Anna’s parents are also well-known athletes, so there is a high chance that this influenced her choice to become a tennis player. Anna started playing tennis from a very young age and step by step her skills improved. She was a part of the Spartak Tennis Club and had an opportunity to be trained by Larissa Preobrazhenskaya. Soon Anna started participating in various competitions and gained more and more attention from others. When she was only 10 years old, she started training at Nick Bollettieri’s tennis academy. Four years later Kournikova won the European Championship and this was the time when her net worth really began growing. Later she continued showing great results at various tournaments and soon she gained the titles of Junior European Champion U-18 and ITF Junior World Champion U-18.
In 1995 Anna won the Fed Cup and this had a huge impact on the growth of Anna’s net worth. Of course, not all tournaments were successful for Anna, but she never gave up and continued improving her skills and achieving better results. In 1999 Anna and Martina Hingis won the Australian doubles Grand Slam title and proved that she was successful in doubles as well. Unfortunately, in 2001 Anna experienced several injuries and was not able to play for some time. Despite this fact, Anna recovered from her injuries and was later able to achieve great results. In 2002 she and Martina Hingis were able to win the Australian Open again, and this made Anna’s net worth a lot higher. Sadly, Anna again experienced some severe injuries and finally decided to stop her professional career as a tennis player. However, her net worth was by then considerable.
Anna still plays in some charity events so her fans are able to see her playing. As mentioned, Anna has involved herself in many other projects. She has even appeared in the movie called “Me, Myself & Irene”, and in the television show entitled “The Biggest Lover”. These also added a lot to her net worth.
Anna is considered to be one of the most popular tennis players and one of the hottest women of all time. This only proves that despite the fact that now she does not play tennis professionally, she still has a lot of fans all over the world.
If to talk about Anna’s personal life, it can be said that in 2001 there were rumors that she married Sergei Fedorov, but at the same time she started a relationship with Enrique Iglesias. There were again rumors that they married, but no one has confirmed them. All in all, Anna Kournikova is a very beautiful and talented woman, who has been working hard from the very young age in order to achieve what she has now. As she is now 34 years old, there is no doubt that she will continue participating in various projects as well as tennis activities.
