ALPHA, you think you know Anna well. Well, you probably don't. Maybe Anna really has two faces, but I don't think so. All I've ever read in her interviews says that she values her Russian connection and her image in Russia very much. She is just smarter than you probably think she is. She knows that the behavior of dozen of idiots shouldn't impact her relationship to her country, and that's the way it is. BTW, do you know that in doubles finals in Kremlin Cup , her support group was very strong and at least matched the Dementieva/Lina support group.
Or should I repost the article by Russian captain Shamil Tarpishev published back in July ( and posted on old boards ), named "Anna Kournikova is always ready to help Russian team"? If she'll be selected, I am sure she'll cancel all those meaningless exhibitions ( why didn't she come to South Africa when I was still there after all <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">) and plays for her country.
As to that "betrayer" article you mention, for you it probably sounds as what every Russian thinks, but I know that it is prtty much opposite, and she knows that too. The person that wrote that article, wrote similar article about Kafelnikov just a month before he won Olympics for his country. It is just another Russian sports crapwriter, who can write any shit, plagiarise if necessary, a man with no honour. I know our Russian media all too well, and I don't have an awful lot of respect to them.
