The first one looks fun...

She looks so pretty...

...well, the second one is slightly scary, but its our Masha :p

Yes, but she looks very American, with a staged expression. It could be humourous. Japanese are generally theatrical or impassive.
Also, I'm not sure what thecolour red signifies in Japan. I'm sure that in China it still means "PROSTITUTE" on a woman. White is a very safe colour for tennis, and it suits her buy I can also understand why women want to move away from it.

Both Japanese and Chinese would love to see a women from their country win at tennis, especially when tennis is a modern version of the gladitorial contest and women have such a strong tradition in sword play in both countries.

Sorry, but the colour red in China and Japan signifies "Good Fortune",
"Success", and "prosperity"!

Whoever told you that was just being polite.
I repeat, I'm not certain about Japan, but China used to be very different.

lol yea the 2nd one is a scary pic!

the cat Aug 15th, 2004 04:46 PM

Excellent covers of Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko. :D ;) The first cover is of Maria Kirielnko and not Maria Sharapova. I am 99% sure of this. Little Masha wore that red Nike outfit alot. I can't remember Big Masha wearing it. That's more Masha K's profile than it is Masha S's profile. And at the bottom of the racquet handle I can see the beginning's of the Yonex symbol and Little Masha plays with a Yonex racquet while Big Masha plyas with a Prince racquet.

lemon and Frank, why is the second cover scary? The Siberian Tigress Maria Sharapova is just showing that she is ready to maul her prey! :eek: :mad: :bounce: And I like that. ;)

Yep, now you mention it, that is Kirilenko. I never even noticed at first. The late nights are taking their toll on me! :smash: ;)
