Maria Sharapova

2004 Wimbledon tennis champion Maria Sharapova has "revealed an unlikely passion for stamp collecting which allows her to relax away from the court," according to an article in the Malaysia Star.

Sharapova is quoted as saying, “I’ve collected stamps since I was nine or 10 years old, and I’ve so many, millions. I’ve stamps passed down from my mom’s grandmother. They’re that old they’re almost rusty!”

Gibbons Stamp Monthly also has a piece on the Russian tennis star/stamp collector in next month's issue. To read it, click here.
