Why The Russians Dont Like Maria ?

I realized that Russians dont like Maria, i dont know why..maybe because she is never in Russian, or maybe because her Russian is not fluent.. dont know !

Stay away.

Because they think of Maria as an American, which is in reality, what she really is. How much time does she or her Russian father spend in Russia? Very little, I think.

I don't know where you get your information from. Last year MosNews reported that 19 percent of russians voted for Maria Sharapova as their favorite sportsperson. Which made her the most popular sportsperson in the country. The girl in second place, Alina Kabayeva, got 18 percent of the votes.

EDIT: Added link.

because Maria has had the most success, gets the most endorsements, has the nicest house, the most fans and the best looking boyfrend.

The other Russian girls are probably having a bit of the Jan Brady effect...

They don't think of her as russian,because she never stayed in russia and trained there she went to america while the other russians Dementieva,Myskina,Safina trained in russia for most of their lives.She hasn't played fed cup for them yet.Anyways really all the russians don't get along because they are competing against eachother in the top ten on a consistent basis.
