Greek Tennis star Maria Sakkari is featured on the February 2022 cover of Marie Claire magazine in Greece. Though Sakkari’s pictures in the magazine are okay, I feel the magazine could have done a better job in its photoshoot.
Maria Sakkari is the highest-ranked female Greek player in the Open era. She reached a peak ranking of world number 6 in 2021. That year, she reached the semifinals at the French Open and the US Open.
Sakkari plays an aggressive game backed by her powerful groundstrokes. She also has an incredible serve which gets her many cheap points in matches.
Sakkari’s mother Angelikí Kanellopoúlou is a former Top 50 player from Greece. She moved to Barcelona to train when she was 18. She currently resides in Monte Carlo like many top players to avoid taxes.
