Tennis Anyone?

Collecting stamps doesn’t make you a ‘Dork’ Maria!
“It is something that was introduced to me when I was very young,” the 22-year-old said.“I have been very lucky over the years to travel to some amazing countries and I always try to collect stamps from every place I go.

“I am hoping one day that I will be able to hand my collection over to my kids.”

Usually influential for her racket skills and ‘marketers dream’ looks over her off-court hobbies, Sharapova’s admission has contributed to a more fashionable image for the
most traditional of pastimes.

Stamp sales have increased by 30 percent in the last month according to ebay, while the Royal Philatelic society has noticed a significant rise in its membership.

Sharapova first admitted to the unlikely hobby in 2006, though at the time, she appeared less than reluctant to divulge the information, muttering;
“Everyone’s calling me a dork now.”

WTA adds Malaysia to 2010 events.

The Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia (LTAM) in collaboration with promoters Carbon Media Management and the Youth and Sports Ministry will host the Malaysian Tennis Classic 2010 at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort from Feb 22-28.
