She won her two singles WTA Tour championships in the 2022 Copa Colsanitas and the 2018 Mallorca Open.

At the 2022 Wimbledon Championships, Maria defeated Astra Sharma, Sorana Cîrstea, the fifth seed Maria Sakkari (her fifth top-10 victory), the 12th seed Jeena Ostapenko (against whom she saved two set points), and advanced to her maiden Grand Slam quarterfinal.

On April 8, 2013, she married Charles-Edouard Maria, a former French tennis player, who served as her coach. Their first child, a daughter named Charlotte, was born on December 20, 2013, and their second daughter, Cecilia, was born on April 2, 2021.

After a match point miracle on No. 1 Court on Sunday, Maria is the only mother left at SW19. In the Wimbledon draw for 2022, she is not the most well-known mother (that honor belongs to none other than Serena Williams, obviously).
