I don't think it will make any difference at all if she goes into the tournament as Sharapova of Sugarpova. If she plays well enough she'll win and if she doesn't she won't. But this little bit of sugarpova nonsense won't have anything to do with it.

Hiring Connors wasn't as bad as people make out considering she'd worked with him briefly before and enjoyed the experience, and Yuri pushed for it too. (Just because it didn't work out doesn't mean it was unjustified).

The fact that she ended the partnership quickly is telling, she knew going in that it would take a while for them to click. She's been through this with Hoggy. The fact that she ended it so quickly indicates that something happened which showed it was never going to work. So it was best to end the partnership quickly.

US Open HIGHLY commercial and they know it. Why not manipulate to gain free publicity for her own premium brand?

And how is she gonna hurt her reputation for SugarPova publicity? This bitch has been promoting SugarPova every since it came out. Are we gonna say her interviews with Chelsea, CBS Morning Show (which are all done with the sole intention of Sugarpova promotion) are damaging her reputation as a tennis player?

Her career and brand are already firmly established! I don't give a damn how the media and the casual tennis fans are gonna perceive her as the Kournikova 2.0 at this point.

Doubt her tennis skills, doubt her tennis IQ, doubt her game but NEVER doubt her commitment to tennis!

But who cares? lol

Thank god there are people like you who still have some common sense around here

I really don't post a lot around here, and believe it or not, but that has nothing to do with GM, but with the weekly meltdowns that occur around here. It's 'so' predictable at this point, and not just the meltdowns, but also the backtracking that happens afterwards.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

does she really need a coach now with all the experience she's gathered over the years? I doubt that her technique, which is pretty sound to begin with, needs any serious tinkering. More than anything she needs good conditioning and fitness now, seeing as how she went off the rails in that match against Hyphens. Normal fit Maria NEVER loses a match to those sort of players, especially not when she's 6-2 2-0 up.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Do you think any of the idiots who think it's super witty to refer to Maria as 'Sugarpova' realise that they are giving her brand even more exposure? I mean, seriously people.

You must be a very smart lady if you can make even your haters do an excellent job for you without them even realizing it.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Ugh. This seems silly but I think of the Russia GLBT situation and I can't help wondering what Maria thinks about it all. I'd like to think she's above that sort of thing but she's still proudly Russian and I can't help it .

I feel the same wary feeling with all the Russian players now . Then again Ana's from Serbia which is almost as bad. IDK. I know it's silly but I can't help it.

One of Maria's closest friends is gay, and she just went to his wedding... I don't think you have to worry on that front.

Where do you guys get all this informations?
Anyway, I believe that Maria is more than fine with glbtq population. Basically she's a gay icon.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I could see Federer going deep at the Open. He looks as healthy as he has in months, and if there's no Nadal in the quarters he could get to the finals. But damn that. I want my Fedal match up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPJnCmhuBYw

Fed has had the worst luck this year. He keeps drawing Rafa I just wish her would have gotten Ferrer.

Me too. But you never know. If he gets to the fourth round to play Rafa I'll be John Isner's biggest fan for a day. Give us a 7-6/6-7/7-6/6-7/7-6 Johnny boy.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

No thanks.

Davydenko's in Rafa's draw and he's the only dude who's played Nadal more than a few times and has a winning record against him. So, put a lil' faith in Davy if you dare. I would prefer a borderline easy win for Nadal, but not an embarrassing loss for Fed, in a Fedal quarters, with the traditional sight of Nadal cuddling/comforting Federer at net.
