Sanchez Vicario is broke!
« on: February 09, 2012, 01:52:02 AM »

"In the 1990s, Arantxa Sanchez Vicario was the clay court queen of tennis, winning four Grand Slams and accumulating more than $60 million in earnings and endorsements. Today, the former world No. 1 says she has "nothing," the result of years of financial mismanagement by her mother and father.
 
Sanchez Vicario says her father put her on a strict budget during her career. She received a monthly allowance and assumed the rest was being invested.
 
As she claims in a new autobiography, excerpts of which were published this last weekend in the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, that's not what happened.
 
"My parents left me with nothing and now I am indebted to the [tax authorities] and I will not be quiet," she wrote. "My properties are worth a lot less than those of my brother Javier, who has earned a lot less than me. [] I never questioned the way my father managed my money. I have been a victim, I was duped."

Sanchez Vicario says she is estranged from her immediate family.
 
Her mother denies the claims made in the book. Marisa Vicario Rubio told El Mundo that her daughter's claims are "lies."
 
"We never took advantage of Arantxa and under no circumstances is she broke," she said."

So sad!  No skill now; except teaching tennis and the Spanish tennis commentator!

She earned frekin 60 mil. If she put half a mil under the bed, or in some sock she would be still pretty rich now. I don't know, the story looks a bit weird.

I remember the gaudy way her mother dressed, like she wad royalty.  This doesn't surprise me.

Hopefully conchita will weigh in.

she should be fine tho. she can get a job as a trainer. I still don't understand that she made $60 mill . it doesn't sound very realistic, but who knows?

My first impression was the whole story sounded kooky.
I don't think we have all the information.
Oddly enough, Babs and I are of the same mind hoping La Senora of all things related to tennis in Spain, Conchita, will set the record straight.

I always admired the pluck of ASV and she seems to be a straight up character.  Let's hope for the best for her.
CONK da ball!!!

How can you be the so-called "queen of clay court tennis" when you have a losing record against Steffi Graf and half as many French Open titles as she does?  :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

Sanchez Vicario has as many French Open titles as Monica Seles who got robbed of her prime!

Arantxa started live in the pro tour pretty young maybe a year or two after Steffi Graf.  Like most teens; you obey your parents and they control your world.  Just look at Caroline Wozniacki for a curent update of how parents affect their child; or until recently Donald Young. 

So, I can see why Arantxa was still caught up in the parent's control even after her tennis career was over - she knew nothing else but to obey and do as her parents ordered!  Maybe that why she won too!
