" was like big face of Anna..."

Back before Martina Hingis took courses in English, her delightful broken English was one of my favorite things about her. Last night on television, one of the commentators remarked that Maria Kirilenko was the only major Russian player who has not yet mastered English, and I thought to myself that her interviews might be rich with interesting word construction.

Sure enough, this morning, someone on a tennis board pointed out Kirilenko's interview after her victory over her friend, Anna Chakvetadze. It is filled not only with some charming turns of English phrase, but also some refreshingly candid, artless remarks.
