Maria Yuryevna Sharapova is a former professional tennis player from Russia. She was born on April 19, 1987. Even though she represented Russia in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), she has resided in the United States since 1994 and is a permanent resident.

Sharapova participated on the WTA Tour from 2001 to 2020, during which time she was ranked world No. 1 in singles five times for a total of 21 weeks. She is just ten woman in history to achieve a Grand Slam’s career and the only Russian to do so. She has also earned an Olympic medal, winning a silver in the women’s singles event at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Sharapova has a remarkable degree of longevity in tennis, with numerous analysts and former players hailing her as one of the finest competitors in the sport.

Sharapova initially reached world No. 1 on August 22, 2005, at the age of 18, becoming the first Russian female tennis player to do so, and she held the position for the fifth time for four weeks from June 11 to July 8, 2012. She won five Grand Slam championships in total, including two at the French Open and one each at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open, for 36 victories, including the WTA Finals in her first year of 2004.

She was also a three-time doubles champion. She was also regarded as one of Serena Williams’s fiercest opponents, despite being primarily regarded as the best female tennis player of all time.

Sharapova has been in a variety of modeling projects, including a cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She has been the face of various fashion businesses, most notably Cole Haan, and has been in several ads, including Nike, Prince, and Canon. She has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme since February 2007, focusing on the Chernobyl Recovery and Development Programme.

Time named her one of the “30 Legends of Women’s Tennis: Past, Present, and Future” in June 2011, and Tennis Channel named her one of the “100 Greatest of All Time” in March 2012.

She has been ranked the highest-paid female athlete in the world for 11 years in a row, according to Forbes, and has made US$285 million (including prize money) since turning pro in 2001. In 2018, she established a new mentoring program for female entrepreneurs.

Sharapova started in March 2016 that she had failed a drug test during the 2016 Australian Open. She had tested positive for meldonium, a chemical that the World Anti-Doping Agency has prohibited (as of January 1, 2016). (WADA). The International Tennis Federation banned her from tennis for two years on June 8, 2016. (ITF).

The suspension was reduced to 15 months on October 4, 2016, beginning on the date of the failed test, after the Court of Arbitration for Sports determined that she had committed “no significant fault.” It had taken the substance “based on a doctor’s recommendation)with a good faith belief that it was appropriate and compliant with the relevant rules.” On April 26, 2017, she made her WTA Tour comeback at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.
