Maria Sharapova who has stole the tennis spotlight over the years with her incredible tennis talent, her stunning good looks and her IMG driven massive business machine has always had father Yuri by her side.  Although Yuri was challenged by the banana coaching incident or the Justin Henin decapitation indident, he has spent nearly all his time in the last couple decades faithfully by his daughters side.  Of course there was Nick Bollettieri, Robert Landsdorp, Michael Joyce and Max Eisenbud along for the ride.  But Yuri was always there.

Well the time came about 8 months ago to let the daughter grow up and become a young Women.  And what did Yuri start to do to pass the time?  You guessed – he started skiing all the time.  Reports from numerous European resorts this winter said that the elder Sharapova was there.  So he timed letting his daughter go on her own with the best ski seaon on record.  Lets hope this winter, maybe Yuri can get Maria on the skis!
