Mary grew up in Queens, New York with her brother, Charlie, and sister, Gina.

She became a professional tennis player in 1977, but after just three years on tour, she was forced to retire due to having serious problems with her knees. Before her retirement, Mary was the 33rd best tennis player in the world. To speak of her success on tour, she won only one title during her short career and it was the one in mixed doubles at the French Open in 1977, when she was partnered with her childhood friend John McEnroe. Other than that, she didn’t have much success on tour, including in singles, but it began her net worth..

Soon after retirement, Mary started a career as a sportscaster; she found her first job at the USA Network and stayed with the channel until 1987. In 1981 she was also recruited by PBS with which she stayed until 1988. Thanks to her rising popularity, she also joined CBS Sports in 1986, and began her US Open coverage for the network the same year, which has continued until the present. Two years after joining CBS Sports, she was recruited by ESPN and stayed on the network for the next nine years, and then returned to the channel in 2003, so adding steadily to her net worth.

To speak further of her tennis coverage, Mary worked for HBO and its Wimbledon coverage – their collaboration started in 1996 and ended in 1999, but it certainly increased her net worth. Also, since 1997 she has been a correspondent on “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” on HBO.

Mary has also covered tennis in the Olympic Games held in Atlanta in 1996, Sydney 2000 and Athens in 2004, which also added to her net worth. Mary was used by NBC for covering the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics, such sports as skeleton, bobsled and luge, and then in 2006 at the Winter Games in Torino, Mary covered figure skating and was the host of the daily figure skating show aired on USA Network

Thanks to her successful work as a tennis reporter and analyst as well, Mary has received several prestigious awards, including being named Best Commentator by Tennis Magazine three years in a row, from 1988 to 1991, then broadcaster of the Year by the Women’s Tennis Association twice, in 1981 and 1985, and Best Commentator by World Tennis magazine in 1986.

Mary is also an accomplished author and has written two books with Martina Navratilova, and one with Paul Fein, the sales of which added to her net worth.

She also collaborated with Frank Deford on the HBO documentary “Dare to Compete: The Struggle of Women in Sport”, for which she received a Peabody Award. She has one more Peabody Award, which she received for the documentary that spoke about Billie Jean King.

Regarding her personal life, Mary was married to tennis instructor Bill Bowden from 1983 until 1998; the couple has two children together. She has apparently been single since then.

Mary is related to Mike Francesa, a radio talk show host and television commentator. On one occasion Mary was his guest in the show, and during the episode, the two confirmed their family relationship.
