Sveta is my absolute favorite russian, and that was even before I found out she is an honorary "sister". Turns out she's a big fan of 50 cent and the whole G-unit crew. Hell I can't even get with 50, but the kids seem to like his stuff, including Sveta. A few years ago she told Tennis Magazine that she wears her hair in corn rows as a homage to her favorite rappers. I have only briefly seen her hair in braids now, but from what little I've seen, it looks rather cool to me. Must be a black thing. I've never had the pleasure of meeting her, but the people I know who have say she's a sweetheart, and you gotta love anybody that has as much fun with our pop culture as she does.
Just as a humorous aside, imagine that Venus loves Green Day, but Sveta is into 50 Cent...blow those stereotypes up young ladies. It a big beautiful multicultural world.

She's undoubtedly my favourite Russian not only because she's such good friends with Arantxa ;). She comes across as a down to earth and approachable person.
