She was born in Russia...and that would be the feminin form of her surname...No? :confused:

I asked this same question before, I would assume that since they moved to France they dropped that tradition.

So if Sharapova becomes American (far fetched I know) her name would revert to Sharapov?

I know several women with Czech and Russian married or surnames and they do not use the traditional names here in the States.

There is no need to.

When she turned French, she was probably asked about her father's name.

she moved to France when she was a baby when her dad took a job as a hockey coach
and cos of passport "complications" she had to have the same surname as her dad (maybe they would have thought the baby wasn't their's if it had a diff name)
Her birth certificate still has her as Golovina.
Her mother most likely also had to drop the A.
