Russia's Maria Sharapova would be very happy if Sochi, the city where her love for tennis began, gets chosen to host 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Maria expressed how delighted she would be if this city, located on the Black Sea coast, becomes the host of such a big event. It would, without a doubt, bring an unprecedented social, sporting and environmental legacy for her birth country and improve lives of millions of Russians.
"The changes Sochi 2014 will bring to this region, including state-of-the-art, custom-built winter training facilities, will mean that youngsters will not have to travel to the other side of the world to realize their potential," the 20 year-old Wimbledon and U.S. Open winner said.
"I urge all sports enthusiasts to support Sochi 2014 and help us bring incredible legacy to millions of people in Russia and inspiration to countless others around the globe," Maria added.
On 4th July we will know whether Sochi will be the host.
