Why we love Maria Sharapova

We were so, so wrong about Anna Kournikova – it was a bit like putting a tennis racquet in Keeley Hazell's hands and going, "Good luck!" But Sharapova is the business; a string of Grand Slam singles titles, a trademarked swinging volley that would shatter your nose and, of course, a body to die for.

Most famously of all, she won Wimbledon when she was just 17, by which time she was pretty much a fully-fledged Yank, having defected to the country when she was seven. And boy did she have a purpose: Papa Sharapova was determined to make his daughter the best damn player in the world, although he did give her five minutes off for a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot in 2006. Cheers, pops...
