She still could have made the bulgarian olympic team after her ban. Or was it more the huge press beating that seh got?

So they obviously just want to buy all they can. There was an article in National Geographic saying that it was the new dubai, here are some of the pictures and the article:

Sessil is right now representative of Kazakhstan. And she is proud of it. She always wanted to represent Kazakhstan but she was born in Bulgaria.

from what i heard they give players $10,000 to travel a year, which is probably $10,000 more than she got from bulgarian tennis

Only 10 grand, I thought they would pay for them to stay in the hilton at every tournament they played. There is only 1 player born in kazakhstan who is decent and thats diyas and she was higher ranked 2 years ago then now

At least they diversify the nationality of their female imports. Kazakh Davis Cup team is practically Russia Team B.

Not really. They are all russian except for Karatantcheva. Pervak has intentions to move back to russia after the olympics. The WTA should make a rule that you have to play for a country for a minimum amount of time before you can change countries again or player like Pervak will go and represent Zimbabwe for the olympics, before returning to russia. Then if she fails to qualify for the olympics again, she will go back to zimbabwe because they had a more "supporting" federation

I meant that the women dont diversify either. I know about the men. Its a complete disgrace. I am happy the Pervaks losing form since she became kazakhstani. What's happenned to nationalism and loyalty

:lol: that is so funny it could be in a comedy sketch!

I thought it might be because it's easier to score in Kaakhstan.

Does Kazakhstan have a favorite country to recruit from?
What is currently part of their foreign legion?

Wow, Pervak is planning on swapping straight back after the Games? I don't particularly like that if I'm being honest..

I don't neccesarily think the Olympic rule of only allowing four players per federation is particularly fair, but at the end of the day, that's the rule that's been set. Even though Pervak probably would have gained entry if it were simply entry on ranking alone, that doesn't really make it fair for her to exploit the system and take the place of someone else who qualified through the criterea set by the Olympics.

I've no problems with players changing their nationality if it gives significant benefit to their career, but what Pervak is doing isn't cool. She has every right to change to KAZ, but she shouldn't be able to just switch back when the Olympics end.

The Olympics always has these rules in every sport so certain countries can't dominate the events, it gives a nice spread of competitors from around the world.

As for Sesil, KAZ should be honored to have such an inspiration playing for them :worship:

And this is one of the reasons why the Olympics are so discredited. Do people actually fall for stunts like this?!

They should say that a player has to have lived in a country for at least 2 years before they can change country. That way, shvedova, pervak, karatantcheva and voskoboeva would all have been caught out. Do any of them even live in kazakhstan now?

I can, as the one she had "shopping her around" in 2007: the countries she wanted wouldn't take her, or pay anything meaningful even if they would. She wanted to go somewhere warm, but the best offer was 15K a year from one such country.

I've heard that KAZ pays her 5K a month (I think year round) and it was a 5 year deal thru 2012, which they don't have to renew. I've also read that its ova if she doesn't finish (a year?) in the Top 100. Maybe she'll be a hooker by this time next year. :shrug:

Apparently Shvedova, Karatantcheva and Voskoboeva live in Astana.
