She seems like a total bich. She pumps her fist when her opponent hits it into the net and always acts serious and ****ed off. get over yourself princess. Why dont you go out and buy a personality. Not even going to get into the obnoxious grunting.

Not that I am a fan on Sharapova but she isn't the only player male or female that does that. Its just that her matches are annoying to watch.

She has the worst grunting of anyone. its not a grunt, it is an obnoxious scream.

As for pumping her first, she does it everytime her opponent hits an UNFORCED error. Most people do that if they won a tough point or hit a winner. She would pump her first at a double fault. Her daddy obviously let her boss him around all these years.

I usually find myself rooting against her (much like this FO crowd). I really wish shrieking/screaming/grunting, whatever, was prohibited and warnings could be issued. It's distracting enough to me as a viewer, and I couldn't imagine actually playing against someone that annoying.

lol, who could blame him for letting her boss him around, she is clearly the golden goose. But I think some of that comes from him too, sometimes he seems really upbeat but looking at this match he is very calm for his standards.

Maybe because he knows she doesn't have much chance in the tournament if she even wins this match.

Wow!!

The crowd is giving it to her..lol but good win for her. Now its up to the next opponent.

Don't look now, Serena is next , another muted match.

The scream is similar to that of the Williamses when points get close. The one thing that is likeable is her fighting ability, she digs down deep for some of those points. But her head has gotten really big since her first slam win. A perfect example of success getting to one's head. But hey, a rich, tall, skinny, blonde girl that even plays good tennis, what did you expect?

As much as I wanted Patty to win that match, Sharapova did very well to turn that match around. The crowd started booing her but she did well silencing them by playing better.

If she pumps her fist at the face of her opponent -- that's not good. But if she does it without looking at the opponent... then I don't see anything wrong with that. It's a strive to win... just like Seles was doing so.

Nadal does that all the time.

I've seen Nadal fistpump on unforced errors plenty of times with the "Vamos" added in it.

I also see Nadal fistpump when his opponents hit a double fault.

Ill tell you what I win and lose with grace, congratulate my opponents for nice shots. I bet you are a total headcase on the court if you dont mind her antics.

She is really getting out of hand, wish another player would put her in her place when she pulls her crap. Her antics have no place in the game, if a male player pulled all the crap she pulled i have no doubt there would eventually be a fist fight on the court.
A little gamesmanship is ok, but enough is enough.

I think Schyneder was a class act out there.

And the answer to the OP is a resounding NO, Sharapova and her runt of a father have no likeability whatsoever.

Once or twice a match you might see Nadal do that, Sharapova does it nearly ever time, enough is enough

If Cheatapova is the future of women's tennis, I'd sooner stopping watching women's tennis. Shrieking is one thing. Cheating is yet another.

she's fit so who cares...but apparently she's a stuck up biatch in real life who is really arrogant...my friend's dad knows her dad cos he's a russian millionaire or something and he met her once and said she was really cocky.

she was serving and someone yelled out during her toss, Schynder put here arm up ref didnt see it, she didnt try for a return, Sharapova got an ace, and acted like she didn't see her hand up.

Well, for the fist pumping, she is just trying to generate energy and support, since no one in the crowd is doing it for her. I think he always acting serious on the court is just how she psychs people out. Shows no emotion, doesn't let things get to her. As for the shrieking, I think Nadal and Serena are worse. Serena literally screams come on at your face. Outside of the court Sharapova has a lot of personality.

Oh, and as for the hand thing, he was saying that the shout shouldn't have affected her return, had sharapova missed the serve, I think they would have replayed the point. The shout came in the middle of her serve, so Maria wouldn't have been able to stop the point. So don't say she cheated.

I know you're a Nadal hater but he's not even as bad as you make it out to be. But if you wanna go there I've seen Fed yell out c'mon after an unforced error too.

Right, so you are a sharapova fan? If so, let's completely discount your opinion as wrong, if not, lets still completely discount your opinion. She IS mean, she DOESN'T have personality, I agree Serena and Rafa are bad, but so is Shriekpova.

Are you kidding me ? with such a important match on the line, Maria never saw Patty's hands go up to begin with. and when Patty put her hand up, maria's racket was in mid swing and actually her racket was on its way up. there is no way maria could have seen that. plus the umpire even said patty called time too late.

Sure, she, like Henin and Djokovic and all the current great players, use a little bit of trickery/disruption techniques, but you can't say she doesn't have talent. You're saying she didn't have talent winning that Wimbledon title? before she was (un)popular?

She's tall and strong and hits well at times, but she really is over rated and totally one dimensional.

I cannot for the life of me understand why the tennis authorities tolerate her screeching. It's important for a player to hear the ball struck and playing against her, that's just not possible.

Let's all email Wimbledon and ask (or demand) they put a ban on over the top grunts and screeches. Surely there are enough other top players around to make the event popular without having to pander to her every whim!

I could imagine the same exact Sharapova getting NONE of this attention if she weren't ranked SO HIGH ABOVE THE REST. Would you guys still honestly talk about her if she were ranked 200+ and was practically behind the scenes? It's obvious that you guys are talking about ANOTHER issue here.

No, someone agrees--I agree. It's one thing to hate someone's game. To claim to know that a tennis player is a terrible person based on the limited views we have of her is silly. We don't know these people. We don't.

There are players I like and player I don't like. There are things I can't stand about certain players, but it rarely crosses to bridge from annoyance to rage. Sharpova haters take it all to a new level. It's silly. Just plain silly.

I think Sharapova fights hard, though she is not a favorite of mine and I avoid to watch her play. I thought the same thing watching her match against Patty at the French Open, often the shrieking was far enough after she'd hit the ball that it seemed to made it difficult for her opponent to time her shots, and especially difficult to know whether a linesperson had called a ball out or not. But to refer as to hating her, I don't know her personally, IMO no one who doesn't know her well should say such. One can dislike the shrieking, the fistpumps or whatever, but hating an individual based on that? Rather shaky.
