Born in the year 1981 on 24th May, to father Michael Taylor and mother Denna Noble in Melbourne situated in Victoria in Australia, Penelope Jane Taylor spent most of her childhood days growing up with her two siblings in Victoria.
Her interest in basketball was ignited because of her parents who were interested in basketball.
That pattern continued up until the Mercury’s championship run in 2007, when Taylor departed Phoenix for Russia.
In fact, Taylor would play a game of hot potato with the Mercury. Like Taurasi, Taylor would get a taste of silver during the 20 Olympic Games.
In the year 2009, Taylor suffered from an injury which kept her away from the game for most of the season, but she returned to the game for the WNBA championship.
Diana Taurasi practically has her own library of WNBA honors.Over 10 years ago, Taylor found herself involved with Rodrigo Rodrigues Gil, a professional beach volleyball player from Brazil.After three years of being together, though, they both split and moved on with their lives.She also went on to win the Most Valuable Player award in the year 2001 in the WNBL.After taking a break from the league, she returned for the 2014-2015 season and this time played with the team Rangers.
