Re: Why does Sharapova represent Russia when she lives in the United States?
Because Sharapova is the most famous and I think the most hypocritical. Why live in America, benefit from American endorsements, training ect yet represent Russia? Sharapova has the money why doesn't she live in Moscow? She claims to be a proud Russian yet wants American wealth. I think I see why other Russians such as Myskina and Dementieva criticized Sharapova for not being a real Russian. Myskina, Zvonarevia, Safina, and Dementieva still live in Russia and they have property and Russia and I believe Kuznetsova also has property and lives in St. Petersburg. But Sharapova the only thing Russian about her is her last name.
