Maria Sharapova earns $1000 in just 6 seconds

Compared to an average high school teacher who takes 43 hours to earn that amount of money, and Howard Stern, 24 seconds. Kobe Bryant, about 5 minutes.

This was in TIME magazine, which is quite interesting because it was a feature on "USA and its people". Obviously, the people of time consider her American. lol.

Maria certainly rakes it in. No question.

As to her nationality. That is up to both her, and to the sporting union which is setting whatever rules apply to her sport. In the World Baseball Classic, because of the rules set up, Alex Rodriguez could have played for the Dominican Republic. He chose not to, but he could have. And A-Rod was born in the Bronx, NY, has never lived in DR.

If the rules say she can play for Russia, then she can play for Russia. If she considers herself Russian, than that is what she is. It's not up to others to tell her what to think.
