TENNIS star Maria Sharapova blows the competition away as she flaunts her athletic figure in sports underwear, snapped with windswept hair.
The five-time Grand Slam champion, 32, threw a curveball last week when she announced her retirement from the sport.
She said: “Tennis – I’m saying goodbye. After 28 years and five Grand Slam titles, I’m ready to scale another mountain.”
Before getting into the full swing of things though, the pro admits there are a few simple things she’s looking forward to enjoying first.
She said: “A sense of stillness with my family. Lingering over a morning cup of coffee. Unexpected weekend getaways. Workouts of my choice (hello, dance class!).”
She is also looking forward to retiring to her luxury LA beach pad, which took three years to build.
