Many questions. When a Sharapov or a Kournikov arrive in the States on a jet plane, do they seek political refuge? Do the parents have work or coaching visas? Do the kids get automatic student visas to enroll at Bollietteiri? Are Haas, Kournikova, Sharapova, Philippoussis, Grosjean and others in Florida, U.S. citizens? I wonder on what level a Sharapova is considered "Russian", assuming thay she rarely if ever in the past 9+ years ventures to that nation. Same for Anna. Navratilova and Seles became U.S. citizens, Martina actually escaping from a harsh Communist Czech state. I guess Maria Vento's husband is an American, but can the rest just stay around until the tennis career ceases? I read that immigration officers in DHS actively search for Latin Americans here who work in restaurants or farms or K-Marts to deport them. To my knowledge if the immigrant checks in at the border they are sent home or allowed maybe a limtied work visa. Is there a quota on foreign tennis stars other than college students that the govt allows? The reason I ask is that at every tournament we learn how the foreign players actually lives in Florida, and I assume, pay taxes there. I wonder if the big stars have offshore tax havens to move their earnings while they train and live in Florida? Many use Monte Carlo to avoid high taxes.
