The interview/article is called "Russian Rocket". The interview covers a variety of topics, including Maria becoming an American citizen, her weight and her schedule.
Thanks to Bubble for finding this interview, and posting it in "Russian Roulette"! But I want to give the interview greater exposure. So I've started a thread about here, where alot more people will read it.
Maria seems very poised for a 15 year old phenom!
Some of you might remember a thread I had in General Messages a couple of weeks ago about the USTA recruiting Maria to become an American citizen and play tennis for America. It looks that that will happen at some point in the future. Aferall, her life and future are in America. But I would prefer Maria stay a Russian citizen, and become the greatest female Russian tennis player of all time. She certainly has a better chance to do that, than she does in becoming the next Venus or Serena Williams, Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati, Chris Evert, Tracy Austin or Billie Jean King.
Speaking of Billie Jean King, once she gets a hold of Maria and her talent, she will ask Maria to play for America. And how can you say no or nyet to Billie Jean King and her unparalled enthusiam?
