Maria, her older sister, attended Wharton’s undergraduate business school and competed in college tennis for the University of Pennsylvania.
Her parents emigrated from Russia to the United States a few years before she was born to give their older daughter better opportunities. They worked in the finance and banking industries, and neither played competitive tennis while growing up.
