Sharapova explains withdrawl
    2018-03-22  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

COMPLAINING about poor service, a perceived snub and general life disappointments is part of social media culture.

And rarely does anyone get a satisfactory response. But Maria Sharapova’s response to a disappointed fan is worth a look.

A fan voiced his displeasure with Sharapova on Twitter after she withdrew from the Miami Open last week with a forearm injury. The fan said he had purchased tickets for a friend to see Sharapova play.

Surprisingly, the tennis star snapped back. “I don’t sign up for anything in my career unless I’m fully committed to it,” she wrote.

She went on to explain she felt numbness in her left arm 30 minutes before her first match at Indian Wells and then discovered there was an “air pocket” in her lung, which meant she couldn’t fly. Sharapova lost her first match to Naomi Osaka 6-4, 6-4 on March 7 at Indian Wells.

“So if the thought process is that I enjoy going through MRI, CT scans, injections, the five doctor specialists I have seen this past month ... I can honestly tell you that this time you’re incorrect.

“I am really sorry that you purchased 2 tickets for a friend who was looking forward to seeing me play live. But maybe this time, you can give me the benefit of the doubt and understand that I would trade all the above to compete in front of your friend.”
