Mary Pierce Biography
A Tennis Natural, Father's Effect, The Jim Pierce Rule, Two Grand Slam Singles TitlesCONTACT INFORMATION
French tennis player
At five-feet-ten-inches and 150 pounds, Pierce has a powerful ground stroke that can overwhelm even her toughest opponents. She has won 15 tournaments, including two Grand Slam singles titles, the Australian Open in 1995 and the French Open in 2000. During the first half of her career Pierce's accomplishments on the court were often been overshadowed by antics of her overzealous and abusive father in the stands, who was banned from attending his daughter's tennis tournaments in 1993 by the Women's Tennis Council (WTC).
Address: IMG Center, 1360 E. 9th Street, Ste. 100, Cleveland, Ohio 44114.
