Tennis - Belarusian tennis player Max Mirnyi will be honoured with a stamp that has been released by Belarus Post today. Mirnyi has won six grand slam doubles titles in his career, and also won the Olympics mixed doubles gold medal last year with Victoria Azarenka.
Mirnyi commented, "We had individual congratulations notes from high-ranked politicians. But this was pretty unique because I closely watched a few years back when Federer had his stamps issued in Switzerland and Murray recently had his after Wimbledon.
It was cool to see that recognition from the government and to have no idea or expectation that this would come my way.” “It’s pretty unique. I normally do all the mailing and paying the bills myself. I like picking the stamps and sticking them on the envelope. It’ll be fun to go and pick one up of my own!”
