I've never happened to see her mother supporting her on TV? There's always Yuri...
I'd like to know how her mom looks like.
I hope Maria's mom has nothing to be ashamed of and she simply doesn't like to travel.

Any pics?

People have genetically determined maximum heights but, only if you get optimal nutrition in your childhood, do you reach that. So, Maria's parents probably didn't get good food as children - if they had, at least one of them would probably be Maria's height.

Are Maria's parents still a couple?

it is only until you see maria against average women that you realise what a big girl she is. It also goes for most players.

A question I've been wanting to be answered ever since I started following Maria's career.

not really.

This generation, at least in Europe, is by far the tallest generation ever. There are so many six feet girls about now, its amazing - usually accompanied by shorter parents.

that doesnt quite follow the gene logic does it?

yeah is it in the food they eat? water they drink? why didn't I inherit such a trait? :o I'm not European though but I noticed that even in other places, kids are just generally taller.

Yes, it does. Did you read my explanation?

Just because you have the genes to grow till you're six foot, doesn't mean that you will.

I haven't really noticed a great increase in height, but I have noticed a great increase in fatter kids.

I saw an interesting Tv programme about this.

Aparrently normal genetics doesn't explain it all. It seems there is some kind of gene-memory or feedback. In other words if your parents and grandparents had decent nutrition, somehow that affects how tall you are. So its not just your genes, or how well you were fed.

It same as in USA with the puberty rate getting lower and lower for girls and boys. It all has to do with the faty diets now. I read somewhere that in 1850's sweden, girls didnt start puberty until 17 years!!! Now in america, boys and girls start roughly 10-11 years.

Boys are bigger and stronger than have every been in previous generations as well. And alot of girls are very fat here in the USA as well, take my word for it. :devil:

I can definately see Maria being taller than both parent cuz of nutrition.

Yes, there's that too, but that's a relatively minor component. The vast majority of it is explained by better childhood nutrition.

The puberty thing is also to do with hormones in food. It's frightening - I didn't hit puberty till I was 16 (I'm 26 now) but the young girls I know average out at about 12.

From what I've seen there are just as many, or more, male fatties than the female variety. I'm constantly amazed at how many big ole bellies I see on 10 - college aged boys. :help:

Masha's mom is a really really nice lady. I have a chance to have a 5 min chat with her and she came accross as extremely friendly and down to earth. She is also very beautiful IMO and very tiny. I'd say 5'3 or so.

Her mom's height is at least 165 cm. But I guess she's slightly taller than Henin and similar to Hingis.

As a woman, Sharapova grew far taller than both her parents.... scary.

Anyone in her family could be tall, like Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles etc. It isn't always determined by the parents...

How old is Maria's mum? I remember Anna Kournikova's mother to be very young in contrast to her father, and Yuri is no spring chicken. The cultural thing, especially in the poorer parts of the country.
