Former world number one Russia’s Maria Sharapova posted a video on the social media platform with an interesting caption.
The 36-year-old retired from the sport in February 2020, much to the surprise of many as at the time of the announcement, she was just 32 years old.
Sharapova, in a post on her official account on the social media platform Instagram, stated that she was not aware that she had to do so much hard work even after retirement. "I thought I wouldn't have to do this stuff in retirement," she wrote.
Sharapova ended her career with five Grand Slam titles under her belt. Interestingly, despite winning just five major titles, she managed to achieve the career Grand Slam after lifting the title at least once on every court.
Her first major triumph came in 2004 when she defeated the former world number one Belgium’s Justine Henin-Hardenne in the final in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 6-4.
Sharapova’s last major triumph came in the year 2014 as she won the French Open after beating the former world number one Romania’s Simona Halep in the final with a score of 6–4, 6–7(5–7), 6–4. Roland Garros remains the only Grand Slam where Sharapova managed to lift the title twice.
