Re: Arantxa Sánchez Vicario tells in her autobiography how her parents left her broke
That's just an estimate and if you get taxed twice for a lot of things and then you have agents taking like 10-15%, plus "advisors" taking their cut, that total can be more like 8-9 million. If it's put into faulty investments deals and such as well as being embezzled/syponed off by the hanger on'ers (parents, siblings), it can all go very fast. She probably was too busy playing tennis/traveling etc to take the time to know what was happening to her money. She probably trusted people that eventually screwed her over. This stuff happens all the time.
This. Nothing draws people to you like money. And when money's involved people do dreadful things - it turns people. Including parents, family and so called friends. And so often young women are ripped off when they're busy earning it and lining others pockets. Money can disappear very fast, along with those who spent it/took it.
I'm not surprised its happened, but I'm surprised it's Arantxa as the family Appeared
Hope the book is published in English as Arantxa was around at a very fascinating time in women's tennis.
