Tennis Career Highlights
Maria Sharapova, Russia Born : 1987 in Nyagan, Soviet Union. A tall elegant all court player with powerful serve and groundstrokes. After winning Wimbledon at 17 she has found it difficult to achieve the consistency necessary to be ranked No 1. However with her 3rd Grand Slam victory in Australia has not led to a dominance that many predicted. However 2012 saw a return to full fitness and the French Open title thus completing a career Grand Slam. A second French Open in 2014 was her 5th Major. Her career slumped after her last major win & she was given a 2 year ban fro drug use.
