  5. Sharapova : Time Out Seharusnya Kena Denda

    http://www.football-images.net/2014-08-29/327717aa041b881f1872ff9489e0bc70.jpg
    Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Setiap pemain mempunyai kesempatan untuk mengambil time out atau waktu rehat selama petenis tampil di lapangan pertandingan. Sayangnya, kesempatan itu sering kali disalahgunakan pemain hanya untuk mengatur kondisi fisiknya yang sudah tertekan dengan permainan lawan.

    Hal itulah yang mulai dikeluhkan Maria Sharapova. Komentar yang dikeluarkan petenis cantik Rusia bukan tanpa alasan. Sewaktu menjalani pertandingan semifinal melawan Ana Ivanovic di turnamen Cincinnati Masters lalu, kekasih Grigor Dimitrov sempat dibuat frustasi setelah pemain asal Serbia itu memanfaatkan time out sebagai alasannya guna mengatur fisik.

    Cara yang dilakukan Ivanovic terbilang sukses. Dia berhasil menyingkirkan Sharapova di semifinal dengan 6-2, 5-7, dan 7-5. Peristiwa kurang mengenakan itu kembali disinggung wartawan saat pemilik nama lengkap Maria Yuryevna Sharapova tampil di AS Terbuka 2014.

    Wartawan memberikan pertanyaan, jika Sharapova diberikan tanggung jawab untuk mendongkrak keberhasilan serta aturan dalam olahraga, apa yang akan Anda (Sharapova) lakukan bila kesempatan itu datang?

    Masha sapaan akrab Sharapova menjawab: "Saya mungkin akan membuat perubahan pada sistem time out. Saya pikir kita semua akan melihat secara jelas, siapa yang benar-benar menggunakan kesempatan istimewa itu dan tidak. Jika ada yang terbukti menyalahgunakan time out, maka saya akan memberikan sanksi sebesar USD2500. Ya, saya pikir kita harus melakukan itu dan menurut saya itu akan menyenangkan," jawabnya.
