i agree that for us it is only by mere speculation.. since the decision only will come from MASHA... this issue has been circulating for years now, still Maria manages to be Russian and not an American, well like any other tennis enthusiast playing in a hot weather in Miami rather than in a cold place like Russia or somewhere in Siberia is more condusive, like what others say she is worth millions and i think she intends to be worth millions or more than that for a long time... she maybe influenced by how americans speak, act or dress but the real Russian in her is still very visible especially inside the court... whatever nationality she choses it does not change the fact that she is one hell of a tennis player... she will always remain the siberian siren for all her fans.. thanks for posting this topic, it is very interesting... mwah

would have to be a legal citizen? she stills play under the banner of
russia, but she is legally an american? or maybe she has dual
citizenship?

(don't get mad this is just what I think) I just find it weird that she's been living in America for about 13 years and has no US citizenship. Don't forget she has a home in Florida and Los Angeles. I think slowly but surely she'll be citizen in America.

I've avoided this discussion because I don't really want to get in a shouting match with some of my countrymen. So let me advise any who have this idea of making over Masha to suit yourselves, you are welcome to "the last word", whatever you think that counts for.


But here is what I think: Haven't you noticed how this whole proposition parrots the sports establishment commentators -- from Jon Wertheim to Bryant Gumbel to the Three Witches of ESPN -- who have tried now for years to twist the arms of Masha and her family to deny their Motherland?


It's the same deal as how we go about stealing figure skaters from Canada and then pretending we somehow produced them. There's also a nasty subtext where some of us seem to take a sick pride in the illusion that we can buy anybody. The insinuation that Masha is "really" an American by osmosis or something is hardly a new fixture of the agenda. In short, no. She is not.


We live in a globalized order. Many people own property, work and live in other countries with no assumption that their national identity or loyalty is at stake. I suspect many of my compatriots have no idea how foul this attitude strikes much of Maria's global fandom who comprise this forum--our Russian friends in particular.


Let it go. Let Masha be Masha and Russia be Russia. For once, let us try and get our Yankee minds around this: It's not all about us.

Hey Paul, you are so right!! Couldn't have put it better myself...


Plus, immigrants tend to love their countries way more than the people who actually live there...


All of these stuff said about Masha being an American citizen is just wishfull thinking...


Paul is right [H]

It is, in fact, a very minor detail, Joe. That's business, and that's all it is. The only obligations are bottom line financial ones off of which her corporate backers are making a whole lotta boodle. That's where it begins and ends.

So what?  Should she kneel for the almighty "stars&stripes" and cry how gratefull she is? Don't forget the States are what they are thanks 2 immigrants, 'cos there's no such thing like a "real fullblooded american". So stop blowing your horn little Joe. For Paul, excellent the way u said that and i can agree with most of it.
