Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova (born 19 April 1987), is a professional tennis player. She was born in Russia, but she is a resident of the US since 1994. Sharapova started competing on WTA in 2001. Since then, she was ranked as the best female tennis player five times. The first time when she became No. 1, was on August 22, 2005. At that time she was 18 years old! Last ranking was in 2012. As the world No. 1, she was 21 weeks, if we combine all five times together. She is a third ranked tennis player, behind Williams’s sisters. Sharapova won 34 singles titles, and 5 Grand Slam titles. One at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and two at the French Open.

From 2003-2015 she has won at least one singles title, every year! Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf, are the only tennis players with a bigger success! Winning the French Open in 2012, she became the 6th women to complete a career Grand Slam!

Maria Sharapova has an incredible big desire for winning, which is very good. Many experts say that this desire is her biggest motivation. Beside tennis, she is active as a model. Maybe you saw her in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She also appeared in many TV commercials for popular brands such as: Prince, Canon and Nike. If that isn’t enough, she is the face of many fashion houses, but the most important is Cole Haan! Since 2007 she is United Nations Development Program Goodwill Ambassador, trying to improve Chernobyl Recovery and Development Program. A few years ago, she was named as one of the greatest women of all time!
