Maria Sakkari has a tennis body to envy. Since 2016, the 27-year-old has become stronger. Sakkari's Instagram exercise video shows how she got her impressive figure.
Box jumps, medicine ball workouts, and weighted kinetic squats are included. It's exhausting.
Sakkari captioned the film, “Tag someone who you know would crush this workout,” joking that no one else could do such a physically rigorous chore.
“It's my working spirit, and I like it,” she said. I work out to feel like I'm working hard. That inspires me. “When I feel good, I can play well and compete properly.
Love the gym. I prefer sprinting and lifting to long-distance jogging. I hate running. I exercise to play more. I have an advantage in three-set or three-hour matches.
I view that as an advantage. I consider it one of my strengths.” Maria Sakkari—who? World number nine Sakkari is a top WTA player.
However, she's having trouble winning. She lost five finals after winning the Rabat Grand Prix in 2019. After reaching the French Open & US Open semi-finals, Sakkari hopes to go to a Grand Slam final.
She lost her opening match at the Stuttgart Open this month against Karolína Plíšková. WTA 1000 Madrid Open is her next competition.
