Throwback Thursday: Maria Sharapova

With the U.S. Open winding down, SwimDaily pays homage to Maria Sharapova

Alumni, Photos, Sports, Video

**********

It’s Throwback Thursday and there’s no one more appropriate to designate this honor to than Maria Sharapova. The 6-foot-2 Russian, who is the No. 3 ranked tennis player in the world, was forced out of this year’s U.S. Open with a shoulder injury. She also is a SI Swimsuit alumni, having been photographed for the 2006 issue. In this video, we look back at that 2006 shoot from Turks and Cacos as Maria makes the transition from tennis skirts to polka dot bikinis.

A picture of Caroline Wozniacki got mixed in with your Sharapova photos - the one where she's signing autographs! I only noticed because of the Adidas hat ... Maria Sharapova is with Nike.
