Quote of the Day: Bartoli on Yuri Sharapov

He didn't put any pressure on me. He wasn't saying, 'You have to win,' or 'You have to do this or you have to do that'. He's not like Maria Sharapova's dad. It's completely different.

- Marion Bartoli on comparing father, Walter, to Yuri Sharapov

Damn - just put it all out there Marion. The Frenchie does have a point, though, since Maria's dad is, like, c-r-a-z-y.

  1. i remember last year during wimbledon the announcers mentioned that bartoli's dad used to tape tennis balls to the soles of her shoes to make her stand on her toes. there were some other stories about their relationship that creeped me out, too. so i don't think she's in a position to criticize anyone else's father.

  2. Watch for Maria to demolish her next time they meet.

  3. hehe that shouldn't be too hard these days...
