Sharapova Insists Shes Proud to be Russian...



Despite being the world's highest-earning sportswoman, Russian No. 1 tennis player Maria Sharapova says she's proud to hail from a run-down Siberian town.
I am really happy and proud of where I come from. It's fun to hear when they announce me and they don't just say born in Russia, they actually say I was born in Nyagan, Siberia, said Sharapova, who moved to Florida with her father when she was seven.
Every time I hear that, you can hear the crowd go 'whoa.' Like, I don't think people actually realize that's where I was born. When they say it I feel so proud."
It's like when they say I've won a Grand Slam or been No. 1, when they say where I am from, I get goosebumps because I am so proud of coming from there and getting to the position I am in today.
Moreover, staying in Russia would have prevented her becoming a professional player, Sharapova said.
I have no idea who I would be now, what I would be doing. Probably, Id have had a much more normal lifestyle, graduated from school and be working somewhere.
Sharapova burst onto the scene when she won Wimbledon in 2004 despite being seeded 13th, a success she followed up with wins at the 2006 U.S. Open and 2008 Australian Open.
Her quest to complete the career Grand Slam with a first French Open title in 2012 will continue with a second-round tie against Ayumi Morita of Japan, ranked 88th in the world.

Masha is cool. True fighter.

But I love Anya Kournikova much more. :D She is hotter and more feminine.

I*d hit her for sure.

Well maybe both.

Never met an expat male Russian that doesn't say he's proud to be Russian... but lots of female Russian expats I know, in fact all but two... they seem to want to forget that they're Russian.... I don't understand why. So it's good to see she's still proud.

I can understand some girls feeling ashamed, because of the infamous behavior of some Russian girls when they go on holiday.

In general, Russians have much to be proud about. They are one of the great cultures of the world. Of course, the Soviet period wasn't their "best" moment, but the German's had their Nazis, the American's their genocide of Native Americans and other great cultures have their "shames", as well.

And why not? The Soviets sent a man to space first than anyone else, they defeated the nazi, industrialized the country, etc. The list is endless. I lived in the Soviet time for 14 years, it wasn't bad at all for me personally. It was rather full of brutality, but hey, when did the US abolish segregation? And the US still practices capital punishment in some states, too, as well as arbitrary military interventions into sovereign countries, killing hundreds of thousands of people. So, everything is rather relative.

The problem with pride is that people who have nothing to be proud about start working around like Turkies, clucking about other peoples achievements, claiming them as their own on the basis that they share the same nationality... Russians in particular are especially good at this - this is a country full of 30 year old armchair generals, who explain to me every second day about how they won the 2nd world war..

Much better to do something productive instead of running around beating your chest like a gorilla, telling the world that you are proud to be black, gay or russian.

Authorities in the city of Orenburg have moved to oust dark-skinned foreign students from a dormitory located near several children's summer camps, citing concerns about safety.



It was explained that the city's deputy head Valentina Snatenkova later explained to him the administration's real concern at a meeting to discuss the situation.

"Can you imagine the reaction if negroes were walking around there? They can rape children, you know," Sviridov quoted Snatenkova as saying.

Well, I don't want to offend anyone, but keep in mind that the Soviet Union signed a "pact" with the Nazis before the war started, which left the country completely unprepared and led to the deaths of 27 million people in the Soviet Union. Had the US and UK decided to support Germany, instead of the Soviet Union, then the outcome would have been much different. So, it was NOT just the Soviet Union who won that war. That is a Soviet myth.
It's hardly a "victory" when you lose 27 million to "win" and your country is completely destroyed. Moreover, following the war, the Soviet Union occupied and oppressed the entire Eastern Europe for 40 years (of course calling themselves, "liberators"). When the American, British:uk: and Canadian veterans go to Normandy, France each year for memorial services, the people give them FREE rooms and meals during their stay and treat them as heroes. I don't see that happening much to Russian veterans in Eastern Europe. I wonder why?

