I have been out of the loop with sports for a while but I came across Maria's carrying the torch video today online and I was thrilled to see her doing this for Russia. I have been a fan of Maria's since 2000 when she was a skinng little girl and now she has grown into this spectacular and beautiful woman. That is undeniable.
As far as Maria challening Russian president Putin on gay rights it should not be expected from her. She has never been controversial. Maria is in Sochi to support Sochi and Russian athletes and that is so good of her. She is not a politican. We all know she supports gay rights and gay marriage. Obama made the calculated choice to support gay marriage when he was running for re election and it looked like Romney might out raise him money wise. Once Obama publicly supported gay rights and gay marriage in summer 2012 he got alot more money and ended up with approximately 1 billion dollars to Romney's approximately 500 million dollars. That is a huge difference and it paid off for Obama. But it was a calculated political move without a doubt. These types of actions should not be expected from Maria Sharapova. That is just not fair. Masha is having a great career and a great life and she supports gay rights and gay marriage. She just doesn't do it vocally. That is her choice.
I've seen old posts of yours here in the old threads and read your old article about how you met her in I think it was 2002 so I know you were a fan from her junior days. Nice to see you posting here after all the years.

Ok, it's pretty difficult to stay another week without tennis (I mean WTA, I think ATP is a bit boring nowadays) So, listen, we could start some low profile gossip around the last twitter post from Maria, a photo with a big flower on the sand and she said...
Will you be my Valentine? #HappyValentinesDay #loveisintheair pic.twitter.com/bEzygcAbKf
That maybe means she is searching for a new boyfriend?
