Maria Yuryevna Sharapova (Russian: Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова, IPA: [mɐˈrʲijə ˈjʉrʲjɪvnə ʂɐˈrapəvə] ( listen); born April 19, 1987) is a Russian professional tennis player. 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 only Russian, to hold the career Grand Slam. She is also an Olympic medalist, having won silver 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 36 singles titles and five Grand Slam titles—two at the French Open and one each at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and US Open—rank third among 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 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, with John McEnroe calling her one of the best the sport has ever seen.

Sharapova has been featured in a number of modeling assignments, including a feature in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She has appeared in many advertisements, including those for Nike, Prince, and Canon, and has been the face of several fashion houses, most notably Cole Haan. Since February 2007, she has been a United Nations Development Programme Goodwill Ambassador, concerned specifically with the Chernobyl Recovery and Development Programme. In June 2011, she was named one of the "30 Legends of Women's Tennis: Past, Present and Future" by Time and in March 2012 was named one of the "100 Greatest of All Time" by Tennis Channel. According to Forbes, she has been named highest-paid female athlete in the world for 11 consecutive years and earned US$285 million (including prize money) since she turned pro in 2001.

In March 2016, Sharapova revealed she had failed a drug test at the 2016 Australian Open on January 26, 2016. She had tested positive for meldonium, a substance that had been banned (effective January 1, 2016) by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). On June 8, 2016, she was suspended from playing tennis for two years by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). On October 4, 2016, the suspension was reduced to 15 months, starting from the date of the failed test, as the Court of Arbitration for Sports found that she had committed "no significant fault" and that she had taken the substance "based on a doctor's recommendation [...] with good faith belief that it was appropriate and compliant with the relevant rules". She returned to the WTA tour on April 26, 2017 at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

In 2018, she launched a new programme to mentor women entrepreneurs.

La Virgen María hizo a Santo Domingo quince promesas para quienes acostumbren rezar el Santo Rosario: Quien rece constantemente mi Rosario, recibirá cualquier gracia que me pida. Prometo mi especialísima protección y grandes beneficios a los que devotamente recen mi Rosario. El Rosario es el escudo contra el infierno, destruye el vicio, libra de los pecados y abate las herejías. El Rosario hace germinar las virtudes para que las almas consigan la misericordia divina. Sustituye en el corazón de los hombres el amor del mundo con el amor de Dios y los eleva a desear las cosas celestiales y eternas. El alma que se me encomiende por el Rosario no perecerá. El que con devoción rece mi Rosario, considerando sus sagrados misterios, no se verá oprimido por la desgracia, ni morirá de muerte desgraciada, se convertirá si es pecador, perseverará en gracia si es justo y, en todo caso será admitido a la vida eterna. Los verdaderos devotos de mi Rosario no morirán sin los Sacramentos. Todos los que rezan mi Rosario tendrán en vida y en muerte la luz y la plenitud de la gracia y serán partícipes de los méritos bienaventurados. Librare bien pronto del Purgatorio a las almas devotas a mi Rosario. Los hijos de mi Rosario gozarán en el cielo de una gloria singular. Todo cuanto se pida por medio del Rosario se alcanzara prontamente. Socorreré en sus necesidades a los que me propaguen mi Rosario. He solicitado a mi Hijo la gracia de que todos los cofrades y devotos tengan en vida y en muerte como hermanos a todos los bienaventurados de la corte celestial. Los que rezan el Rosario son todos hijos míos muy amados y hermanos de mi Unigénito Jesús. La devoción al Santo Rosario es una señal manifiesta de predestinación de gloria.

Hello Maria. I italian man you remember.. You my friend back year.. But improvvisamente you not speaking with me.. Why? You bad. You no honest..

Hi Maria, Wish you best of luck.

Bonsoir Maria, Tu as vu la course de chevaux à Saint-Cloud ? C'était juste pour le gagnant, Maria ! Juste, mais, remporté, quand-même ! Le Tour d'Italie nous a ravi de voir les coureurs se battent pour remporter l'étape , très éprouvante , aujourd'hui, avec des pourcentage de pentes très accentuées, Maria ! C'est énorme à gravir 11% d'inclinaison ! À la vitesse ou ils l'ont gravi, il faut avoir un sacré système cardiaque et une ventilation pulmonaire impressionnante, Maria ! Sinon tu suffoque, Maria ! Certains n'en pouvaient plus, ils saturaient, trops dur la Côte à monter, Maria ! Bravo pour la victoire du Hollandais qui a fait une remarquable remontée sur le Colombien pour passer la ligne d'arrivée ! Félicitations pour lui ! Les reines du shopping nous ont encore fait rire avec leurs commentaires sur chacune d'entre elles, Maria ! En cette veille de commémoration de la victoire de la France face à l'Allemagne, en 1945, le 8 mai, précisément ! Qui célèbrera des demain, une cérémonie commémorative à Paris, en présence du Président de la République, Emmanuel Macron, qui sera célébré devant l'arc de triomphe, à partir de 9 h25 sur France 2, Maria ! Pour l'occasion, je propose que nous célébrons, ce soir, avec radio FG sur 98.2 MHz, et l'émission TOGETHER, TOUS AVEC MOI, puis, M6 MUSIC FÊTE SES 20 ANS, pour la soirée, ma chérie ! Sur M6, bien-sûr, Maria ! Profitons-en, Maria ! La vie est trop courte, ma chérie ! OK?( sourires) ! Je reviendrai vers toi dans le courant de la soirée, mon Bibinou ! Promis ! Danse bien ! Sans retenue ! Lâche toi, ma Puce ! Passe une bonne soirée, mon Bibinou ! Profite bien, Bébé ! Je te laisse en t'embrassant avec beaucoup de tendresse et d'affection et d'amour pour toi ma belle Princesse ! Je danserais avec toi par la pensée ma danseuse acrobatique rock'n'roll ! ( sourires) ! Gros Gros Gros Gros Gros Gros Bisous mon Bibinou ! Toujours de très fortes pensées pour toi ma fiffi d'amour ! Grooooooooooos bisous mon petit Caviar Sibérien !

اللي شاف هاد الكومنتير يطرجم ليها و يگول ليها صيفطي لنا الفيديو احمباباك حمد يماك 😂😂 فرحانة زعما موقع والو 😂😂

Ieri ho comprato il tuo libro autobiografico, lo sto leggendo e mi sta piacendo, nella prefazione dici che vorresti battere nuovamente la tua amica e rivale Serena per poi ritirarti e appendere la racchetta al chiodo!

Maria you are always locking great and fabulous

Happy birthday Dear lady

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASHA...

If you ever need a theme song you have two great options: you could easily adapt the Avicii song 'Wake me Up,' changing the lyrics 'wake me up when its all over' to 'Maria Sharapova'. OR Change the chorus and title of Madonna's 'Over and Over' to Sharapova.

Happy birthday Masha🎂... God bless you... Hugs and i hope see you winning a gran slam again

Happy Birthday 🎂 Masha 💜💜💜

YOUR BIRTHDAY IS COMING PRINCESS😍😍😍😍

In honor of #IWD, I wanted to highlight seven women that I have had the pleasure of working alongside in the past eight months. When creating a female business entrepreneurship program, I couldn’t have imagined a group so driven, humble, and intelligent.🤗

Most beAutiful Maria,You lives in people heart because you are very great.

YOU look GORGEOUS, Masha! Love your Tiger trousers... B|

You will be very soon engaged or married before the next match so your boyfriend can make sure you never get anywhere again in tennis. He is there to stop you and so far he has done so. He will bring you down. Bad choice as usual.

Can I get the name of your drug dealer?
