Maria Sharapova: One of the Best Tennis Players

Born as a Russian in 1987, Sharapova started playing Tennis at a very young age and became a professional by the time she reached 14. Her biggest breakthrough came when she won the Wimbledon 2004 title against Serena Williams and then went on to win US Open and Australian Open too. However, in year 2012, she also won the French open which made her the 10th woman to complete Grand Slam in her career.

When she started playing at the age of 14, she won her first title at the WTA in 2003 AIG Japan Open and also managed to reach the fourth round on her very first attempt. However, her claim to fame was in the year 2004 when she became the first Russian to be a Women’s Wimbledon Champion after winning the singles title. By the close of 2004, she also added WTA championship title to her repository of achievements.

She is not just a popular celebrity on court but also off court because of her beauty appeal. She has been able to bag many commercial endorsements like Nike and Tiffany & Co. which makes here extremely famous outside of the court too.

Her major setback came in the year 2007 when she suffered from a shoulder injury which became the main reason for subsequent game losses. Due to her shoulder injury, she was unable to give her best performance in matches for the most part of 2008 as well. However, in 2009 she underwent a surgery followed by a year of rehabilitation that allowed her to make a comeback in 2011 by closing at number 4 spot by the end of the year.
