Count me out if Sharapova's father's there, says Myskina

Anastasia Myskina, spearheading Russia's challenge for their first Fed Cup title this week, says she will stop playing for her country if Maria Sharapova , in the company of her father, is invited to join the team next year.
"If she (Sharapova) joins our team next season you won't see me there for sure," the French Open champion told reporters after crushing Austria's Patricia Wartusch 6-0 6-0 on Wednesday.

Larisa Neiland, Tarpishchev's assistant, said she felt it would be difficult for the 17-year-old to break into the team because of her "nasty father".
"Maria's main problem is her father and I just don't see how he would co-exist with other girls' parents and team officials," six-times grand slam doubles champion Neiland told Reuters.
Pointing to the season-ending WTA Tour Championships, won by Florida-based Sharapova in Los Angeles, Neiland said: "Every time Maria was playing a Russian girl, her father's behaviour was simply outrageous, nasty and out of control."
