Sanchez Vicario says $60M in career winnings gone

Former tennis star Arantxa Sanchez Vicario says in a book that her parents lost an estimated $60 million in career earnings through mismanagement.

The 40-year-old Sanchez Vicario says her parents were obsessed with her tennis career and controlled most aspects of it. She says in a memoir published Tuesday that she does not speak to her parents or brothers Emilio and Javier.

Sanchez Vicario says she got a monthly payment from her father and trusted him to invest the rest.

She won four Grand Slam singles titles during her career and is Spain's Fed Cup captain.

Sanchez Vicario's mother, Marisa, responded in an open letter to Spanish media that she and her husband were devastated by their daughter's accusations.
