Better start than Brie though...

Sharapova has Belorussian (area) family background



I can imagine, you all know it, but an interesting question (I think), without Chernobyl disaster we would have that Sharapova we have nowadays....

Winter Is Coming

"Fine words." Tyrion was unimpressed. "Words are wind. Who is this bloody savior?"
"A dragon." The cheesemonger saw the look on his face at that, and laughed. "A dragon with three heads."

That's got me wondering why Maria is pronounced Muh-ri-a and Daria is not pronounced Duh-ri-a?

Tought loss for Daria, but great to see her playing professional matches! I can't belive she's 15 though, it feels like I've known of her for years.
