A Former Wimbledon Champion and World Number One Pursues a New Career as a Zumba Expert

Former Wimbledon champion and world number one Garbine Muguruza is now a Zumba expert

Garbine Muguruza has embarked on an exciting new career path, showcasing her skills as a Zumba expert. Recently, she participated in a ZIN Academy event at the Martín Carpena Palace in Malaga, where the 29-year-old athlete demonstrated her passion for dance. With several clips of her practicing Zumba shared over the years, Muguruza took the stage to dance to the rhythm of ‘Vagabundo’ by Sebastian Yatra.

Garbine Muguruza highlighted the distinctions between her usual tennis training and her newfound passion for Zumba. In tennis, the focus is on controlling emotions, maintaining concentration, and avoiding errors. Zumba, on the other hand, encourages an entirely different approach where mistakes are embraced, and emotions take center stage, all while moving to the beat of the music.

The ZIN Academy event in Malaga brought together fitness and enjoyment, allowing participants to express themselves for an exhilarating 10 hours of learning and entertainment. The event was led by Beto Perez, the founder of the Zumba brand, renowned for his vibrant energy and choreography.

Muguruza has previously showcased her Zumba skills on social media, sharing videos of her dancing. In July, the 29-year-old tennis star announced her intention to return to the sport next year after her current sabbatical. While enjoying her break, she remains dedicated to preparing herself for a successful comeback to the tennis courts.

Muguruza’s last match dates back to January, when she faced Linda Noskova at the Lyon Open and suffered a straight-sets defeat.

Garbine Muguruza, a two-time Grand Slam champion, has not savored victory in a major competition since her triumph at Wimbledon in 2017. That memorable Wimbledon win came two years after her initial Grand Slam victory.

In 2015, she clinched her first Grand Slam title by defeating Serena Williams in the French Open final.

While the former world No. 1 eagerly anticipates her return to the tennis court, it’s evident that she is currently relishing life beyond the realm of sports.
