Despite an injury-prone career, Sharapova has achieved a rare level of longevity in women's tennis, having won at least one singles title a year from 2003 until 2015, a streak only bested by three players; Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert.
Sharapova is the latest star athlete to visit the mountain gorillas in Rwanda after Arsenal defender David Luiz last month.
