    Proud to be Russian!!!!

    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.

    Masha is cool. True fighter.

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

    I*d hit her for sure.

    Well maybe both.

    If I was in the right mood.

    Yes. Kournikova is better photo than Sharapova

    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.

    Since she hasn't lived or trained here much, her pride is not worth a penny, or even the most flabby boob.

    Of course, the Soviet period wasn't their "best" moment,
    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.
