Kirilenko is older than Sharapova, so why is she called the Little one instead? Is it because of their stature, or due to their popularity and fame? :confused:

Maria S is bigger in size, and she has had the bigger results.

I suppose it comes from when they were playing doubles together.

That goes back to when Sharapova was still the "girl who made Wimby 4th Round that young", so success is not a factor on that.

Zero, I came up with these apropos nicknames for Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko becasue Big Masha is 6'2" tall while Little Masha is 5'8" tall. It makes sense to me. ;)

I tried to get people to call them collectively, "the Mashas" or even "the Masha sisters" but it didn't take off. Rat bastards on this board! Plus, Little Masha has underperformed, which hasn't helped.

I wish they would play doubles at the majors, though, and I still maintain they both should do a clothing ad set in Central Park where they flirt with boys and smell flowers with Tina Turner's "Typical Male" playing in the background. That would be one kick-ass commercial.

That's a good marketing strategy Helen. But there's a problem. They represent different sportswear companies. ;) Big Masha is with Nike and Little Masha is with Adidas.

I know! :fiery: Maybe it can be something else. If all else fails, throw a couple of beers in their hands and it can be a beer ad. :angel:
