Members of Madrid 2016 delegation Raul Gonzalez and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario react after Rio de Janiero was awarded the 2016 Olympic Games during the 121st IOC session in Copenhagen October 2, 2009.
MADRID (AP)—The Spanish Supreme Court has ordered former top-ranked women’s player Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario to pay back approximately $5.1 million in unpaid income tax.
The court rejected Sanchez-Vicario’s assertion that she was a resident of Andorra and not Spain from 1989 to 1993.
The court said in its ruling Thursday that the three-time French Open champion “never effectively lived in Andorra and never had the intention of doing it in any moment, either.”
The 37-year-old Barcelona native, who also won the U.S. Open in 1994, was appealing the decision from a high court ruling in July 2003.
