Safin: Sharapova is American.

"Myskina, Dementieva, they spend much more time there, so the people get to know them so at least they can give an opinion about them," Safin said last week. "But about Sharapova, nobody sees. She lives in the States, as (far as) I'm concerned."

I like Safin, he's a loose cannon and isn't afraid to speak his mind. And he's right about Sharapova, only thing Russian about her is her name. I just don't understand why she has that accent after living in the states since she was 7. I have a friend who was born in Russia, moved to the states when he was 8 and speaks PERFECT English. No accent at all. Maybe she's just a dumb blonde

Really, don't even look at me...

Also, she shouts 'come on!!' during her matches in English... so.

I don't actually think Safin is saying Sharapova's american, he says she spends all her time there and lives there so the people don't see her because she's not there... that's not necessarily the same thing.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

"she lives in the United States" = Sharapova is American?

Funny, he never made those statements about Kournikova nor did he point out that he, himself, hasn't lived in Russia since his own childhood.

I like Marat, but sometimes he doesn't think before he talks.

Well, isnīt that mysterious?

Ahhh...people, stop it, we all know that evil Yuri dragged his little daughter to the US, I donīt think she was asked...and besides this is really getting tired and stupid. Of course she has two cultures combined in her, I guess a lot of other immigrants can relate to this, but in the end she still has a russian passport, so shut it...coming from a Myskina fan AND a daughter of immigrants

@all the journalists who canīt stop asking EVERY single russian
player about Masha...itīs getting pretty damn annoying

Peace out...group hug...ok, letīs not overreact

He also has a house in Moscow.
I agree with Myskina she don't want Sharapova in the Fed Cup team because she is not Russian. She barely speaks the language. Dementieva and Myskina are real Russians who loves there country. Sharapova even shouts "come on" during her matches. What a Russian...pfff.
Wise words of Marat

Elena Dementieva

also GOOD luck to: Alona Bondarenko, Victoria Azarenka, Daniela Hantuchova, Maria Kirilenko, Anna Chakvetadze
