Former Russian tennis sensation Maria Sharapova has taken up boxing training following her retirement from the game, Essentially Sports has reported.
She was seen training with Tony Cassano in a video on her Twitter account. She threw a series of punches with her hand-to-eye coordination and also did lunges while carrying weights.
The former tennis star started taking boxing lessons while serving a suspension sentence served to her over the use of a banned substance.
In an interview back in 2017, Sharapova stated that she took boxing training to keep herself in good form.
“It was great as I could imagine some particular people whom I wanted to hit,” she said in an interview back in 2017.
