The St. Louis Aces
tennis team serves up athlete-turned-starlet Anna Kournikova
tomorrow for a match against the Springfield (Mo.) Lasers.
Those attending the event at Forest Park should be advised not to address Ms. (soon to Mrs.?) Kournikova in Yiddish and/or Hebrew. That's because the tennis player is not Jewish.
At least, not according to an article yesterday in the Washington Times
. Kournikova was recently in the nation's capital playing for the Aces when a photographer commented "mazel tov" when she caught a glimpse of the tennis player's rumored engagement ring from singer Enrique Iglesias.
When apprised that "mazel tov" means congratulations in Yiddish/Hebrew, Kournikova reportedly pointed to her necklace and snapped back at the photographer: "I'm not Jewish. Can't you see my cross?"
