Arts Memories of Ashe

What did we hear when Sharapova spoke about her return to Arthur Ashe Stadium for the U.S. Open, the very court on which she decimated an Italian nobody:
“There’s no way to get rid of the memories when I walk on the court and feel the vibe,” the second-seeded Russian said, 600 crystals on her red dress sparkling in the Arthur Ashe Stadium lights. “Every corner I turn here, I get goose bumps.”What we heard is Russian nostalgia. “There’s no way to get rid of the memories.” Moy dushka, my darling, this is the beauty of the Russian mind: its phantoms, its hauntedness, its goose bumps, its profound nostalgia.
