How Old is Maria Sharapova and What is Her Net Worth?

How Old is Maria Sharapova and What is Her Net Worth?”

On Tuesday, the 32-year-old announced she will be hanging up her racquets and closing the door on an wonderful tennis career. "She's very special", Bollettieri told the AP in an interview previous year, when Sharapova returned to his academy as she worked her way back from her latest shoulder procedure.

And the world No 1 was in blistering form as he swept aside Kohlschreiber 6-3 6-1 in just 59 minutes. A 5x major champion and a former World No. 1, her business success is just as impressive as her tennis achievements. Not only did she rake in plenty of dough by playing the sport and winning tournaments, but she also has had a number of endorsement deals.

Sharapova burst onto the tennis scene at 17 by upsetting Serena Williams to win Wimbledon in 2004. She went on to complete a career Grand Slam with two titles at the French Open and one each at the U.S. Open and Australian Open.

Now ranked 373, Sharapova had not played much tennis in the recent years due to her shoulder problems and had crashed out in the first rounds at Wimbledon, the US Open the recent Australian Open in Melbourne.

Asked after that defeat whether it might have been her last appearance at the Australian Open, Sharapova repeatedly replied with, "I don't know". Serena won 20 of them, including 18 in a row at one point!

A victor of 36 WTA titles who completed her career Grand Slam at Roland Garros in 2012 and spent 21 weeks atop the world rankings, Sharapova was at times the biggest attraction in her sport. She was originally banned from the sport for two years, which she called "unfairly harsh" in a Facebook post, before the global Court of Arbitration for Sport reduced the suspension.

The Russian-born Sharapova turned professional in 2001 at the age of 14.

Sharapova's earnings are also among the top-ever in her sport.

He said: "I would like everyone to give her a big round of applause for everything she has done in her career".

She describes the extremes of the game - the "untold tears and unspeakable joys" it brought her, adding that it's "a sport where [she] found a family, along with fans who rallied [her] for more than 28 years". In the evidence she presented at her tribunal, Sharapova said the drug was prescribed in 2005 by a doctor in Moscow to treat a mineral metabolism disorder, which had left her prone to colds and tonsil infections. "That's why it's so special to be a champion, even for one time". They tested my character, my will, my ability to channel my raw emotions into a place where they worked for me instead of against me. In whatever I might choose for my next chapter, my next mountain, I'll still be pushing. "It was about feeling like I was on the verge of falling off a cliff - which is why I constantly returned to the court to figure out how to keep climbing".
