Awesome Tall Girls Part II: Maria Sharapova

TBU SharapovaWith Wimbledon currently going on, I thought this would be the perfect time to write part II of my ‘Awesome Tall Girls’ series; Maria Sharapova.
The first time I heard of Maria Sharapova was 10 years ago when I was backpacking in New Zealand. A few people said I resembled Maria Sharapova. At that point, I had never heard of her as I do not have a particular interest in tennis, but now I think it’s quite an honor to remind people of this gorgeous lady. I do think it is more the height thing, than the actual looks, but hey, who am I to argue?Β 

After this first comparison, a few other people independently said I look like Maria Sharapova (secretly I still go ‘YAY!’ every time I hear that), so my curiosity was piqued and I started to follow her a bit more. We share the exact same height (1.88m), and we have the sameΒ abs type of hair; very sleek, albeit she is a bit blonder. (If only I had her abs… πŸ˜‰ ). She is currently being trained by a Dutch guy, so maybe she is even learning a bit of Dutch. πŸ™‚

Despite quite a few injuries, she has a uniquely long career in tennis; looks like this girl has perseverance. As a side job, she ambassador for the UN, which I think is pretty awesome. If that is not enough, she’s worked together with brands like Land Rover, Tag Heuer, Canon, Tiffany and even designed her own tennis apparel line in collaboration with Nike and Cole Haan as she thought the existing clothing did not fit her tall frame. Good on her, as all us tall girls will benefit from that!! Now she also designs shoes and handbags in collaboration with Cole Haan.

This is one sporty, fashionable, creative, inspiring girl who I am gladly being compared to.Β I am off to the gym in an effort to get those abs trained!! Come to think of it: guess I actually should attend Wimbledon next year to see her play, now I have the dress to wear for the event! πŸ™‚

    What a gorgeous person to look like! She sure does have her mitts in a lot of activities. We watched some of this year’s Wimbledon and were talking last night about trying to get tickets next year as well. It seems like it would be such an exciting event to attend. And it’s funny you mention having a dress to wear…that’s exactly what I said to my husband “Oh goody – that means I’ll get to buy a pretty new dress”. πŸ™‚

      Well, I’m sure it’s more the height than that we look like twins, but I’ll see it as a compliment anyway! there are worse people to be compared to! πŸ™‚ And yes, it would be great to attend an event like that; I’m not that into tennis, but I love playing dress up for any reason really… πŸ˜‰
