Kuznetsova, Chakvetadze Slam Shamapova

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports:

Maria Sharapova went to Russia last week to angle for a chance to play in the Olympics. What she got was a different understanding of the term "cold war."

"To be honest, I don't know why she came. What's the point of coming here all the way from America if you can't play? She said she wanted to help our preparation and be our practice partner but, to me, if you can't play how then can you practice? It just doesn't make sense." That was Svetlana Kuznetsova, talking to the Russian media, and looking at the glass half-empty. Had she even asked herself, "Hey, who's going to pick up all these balls?"

Anna Chakvetadze was also not a huge fan of Sharapova's last-minute trip. "If you haven't played Fed Cup all year, it wouldn't be fair just to show up for the final," she said in a news conference. "It's not fair to all the other girls who committed themselves to the team's cause."

If only they'd been reading La Russophobe, they could have saved themselves so much trouble. We'd say we hate to say we told you so, but we love to say we told you so. WE TOLD YOU SO!! Maybe now all those Russophile idiots who question our bashing of Shamapova can turn their attention to Russians Kuznetsova and Chakvetadze and question them for a while.