Yes agreed, the space achievements, and industrialization was impressive, but at what cost? By the 1980's the Soviet Union was completely economically backwards and by the early 1990's it collapsed (whereas the Western world experienced the greatest economic development in the history of the modern world), leaving the country bankrupt, dysfunctional, the military in shambles and the people struggling to rebuild for the next 30 years or more. This is why I say it was not their, "best moment".

It is also why many Russians left the country, looking to maximize their talents. Good for them and the world. What would the world be today without Google? (founded by Sergei Brin, born in Moscow, USSR)

the Soviet Union signed a "pact" with the Nazis before the war started - because Poland, France and UK have declined proposals of USSR about the system of collective security in Europe.

which left the country completely unprepared - would it be "completely", we'd never won. Yes, by the price of 27 millions (8 of army and 19 of non-combatants).

Soviet Union occupied and oppressed the entire Eastern Europe - and it was agreed by UK and US in Tehran, Yalta and Potsdam conferences, no? ;)

Had the US and UK decided to support Germany, instead of the Soviet Union, then the outcome would have been much different. - surely. Especially keeping in mind UK already was in war with Germany for 2 years at June of 1941 and Battle of Britain already has occured. Regarding US... Should I remind you words of President Harry S. Truman? "...and let them kill one another" ;)

What would the world be today without Google? - maybe you won't believe, but before Geat and Awfull Google there were a lot of search engines - Yahoo, Altavista, ask.com and couple of others. ;)

Some good points, however I would argue:

- the "Molotov-Ribbentrop" agreement was NOT a "security" pact. Ask Poland and the Baltic countries about this.

- true, they were NOT "completely" unprepared. They had already designed and had in production what would become the most important battle tank of the war, T-34. It was both critical in defensive and offensive campaigns.

- yes, post-war military administrations were agreed at Potsdam, but the countries were promised self-determination, which did not happen in the territories with Soviet military administrations (with the exception of Austria). The Hungarian Uprising, was a true tragedy, for which the West ignored to avoid war with the Soviet Union.

- yes, the Americans came into the war late, however prior to declaring war they were providing billions of dollars worth of supplies to the UK and the Soviet Union (including, even the Russian Army uniforms), which was critical for the war effort. When the Americans finally did enter the war, of course it was GAME OVER for Germany, they had NO chance in the long-term because of their limited resources.

- honestly, when was the last time you used a search engine besides Yandex or Google??

- the "Molotov-Ribbentrop" agreement was NOT a "security" pact. Ask Poland and the Baltic countries about this.
I never said it was "security" one. Security for Europe was declined, as the last chance we pulled begin of war this way.
About Poland. We entered eastern parts of Poland 17th Sep 1939, when Polish army already was in catastrophic situation and Polish government was in Kuty preparing to cross Polish-Romanian border.
Baltic countries entered USSR (almost ;)) volunteer way. At least they didn't resist.


- true, they were NOT "completely" unprepared. They had already designed and had in production what would become the most important battle tank of the war, T-34. It was both critical in defensive and offensive campaigns.
Not only T-34. Both heavy KV-1 and KV-2 were in MP already. Production centers for aviation, tanks and armament in Siberia, Ural and Far East were created before mid-1941.


- yes, post-war military administrations were agreed at Potsdam, but the countries were promised self-determination, which did not happen in the territories with Soviet military administrations (with the exception of Austria). The Hungarian Uprising, was a true tragedy, for which the West ignored to avoid war with the Soviet Union.
Yes, and they have successfully self-determined ;) as socialistic ones, excluding Austria (BTW USSR was an initiator to make it independent state, in 1955 - before it had 4 zones of occupation, as same as Germany), Norway and Finland. West ignored so called "Prague Spring" in 1968 too. ;)


