Shriver made a comment on Twitter during the final about how Rybakina's coach is having the wrong approach. She would want her to part ways with him in order to find someone who treats her with respect at all times. It's something fans questioned in the comments as well but she did not back down from her comment:
"As I watch Rybakina try to win her second major in 7 months, I hope she finds a coach who speaks and treats her with respect at ALL times and does not ever accept anything less."
Tursunov responded to her publicly calling into question what she said:
"Pam, I have respected you as an entity in tennis but lately I’ve seen you write a lot of questionable things. This one has to top it off. In your quest to vilify random people in tennis for odd reasons, you have openly and publicly insulted a man who is solely responsible for."
"Not a good pattern for life": Shriver believes Rybakina shouldn't accept disrespect from coach Vukov
"the fact that you even know who Elena Rybakina is. You have zero clue what you are talking about and at the very least owe a public apology to a man who is a great coach in every sense of that word. You’d be lucky to ever reach that level and every player would be lucky to"
"have someone like that in their corner. The man is loyal to his player with every atom of his body and soul. It’s a shame you have proved time and time again that you are blind to see anything than bunch of gestures."
