When others post pictures of players holding the Olympic torch (albeit a great achievement) they get shot down saying it doesn't count (more or less)
Serena The Painter In Paris

and the other non-tennis related threads in GM alone. Ki

I don't hate Sharapova (notice the mandatory lie to balans it out) but it is obvious she's only there to promote herself and her new line of hair products or whatever kind of money making scheme she came up with... She should be an ambassador for Stacey Allaster.

Sochi is Sharapova's childhood home and it's greatest sporting success. It makes perfect sense she should make an appearance at the Olympic game hosted by Sochi. I doubt she's only there to advertise.

None of what she does here will prompt any one to watch tennis, but it will go a long way to add to her negotiating power with her sponsors.


Having said that, there is no question that it is a great honnor for her.

This goes to all the participating athletes in the Winter Olympics. Maria was the flag bearer at the Olympics and now carried the flame in your games.

Re: Tennis players carrying the Olympic torch during Opening Ceremony?

It was odd to see her so chummy with Mary Carillo. Really great piece actually.

Carillo shines in this type of journalism (especially at the olympics). She has a great personality and sense of humor.

In FLAG BEARER, the letter L is of the upmost importance, mistype and you write FAG BEARER, and you can be expelled from Russia
