Sharapova's Belarussian

Her family originally comes from Belarus. Just as Hingis is Czech.

it would be cooler if Siberia was a country. Then we could have a grand slam played on ice

No big difference, most of Belarussians prefers Russian language, Russian culture and watches Russian TV. The only reason why they are not part of the Russia is that they dont want to become a province

Butchering English since 1995

Yeah, you're right. However, she's half Slovak, and half Moravian(indigenous Czech) in her actual ethnicity.
