A very light schedule until USO was doing no harm i guess. Then hiring & firing Connors was perfect for exploiting media. He played the muppet well.
I cant blame them using this ~2 months for business purposes. Thats in your sugarcontract when you sign up being pova stan. Take it or leave it.
The thing thats more infuriating is giving fake hope, spamming twitter/fb with all the training & gym pics & whatever every day and night. Thats the knife twisting at the moment. Go post about your hipster art collection or Justin Bieber all i care, but using fans this way was really really nasty.
That was so not cool.
I'd donate my shoudler if it wasnt a painfull mess also. Come back stronger, babe.
Unbelievable post, babe. Harsh but true. You won't blame them for the media exploits this summer but others will. It really is a game to them. It's their IMG way of life. As far as Pova goes I wish her a full recovery but I am sure there is more damage in her right shoulder than they are saying or know at this point. Maria has been through so much and her recovery from shoulder surgery has been the best in the history of tennis.
If she does come back I hope she finally hires a serve coach. But I doubt she will.
