She lives in the USA, where this sort of thing is not tolerated.
Also, I believe she has friends who are gay or lesbian.


And as I clearly stated, other players, Russians or not, will be asked this question.
You seem to be acting as if Maria is being persecuted.

Similar money is spent in russia.

The only difference is, that Moscow is the centre while in America, each state can have their own crazy law...



That is what the olympic spirit is (officially) about... And that is why I was asking @tennisbum79, why he was so interested in Sharapova's opinion in particular.



In 1936 there was no boycott. A black man was running and winning in front of Adolf Hitler...

Only politicians can make a judgement as in 1964 with South Africa, and not a single athlete. Russia is a power house. They have power, they have money, they have leverage, formula one, athletics grand prix meetings and world championships, FIFA, etc.

But an athlete cannot make a change. Of course, a single one can say, 'I don't go there', but others will participate.
You are mistaken. Athletes can speak out on issues they care about.
And many did about South Africa.
Speaking out does not necessarily mean a boycott. Although in some cases, there are no other alternatives.
I agree that a boycott decision in an event such as the Olympics is ultimately a government decision.
However, popular support can drive a government to a boycott decision.
This happened in the case of South Africa.

If you read through the thread it's mostly been discussing whether or not Maria is a lesbian and now Russia's LGBT stance.

You certainly play the role of a prosecutor.

I know that, it was Jimmie's fault mostly. It's just ridiculous that people over analyze their behavior, pics, if they were holding hands, if there was a Nike logo etc. How people even come to ideas like these is beyond me. I mean, why would I care? If this is for real, good for them. If it's fake, it sucks for them that they are forced to something that stupid. End of story.

I'm sure she doesn't agree with it considering one of her best friends is gay and she recently attended his wedding, but the Ru$$ian market is also a big one when it comes to the Sharapova brand.
I agree, but also I don't think it's just a case of financial concerns. I also think, despite people characterising her as a de-facto American, I get the sense she genuinely does care what the Russian public thinks of her, and her popularity has really been surging there over the past couple of years after they were previously very lukewarm towards her (basically because they now have no choice but to support Maria, whereas a few years ago they had their pick of top Russian players to choose from to support ). But criticising the Russian government on a world stage would turn her name to mud there.

My guess is, at very most, she'll make some bland, generic statement that she believes in equal right for gays but without specifically condemning the Russian government and certainly not supporting any boycotts or whatever. Or, more likely, she'll just refuse to answer any questions and say she doesn't do politics.

Oh come on. They are not together. Everybody knows that Dimitrov is dating Tursunov. Maybe in a few days we'll find out that Sharapova is dating Mauresmo. You never know.

Some people on this TF are so soft!!! These are real life questions popular athletes are called upon to give their opinion on.
As of this writing, the IOC is not satisfied with the Russian government re-assurance that they will leave the Olympics athletes alone.

Re: According to ESPN journalist, Sharapova and Dimitrov are dating

There's too much money involved these days in sport to waste time on boycotts because of gay laws in Russia. Get real, people, the Cold War is over and everyone's got too much $$$ to lose for the sake of it

What is soft in that I dont care if they want to voice their opinion or not? Its their choice. But some internet trolls DEMANDING it is rather nauseating.

Also IOC fine McDonalds and Coca Cola long time sponsoring their events. I guess diabetes is more acceptable then.
