At the age of three, Sharapova moved with her family to Sochi. She began playing tennis at the age of four using a racket given to her by Yevgeng Kafelnikov's father. At the age five or six, at a tennis clinic in Moscow, Sharapova was spotted by Martina Navratilova, who urged her parents to get her serious coaching in the USA.
At the age of seven, she and her father boarded a plane to the USA with only $700. Her father took her to the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy where one of the coaches check her out. The story goes that maria knocked his hat off with the tennis ball, thereby making a favorable impression. This led her obtaining a scholarship. At the age of nine, she was signed up by a number of sponsors including Prince (racquets), Oakley and Nike.
In 2004, Sharapova became the second youngest Wimbledon women's champion in open era (after Martina Hingis) by defeating defending two-time champion Serena Williams in straight sets (6-1, 6-4). In the process she also became the first Russian ever to win that tournament.
