Maria Sharapova

Former tennis beauty Maria Sharapova had a lot to say at the Bloomberg conference! She criticized the current state of women’s tennis and said there isn’t enough marketing or prize money. She used current US Open winner Coco Gauff as a perfect example to elaborate the issues in WTA Tour.

“I mean it’s a loaded question. There are a lot of options and roads. I mean look… let’s start with the fact you had Ted on the stage and I was listening to his talk on my way here and he spoke about engagement and the importance of engagement.”

Sharapova further added that there’s also lack of culture in tennis in the US and people aren’t aware of the latest news or updates.

“She got to the semifinals and lost but I’m sure 99% of the audience at the US Open had no idea where she was playing next. Right away that’s off the bat, that’s a problem,” she added.

Tommy Paul adds his thoughts about the crisis of US tennis

Just before Sharapova stated her words, Tommy Paul also talked about the crisis a few days ago.

“Tennis in the United States does not interest anyone. I would put it as the 20th most important sport in the country”, He added.

Both players talked about the negligence in tennis and shared their thoughts. The 36- year- old blond beauty has talked about Gauff’s ability to transcend tennis and attract a wider range of audience before.

“I have been saying this for years… I think she has the ability to transcend the sport, bridging entertainment and sport and culture and fashion. She’s got such a great voice and most importantly, she is an amazing competitor which is just like the full package.”

As everyone is keeping their hopes and expectations high for Coco Gauff, now it’s time to see if she can really become the next Serena Williams.

Leave us your thoughts on what you think about the lackluster state of American tennis.

  1. Thanks for this excellent article. Also a thing is that a lot of digital cameras are available equipped with the zoom lens that allows more or less of that scene to be included simply by ‘zooming’ in and out. These changes in concentration length are generally reflected inside viewfinder and on significant display screen right on the back of this camera.
