You may wonder why Russian women's tennis is so popular and Russian women's shotputting is not, but we don't. Maria's career-best singles ranking is No. 18, and, unlike a certain countrywoman whose name rhymes with "Pornakova", she's actually won a couple tournaments in her life. Oh, and she's pals with Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic. Yes, we have the occasional Canadian doubles fantasies, and we're not ashamed to admit it.
