Re: When did you start watching Maria's matches?
Australia Open 2004 , i was watching her match vs maybe Myskina , and our constant Eurosport commentator Boris Borovsky told during the match something like " look at this girl, she is probably a next Kournikova with a great future and will be very popular very soon"
it was about a halfyear before Wimbledon 2004 )))