- yes, the Americans came into the war late, however prior to declaring war they were providing billions of dollars worth of supplies to the UK and the Soviet Union (including, even the Russian Army uniforms), which was critical for the war effort. When the Americans finally did enter the war, of course it was GAME OVER for Germany, they had NO chance in the long-term because of their limited resources.
I know - but not whole uniform - boots. And canned meat (Soviet soldiers called it "second front" for 3 years - 1942, 1943, 1944). And aluminium alloys for our airplanes. And your airplanes too ("Air Cobra"). And exploisive materials (TNT). And trucks + Dodge 3/4.
And we've paid these billions back, right (according to land-lease conditions)?
Americans finally entered the war in 1944 because their politicians were afraid that all Europe will be liberated by Red Army (we've crossed state border 27th Mar 1944, Normandian operation has started 6th June 1944)

I don't see that happening much to Russian veterans in Eastern Europe. I wonder why?

You have a totally brainwashed approach to this issue, well, I cannot blame you, such is your teaching system in the West - 1984 in action. When I was in the US some Americans even tried to speak German to me, thinking I was supposed to know it since USSR was occupied by the nazi back then, at least partially.
I am not going to argue your numerous points, though I can easily debunk each one, will tell you just one thing: Hitler put the whole Western Europe to its knees by the time he attacked USSR, and USSR became the first country to beat the nazi, who had been viewed invincible by that time. The West was just watching who was going to have the upper hand and opened the second front only when it became clear who was winning (3 years after Hitler attacked the Soviet Union). You did not take up the nazi side for obvious reasons - Stalin was not a lunatic like Hitler, he was not bombing the Great Britain, for example, he did not start this mess, in the first place.
My father was in the military, I was in Czechoslovakia in 1981-1986 with him, we had many Czeck friends there, the attitude was very friendly. I was walking freely around the Czeck towns and no one did me any harm. Et cetera. Divide the propaganda you have been dished out in the West by at least two and you will be ok - just an advice.
Just one more point - we occupied the Eastern Europe for 40 years, you still keep the whole Europe occupied - ask Jack who is a retired US army officer here on this forum.:)) And look at the map of the US military bases in Europe!

Nice of her to remember her roots...I wonder if many Russians that live and travel abroad are proud to say that they are Russian...

Sharapova Insists Shes Proud to be Russian...



Despite being the world's highest-earning sportswoman, Russian No. 1 tennis player Maria Sharapova says she's proud to hail from a run-down Siberian town.
I am really happy and proud of where I come from. It's fun to hear when they announce me and they don't just say born in Russia, they actually say I was born in Nyagan, Siberia, said Sharapova, who moved to Florida with her father when she was seven.
Every time I hear that, you can hear the crowd go 'whoa.' Like, I don't think people actually realize that's where I was born. When they say it I feel so proud."
It's like when they say I've won a Grand Slam or been No. 1, when they say where I am from, I get goosebumps because I am so proud of coming from there and getting to the position I am in today.
Moreover, staying in Russia would have prevented her becoming a professional player, Sharapova said.
I have no idea who I would be now, what I would be doing. Probably, Id have had a much more normal lifestyle, graduated from school and be working somewhere.
Sharapova burst onto the scene when she won Wimbledon in 2004 despite being seeded 13th, a success she followed up with wins at the 2006 U.S. Open and 2008 Australian Open.
Her quest to complete the career Grand Slam with a first French Open title in 2012 will continue with a second-round tie against Ayumi Morita of Japan, ranked 88th in the world.



Oh look her boobs!
I swear this photo was taken like this deliberately!

Still angry at the fact that in tennis, the uniform is still a short skirt (well, a very short one). When will they stop the sexualisation of women?


I know, no link whatsoever with our post, but I really like tennis and my local clubs have the same dress code :(!!!!

Nothing wrong with that, the women feel comfortable in short skirts, helps them move around better...if it was a big deal they(the players) would have complained years ago..
Now if you were to mention women's beach volleyball you might have a case, but the argument is the same..The women taking part in this sport also don't mind to show off their body..
Roll on the London Olympics:cold:

She may not have asked for it, but those pictures are a great reminder that even as a great female tennis player, her greatet strength remains her sexual appeal.
