The Russian tennis pro isn’t just known for her skills on the court but for good looks and fashion taste too. The former number 1 female professional tennis player grabbed everybody’s attention just at the age of 18 when she became world’s highest paid tennis player. She made her professional breakthrough in 2004 when she was just seventeen and defeated two time defending champion and Serene Williams during 2004 Wimbledon final and won her first ever Grand Slam. After Martina Hingis and Lottie Dod, she is the third youngest woman to win a Grand Slam title. Apart from being one of the highest paid athletes, she is also the proud winner of three Grand Slam titles. Despite not having quite a good record on court, she remains the top-earning female athlete in the world, according to a report by Forbes magazine. She won her first French Open tennis final against Sara Errani of Italy to reclaim her title of World’s No. 1 in June 2012.

Maria Sharapova was born on April 19, 1987 in Russia. But she shifted her base to the US to join the Nick Bollettieri’s Tennis Academy in Florida. She won her first tournament in Japan in 2003 but real success came when she became the uncrowned queen of tennis after winning Wimbledon in 2004. She then won her second Grand slam- the US Open in 20066 and third- the Australian Open in 2008.

She has had a rather spotty career due to a chronic shoulder condition that has required surgery from time to time. She has been ranked world’s no 1 and has won 30 singles titles, three Grand Slams and three doubles titles. She has also won the Australian Open, the US Open, The Wimbledon, and French Open at least once.
