Maria Sharapova Covers 'Harper's Bazaar Russia' - Exclusive!

Maria Sharapova graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia‘s August 2012 issue, on newsstands July 18.

The 25-year-old tennis player will be heading to the London Olympics later this month to represent Russia and received an even greater honor when she was asked to carry the country’s flag.

“When I received the call to carry Russia’s flag during the Opening Ceremony, I almost didn’t believe it,” Maria exclusively told JustJared.com. “It was only later that I learned that I was to be the first female athlete in Russia’s history to do so. It’s a very proud moment to be chosen to represent a country that has shown me such support and loyalty throughout my career.”

cover in the old style… love it

# 2

The cover looks so old school – brooke, claudia, naomi days… Love it!!!

# 3

One of the most overrated people in history. She is pretty but not out of this world and her attitude stinks!

# 6

never understood why she’s considered to be the hottest female athlete ever, pretty but not stunning.

# 7

One of the best female tennis players of our time!!And such a wonderful woman

# 8

@kathryn: Compare her to the Villiams sisters and you’ll get the answer.
She IS amazing.

She’s not pretty – AT ALL! Yikes! She looks about 30 years older than she really is.

@Lilly: but i believe there are a couple of more female tennis players on tour… not just 3. Look up ana ivanovic or demetieva they’re so much prettier in my opinion

@kathryn: Yeah, there are some really beautiful tennis players – but Ana Ivanovic performed well only in one season, and Maria is a really talented girl…

@Lilly:

This woman and the Williams destroyed Women’s Tennis for me. The freakin’ grunting, screaming, even yelling sometimes during matches just ruined woman’s tennis for me. There should be a law in tennis about making so much freakin’ noise.

she is the reason that sometimes I just hate tennis,she’s so self-satisfied and all,I hate such ppl..you know..anyway I think that the beauty is not just the appearance of someone but also her attitude to the whole world and her humblness,,she can never be beautiful to me,that’s it

What an amazing cover! She’s stunning. And whoever said that she’s not humble has obviously not heard her interviews. I agree, her grunting on court is annoying, but otherwise she’s very humble. She never takes credit away from opponents, is gracious both in victory and defeat. She’s a very graceful lady and is very talented. Always humble and sweet in interviews.
