How was it at Singapore exhibition between Sharapova and Chakvetadze?

Maria Sharapova, Anna Chakvetadze at Singapore exhibitionThere was a lot of talk about the exhibition match between Maria Sharapova and Anna Chakvetadze. Weeks before the match everybody was talking about it, Singapore went crazy for Maria. So, now that it’s over, what are people’s impressions? Fellow tennis blogger Nawin attended the event, and his impressions are mixed. I will just sum up what he said in his review, for his detailed story accompanied with photos visit Regentville Tennis Blog.

Nawin is happy that Singapore, after a long time, got the opportunity to welcome two high-profile tennis players. However, he hopes that this was just the beginning of big events organized in Singapore. He’s disappointed because the organization was bad, and the ball boys and girls were slow and uncoordinated. Also, the umpire had to do most of the work because line judges were unsure of the calls. As the match progressed, Maria and Anna clearly became frustrated with this.

Oops, I almost forgot: Maria Sharapova beat Anna Chakvetadze 6-0, 7-6(10). (photo via Sharapova’s website)

  1. not bothered

    Singaporean and a huge tennis fan here. I can't stand how the media reports as if the whole of Singapore went crazy over Sharapova. I can tell you, the majority of Singaporeans still do not know who she is, and do not care. And even a huge tennis fan like me, did not bother, even when offered free tickets (because the exhibition did not sell) refused to go, because I do not want to buy into her media circus that IMG creates for her

    Thanks for giving the other side of the story. I can imagine the situation. A few people presented it as a frenzy, and now the whole world believes it. I've noticed in the photos that there were not so many people at the exhibition, but I thought they came later… Hm… But what do you think, who are those who want to buy the auctioned stuff? And is it true that the tickets cost about $150, if that's true, no wonder so little people came.
