It's A Girl: Mirnyis Welcome Second Daughter


By Tennis Week
03/09/2007

The Beast has embraced another beauty. Max Mirnyi, nicknamed "The Beast", and wife Ksusha welcomed their second daughter to the world. Petra Mirnyi was born at 11:39 p.m. on Thursday in Florida weighing in at about seven pounds.

Both mother and baby are healthy and happy. The baby's birthday carries special significance in the family's native Belarus: March 8 is "Women's Day" in the country.

The baby's name honors Mirnyi's extended family: doubles partner Jonas Bjorkman and his wife, Petra. The Bjorkmans named their son "Max" in honor of Mirnyi. Max Bjorkman celebrated his fourth birthday in January. The Mirnyis named their daughter "Petra" after Petra Bjorkman.

The couple's first child, daughter Melashka "Melanie", was born on Dec. 16, 2004 and both daughters are destined to follow in their father's footsteps in at least one way: "Max" is the middle name for both Mirnyi daughters.

Mirnyi, ranked No. 1 in doubles, is still entered into the Indian Wells doubles draw with Bjorkman. The Beast and father Nikolai are planning to fly to California later today in an effort to play the Pacific Life Open. Bjorkman and Mirnyi reached the Australian Open doubles final in January, bowing to the Bryan brothers, 7-5, 7-5.

Great news!

Is Max short for something in either the Mirnyi or Bjorkman case, does anyone know? Maximillian? Maxwell?

Thank you Saumon.
Maksim, I think is perhaps eastern European for Maximillian.
