladenovic. It was the other way round.

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

I agree. If they are going to announce it and have a live feed regarding Maria's WC alone, I think it would be in pretty poor taste and also they will be feeding off the situation to draw more...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

With the physique that Sam Stosur has, I am sure she would take some sort of legal supplement that would improve muscle growth and repair. If one day that supplement is banned, would you say Sam had...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

There are so many things that help performance and remain legal. Creatine, L-carnitine, BCAAs... These are all still legal and no one has a problem with anyone taking them. As meldonium wasn't...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

If it wasn't even being monitored, why would someone who takes it ever think what they are doing is wrong?

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

As someone with a background in law, if something is not illegal, it is legal. Other players took meldonium, so WADA would have been aware of it and it was regulated. It was only because the number...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

If people have such a negative opinion about Maria taking meldonium (for taking it for whatever reason), then why aren't they going after Lepchenko? Why aren't being going after BMS for her...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

I appreciate your opinion but I can't agree with your statement that her previous successes are questionable, especially if she wins Stuttgart and obviously without meldonium. It just proves that it...

Re: Sharapova and the French wildcard now a lot more likely

So if she wins Stuttgart - her first tournament back - after 15 months out, and obviously without meldonium, instead of accepting that meldonium likely has no PED qualities nor did it enhance her...

Re: Rome Tournament Director: "No WC for Schiavone, if she wants she can play prequal

For all the people that are disgusted with the fact Maria is getting a WC, there are just as many people who are delighted and can't wait to see her on the big stages. Schiavone may be one of Italy's...
