|Birth Day||August 08, 1987|
|Tatjana Maria age||35 YEARS OLD|
After almost two decades as a German professional tennis player, Maria has advanced the farthest in a Grand Slam this summer at Wimbledon, as a working mother of two little girls. She has 13.6K followers on Twitter and 43.1K followers on Instagram, which has been tracking her Wimbledon success almost daily.
Before this year's Wimbeldon, the furthest Maria had gotten was back in 2017 when she attained the singles ranking as the world's 46th best player.
Maria took a sabbatical in 2013, to have her first child, who's now 8, and just last year she had her second daughter, whom she gave birth to just over a year ago. Ons Jabeur, her Wimbledon semifinal opponent, also happens to be her Palm Beach, Florida neighbor and barbecue buddy.
Her father Heinrich Malek was a Polish international handball player, and her husband is also her coach, the French former tennis player Charles-Edouard Maria, whom she married in 2013.
Maria is the first mother to advance to the semifinals since Serena Williams did so back in 2019. Her admitted tennis-playing role model-mother is Kim Clijsters, the retired Belgian mom who won three Grand Slam titles after giving birth to her daughter in 2008.
