Predicted Jimmie response: This is another proof of you people only being interested in her looks and money and not tennis. 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.
Actually, she is doing more for herself and Russia, not tennis.
In 2012, she was doing more for tennis and Russia, because she was seen playing tennis for Russia.
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.
Yes - Present me some evidence or stats which shows the average of warnings Masha has has received per match during her 10 year career - Then you can write something about it - Right now you're only writing bullshit with no facts
