Wimbledon Maria Sharapova Career

The Wimbledon career of Maria Sharapova is detailed below in an easy to follow format for you. The 26-year-old Sharapova won the Wimbledon singles title in her second year at Wimbledon in 2004, was the runner-up in 2011 and made back-to-back semi finals in 2005-06.

Sharapova has played 11 Wimbledon Championships and has an impressive career Wimbledon record of 38-10. The 1.88m Russian has a 4-3 win-loss record against Top 10 players, won 36 matches without dropping a set and a 6-3 record in tie breaks.

Sharapova was one of the many top ranked players, including five WTA former World No.1’s to be upset on Day 3 of the 2013 edition of Wimbledon. The lower ranked players are backing themselves in and coming out on top with far greater regularity than some time at Wimbledon.
