The reaction of Maria on match point was perhaps intense but absolutely not disrespectful. Maria has done the same or similar after winning other matches that she considered important. Clearly, this was one of them.
The reaction from Maria's detractors is simply nonsense. Reading some of the comments and a few press releases I thought Masha was fist-pumping on Venus' face or something like that. Bollocks (sorry for the French....)
That's what I thought too after reading the comments and was like
no maria why do that! Than I saw the video and was like wait did I miss it what was so disrespectful about it and I didn't notice any reaction from Venus about it either
i don't know maybe it's just me
