1st i'm an american but honestly did noone else read this question on Jon Weirtheim's mailbag???
And i quote:

Long-lost siblings: Marat Safin and Dinara Safina look like they could be brother and sister.
-- Seth Tucker, Oceanside, N.Y.

You're right. This is eerie. Not as eerie as Bob and Mike Bryan, though. You'd think those were, like, twins.


No i mean seriously!!!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
P.S. loved Jon's reply!!!! :worship:

Well! You have to understand that the author isn't familiar with the Russian culture.By Russian last names(most of them) you can tell gender.In most cases it has a letter "a", like Maria Sharapova and her father Uri Sharapov. :)

But surely he could tell the difference (an "a") between Safin and Safina. :confused:

Apparently only in America do people have a sense of humor. It's obviously a joke, folks.

A heck of alot of people wouldnt be familiar with the Russian practice of adding the 'a' to the end of a daughters surname

but yes, you'd have to be fairly stupid not to get it if you actually follow tennis and had seen both players

This is a mind-blowing that there are idiots in the USA, well that is a surprise and I imagine there could be the possibility of idiots existing in other nations as well.

If you had a foreign language in school, you'd see that many languages have feminine and masculine nouns, adjectives, etc. I guess I, being American-with a sense of humor no less, understood that going in. Maybe this guy didn't? I don't know.

Irrelevant. Safin is neither a noun nor an adjective.

A few months ago after a series of dubious entries, someone sent in the Bryan twins as a joke & this entry is just a take-off of that (thus Wertheim's repeat of his original comment regarding the Bryans submission as scary).

Chill it was not a Yank bashing thread!!!!!! it was a idiot bashing thread! Stop being soooooooooooooo sensitive!! Its a sign of great maturity to be able to see humour in yourself!!! Eeesh!

A question for Mr. Wertheim:

Please help me and my brother settle our bet about Oracene Price being the mother of twins Venus and Serena. He says she is their mother, but I believe otherwise because her last name is different from the sisters'. :confused:
