Iva Majoli

Iva Majoli is a former pro tennis player from Croatia. She was born in 1977 and started playing professional game at the age of 14. She reached World No. 4 in 1996, which was her career’s best. Without a doubt, she played her best tennis in her teen years.

The best time for Majoli was her late teens. She beat Martina Hingis in French Open in 1997 at a tender age of 19 to win the title. She also won another eight titles during her career. She also won one women’s doubles title in her career.

Majoli won the Family Circle Cup in Carolina in 2002 to gain instant fame on the top level. Soon after her victory, she reached another final as she continued climbing back to the top ranking and best of her game. However, she wasn’t able to keep her momentum and slipped further down the rankings. She retired in 2004 after failing to climb back to the top rank.

Majoli retired early and couldn’t hit the peak in her later years because of successive injuries in her last few years as professional tennis career. She suffered a shoulder injury and that literally ended her career as she struggled to make it back to the top level. She retired and got married in 2006 with Stipe Maric. She has a daughter.

Majoli  famously participated in Dancing With the Stars but got eliminated in the first round.
