“I don’t want to talk to these people.” The strange hysteria of the former Russian tennis player



Daria Saville suddenly began to divide people into good and bad. And started a “black list”.

Since September 19, the women’s tennis tournament under the auspices of the WTA has been held in Tokyo. Of the Russian athletes, Veronika Kudermetova and Lyudmila Samsonova take part in the competition. However, among the participants, fans could notice another familiar name: Daria Savill, who previously played for Russia and had the surname Gavrilova, performed under the flag of Australia at the tournament.

Already in the first round, Daria lost to the former first racket of the world, Naomi Osaka. Saville, due to an injury, refused to continue the fight with a score of 1:0 in favor of her opponent, and further medical examination revealed a cruciate ligament rupture in her.

However, Daria was noted in the news reports not only because of her injury: after the departure, the athlete expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of support from her colleagues.

Emotions from an unfortunate injury led to a strange hysteria in social networks!

And who is it?

Daria Gavrilova is a multiple champion of major tournaments in juniors, representing Russia until 2015. Among the main achievements are the victory at the WTA tournament in singles and two triumphs at the junior Grand Slam.

For some time, Daria was the first racket of the world among juniors, and in Russia she was considered one of the most promising tennis players. But in 2015, due to funding problems, Gavrilova decided to move to Australia and obtain the citizenship of this country.

In the future, Daria no longer achieved high sports results, including due to frequent injuries. In early 2022, the athlete married Australian tennis player Luke Saville and took his last name.

Most sports fans learned about Daria this spring, but not for sports reasons: after the worsening situation in Ukraine, the tennis player admitted on social networks that she was “ashamed to say that she is Russian.” However, after some time, Daria deleted her posts, explaining this by the persecution that had begun against her.

New tantrum

After her exit from the WTA competition, Saville burst into new emotional conclusions:

Thanks to everyone who wrote to me. It is very important for me. At the same time, I blacklist colleagues who saw me on crutches in Tokyo but didn’t say a single word to me. Why is it so hard to be a good person? It is very sad. To be honest, because of this, I don’t even want to return to the tour after recovery. I don’t want to deal with these people again. Thanks to those who took a second to say something to me. You are on the list of good people. I love you,” Daria wrote on social networks.

In connection with the early departure from the prestigious tournament and a serious injury, the emotions of the athlete are understandable and logical: at such moments, a person more than ever wants warm words of support. However, public emotions and indignation at the behavior of colleagues who did not consider it necessary to express support look as strange as possible.

Some athletes do not attach much importance to social networks, not considering them as a platform for expressing their emotions and opinions, but they can still be blacklisted by Daria Saville, who decided to go through all the “silent ones” at once and divide people into good and bad.

    Famous Ukrainian tennis player went to war zone




    world’s oldest 13 rackets Alexander Dolgopolov announced on his social networks that he was going to the war zone because he did not have time to wait:

    “Friends, as you probably noticed, Russia has declared a grave for the third time in its history. At the beginning, I said, if there is an opportunity to learn, we should use the time, it will not end like this. Those who could do nothing (like me, for example) were given sufficient time.

    Despite all the fears, I no longer see an opportunity to stay on the sidelines, this is a historic moment and I will not forgive myself if I do not participate. Take care of yourself and don’t forget the help you can afford. Glory to Ukraine!”.

    Alexander actively supported the ZSU and engaged in territorial defense.

    Earlier, Dolgopolov answered Elon Musk clearly and unequivocally to his “fantastic” statement about Crimea.

    Who are the qualifiers for the Turin 2022 ATP Finals?

    • Carlos Alcaraz
    • Rafael Nadal
    • Casper Rudd
    • Stefanos Tsitsipas

    September 2, Rafael Nadal became the first to qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin 2022. The Spaniard, surprisingly, has never won the tournament and will go for the feat in his 17th appearance. He reached the finals in 2010 and 2013.

    The second name is Carlos Alcaraz, which earned him a ticket to the semi-finals of the US Open (a tournament he would later win). The 19-year-old Spaniard is having a great time in 2022 and will make his first time at the Masters at the end of the year. He is emerging as one of the big contenders to retain the trophy and upset compatriot Nadal once again.

    Stefanos Tsitsipas He also got the ticket and will appear at the gala for the fourth time. It is worth noting that the Greek is only 24 years old and won it in 2019. Although 2022 has been an erratic season for the Greek (Masters 1000 titles in Monte Carlo and Mallorca), he has enough talent to confuse anyone in attendance. In 2021, due to injury, he played just one game (fell with Andrei Rublev).

    Casper Rudd, like Alcaraz, will have his first time at the max date and is perhaps the most surprising name. The Norwegian has had an amazing 2022, with finals at Roland Garros and the US Open, and has earned the right to be in contention. The ranking was achieved in late September after qualifying for the second round of the ATP 250 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

    Who are in the hunt to qualify for the ATP Finals Torino 2022?

    There are few points up for grabs (the last tournament is the M1000 in Paris, which concludes on November 6), but plenty of hopes and contenders to show up in Turin. Daniil Medvedev, who has managed to top the rankings in 2022, is yet to make the cut but is likely to qualify, as is Russia’s Andrei Rublev.

    Felix Auger-Aliassim also has his “virtual pass”, as does Novak Djokovic. The Serb, being a Grand Slam champion and staying in the top 20, would steal his presence Alexander Zverev, which is the actual eighth. The German has yet to return to action following his right ankle injury and surgery at Roland Garros.

    Those expecting a good end of the year and ranking are: Hubert Hurkacz, Taylor Fritz, Cameron Norrie, Jannik Sinner, Pablo Carreño Busta and Matteo Berrettini.
