Maria Sharapova: Embodiment of Russian Beauty



Maria Sharapova, a former World’s No.1 Russian professional tennis player, was born on April 19, 1987. Maria was born in the remote Siberian city Nyagan but raised in Sochi, which is hosting the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Later, when Maria turned 7, she and her father Yuri moved to Florida, US so that she could train at Nick Bollettieri’s tennis academy.Maria Sharapova2 Maria Sharapova: Embodiment of Russian Beauty

At the age of 17, Maria won over two-time defending champion Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final in 2004. In 2005, Sharapova managed to reach the No.1 ranking for the very first time and held this title for seven weeks when she reached the French Open quarterfinals and the semi-finals of the other three Slams. The year 2006 also became significant for Maria as she took the U.S. Open trophy by defeating Justine Henin.Maria Sharapova1 Maria Sharapova: Embodiment of Russian Beauty
Though in January of 2007 Sharapova was won over by Serena Williams in the Australian Open final, she still held the No. 1 ranking for a total of 10 weeks during that season.Maria Sharapova Maria Sharapova: Embodiment of Russian Beauty

A year later Maria defeated Ana Ivanovic in the Australian Open final so she recouped her loss of the previous year in the same competition. By winning the Australian Open, Maria earned the third major title in her career. So, during that year Maria held the No. 1 spot for three weeks. Unfortunately, that sports season didn’t last long due to Sharapova’s trauma- an injury to the right shoulder and Maria had arthroscopic surgery in October of 2008. Unfortunately, after the trauma, Maria didn’t have any significant victories; in 2009 during the Grand Slam competition at the 2009 French Open Maria only made the quarterfinals.

In 2008 the Russian athlete with a statuesque body was named the world’s highest-paid female athlete by Forbes. Maria has property in the US and in Israel: a house in Manhattan Beach in California and a penthouse flat in Netanya, Israel.

Sharapova is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since her appointment on February 14, 2007. She donated US$100,000 to UNDP Chornobyl recovery projects.

Maria Sharapova is widely known not only for her sports achievements but also for her advertisement campaigns for worldwide famous brands. She could even be considered the leader among sports celebrities in the advertising market. She is remembered for participating in ads for Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Lady Speed Stick, Nike, Tag Heuer, and others.

Brazilian woman, former model, killed by Russian troops



Brazilian woman, former model

A former model or Brazilian model who joined the Ukrainian army just three weeks ago has died in a Russian bombing in Kharkiv.

Thalita do Valle, 39, had been on humanitarian missions around the world and had previously fought against ISIS in Iraq, according to Brazilian media.

She was killed last week after a missile hit a bunker in Kharkiv, a city in northeastern Ukraine that has been heavily bombed since the start of the war.

The rocket attack also killed Douglas Burigo, 40, a former soldier in the Brazilian army, who had returned to the bunker to retrieve Thalita. She had been the only person left in the bunker after an initial rocket attack.

Thalita worked as a model and actress and studied law. She has volunteered in several war zones and documented her experiences in videos posted on YouTube.

The videos show how she trained to become a sniper when she joined the armed forces in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Thalita’s brother, Theo Rodrigo Viera, said his sister was a hero who saved lives and participated in humanitarian missions. He also said she had been in Ukraine on a rescue mission for just three weeks and in that time had survived a bombing.
