Today begins the second week in Wimbledon 2015, the most important tournament in the world tennis. I want to pay my tribute to one of my favorite players: Maria Sharapova

Maria Yuryevna Sharapova: born 19 April 1987, is a Russian professional tennis player, who is ranked world No. 4 by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). A United States resident since 1994, Sharapova has competed on the WTA tour since 2001.

She has been ranked world No. 1 in singles by the WTA on five separate occasions, for a total of 21 weeks. She is one of ten women, and the lone Russian, to hold the career Grand Slam and is an Olympic medalist, having earned silver for Russia in women’s singles at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Sharapova became the world No. 1 for the first time on August 22, 2005 at the age of 18, and last held the ranking for the fifth time for four weeks from June 11, 2012 to July 8, 2012. Her 35 singles titles and five Grand Slam titles — two at the French Open and one each at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open — rank third amongst active players, behind Serena and Venus Williams. She won the year-ending WTA Finals in her debut in 2004. She has also won three doubles titles.

Despite an injury-prone career, Sharapova has achieved a rare level of longevity in the women’s game. She has won at least one singles title a year from 2003 until 2015, a streak only bested by Steffi Graf,Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. Several tennis pundits and former players have called Sharapova one of tennis’s best competitors.
