    Being a girl you should talk about how women have achieved equality in pay and respect to the men starting with the efforts of Billie Jean King in the 70's with the Virginia Slims tour. Women used to get no respect and very little pay and now look where they are. She was not only a pioneer of tennis but of women's rights in general. Do some research on Billie Jean King and how she fought for women tennis players all over the world. Don't forget to talk about her "Battle of the Sexes" with Bobby Riggs which was the most watched tennis match in history. Female athletes owe so much to Billie Jean King and players like Sharapova, Ivanovic, and Jankovic are some of the highest paid in the world because of her.

    The most famous Kazahkstani is probably Nik Antropov, leading scorer for the New York Rangers. He's done superbly since being traded there from the Leafs. (He's actually ethnic Russian, but from Kazakstan.)
