She does have a feature or two but not sure if she has Asian in her or not.

I'm not sure about that Asian thing, but to me it looks she must have little bit reptilian blood in her.

I agree with that, and she looks much better in person as well.

This explains a lot. I find many of the Russian (Eastern European) women exotic; blue or green eyes with the oriental eye structure - like Vera Zonevera or Myskina - striking! Question - is Siberia not a part of the Soviet Union? Or was that before the "wall"?

I guess maybe you are confusing Siberia with Serbia? Siberia is always part of Russia (or the former Soviet Union). Serbia is in the Balkans in southeast Europe. It was part of the former Yugoslavia and now part of Serbia-Montenegro after Croatia and Slovenia split from Yugo.

BTW, I think Myskina is one of the sexiest women on the WTA tour.

Yep, that was my problem. Thank you for setting me straight. Can we thank Genghis Kahn for this wonderful mix?

Actually, I think Myskina has the classic Syberian look. Yes, she's Russian but she must have heritage from the part near Mongolia. That explains a lot why she's about the only black-haired Russian on tour: all the others come from the cities like Moscow, and must have their heritage from there.

As for Jankovic, I don't think she looks Asian that much.. when I go watching Serbian people on the TV many of them look a lot like that. Weirdly enough, Croatians look completely different, even though they were part of Yugoslavia for a long while.

faste, I think the mix comes from what came right after Genghis Khan, not Khan himself When his lands at Syberia were dismantled, it was made part of Russia and that allowed the mixes (I think)

Caroline Wozniacki

~~ just too lovely ~~

I figured Khan got around, but not that much!
