Maria Sharapova Was Included In The List Of The Richest Women In The United States Who Independently Earned Their Fortune

Maria Sharapova was included in the list of the richest women in the United States who independently earned their fortune.

In 1995, Maria Sharapova moved to the United States with her father and had lived there ever since. The former Russian tennis player considers America her home and speaks openly about it. "I quickly got used to the American way of life. I moved there for the sake of my career, for the sake of tennis, to develop this talent, to strive for a dream, and a result. And it so happened that I stayed where I trained.

Years have passed, I have made friends, met so many people that I consider the United States my home. Many of my relatives still live in Sochi and the South of Russia, and I still have a strong connection with them. But if we talk about where I put down my roots, it's definitely America," Sharapova said on the Condé Nast Traveller podcast. In short, it is not surprising that the American Forbes included Maria in its annual ranking of the richest women in the United States (with a note that they achieved their fortune themselves and did not receive it through inheritance or divorce).

In this list, consisting of 200 positions, the former tennis player got for the first time and took the 87th line. Her fortune was estimated at $200 million. In the first place — the owner of $8 billion Diana Hendricks, head of the largest US manufacturer of building materials ABC Supply. Also on the list are a lot of show business representatives who have managed to monetize popularity by developing their own businesses-Kylie and Kris Jenner, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and many others.
