Mary Pierce was born in Montreal and grew up in the United States. She showed great promise from the moment she first stepped onto a tennis court at the age of 10. When she was 13, Mary moved to France, and made her debut on the professional circuit a year later. In 1994, at the age of 19, she reached her first Grand Slam final. In 2000 Mary won her dream victory on centre court at Roland Garros, and is the last French player to win this prestigious international title. Mary is part of the very closed circle of tennis players who can count more than 500 wins. Her incredible career propelled her to the top of the world tennis scene, until, on the 26th of October 2006 in Linz, Austria, she suffered a terrible knee injury which ended her career. Her steadfast faith in Jesus has enabled her to continue, despite this ordeal.

To date Mary has remained firmly entrenched and active in the tennis world; coaching, commentating and even organising professional tournaments. In 2019, Mary was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
