Anna Kournikova was born on June 7, 1981 in Moscow. She discovered tennis at a very early age and became Junior World Champion in singles in 1995. At the age of 14, she was selected to play on the Russian Fed Cup team. In 1997, the young girl, still in her teens, managed to play in the semi-finals at Wimbledon. She reached the top 10 in the world the following year and reached the final of the Key Biscayne tournament. In 1998, she triumphed over Steffi Graf in Eastbourn but broke her thumb and had to stop training.

Anna was then in charge of advertising contracts and television sets. On her return to the field, she seems to be struggling to regain her former service. In 2000, she had the best year of her career with one final and eight semi-finals. Her game then began to wane, although she reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open in 2001 and the final of the Chinese Open in 2002. She retired from the professional circuit in 2003. In addition, the pretty blonde was the world’s number one doubles player in 1999.

On the private side, she shares the life of the singer Enrique Iglesias, whom she met in 2001. On December 16, 2017, the couple gave birth to twins, Nicholas and Lucy, in Miami. On February 13, 2020, the couple announced the birth of their third child, a girl born on January 30, by posting photos on Instagram. Her name is mAsha.
