A former Wimbledon champion and world number one seems to have taken up a new career as Zumba expert.

The 29-year-old, who defeated Venus Williams at the Wimbledon final in 2017, appears to be enjoying Zumba amid a break from the sport. 

She was recently spotted taking part at a new edition of ZIN Academy – which was held at the Martín Carpena Palace in Malaga last Saturday.

Muguruza, who has already posted several clips of her practicing Zumba over the years, was spotted on stage dancing to ‘Vagabundo’ by Sebastian Yatra.

She revealed that players have to work on containing their emotions in tennis, while it is the complete opposite in Zumba. 

‘The difference between my usual training and Zumba is that in tennis you work on containing your emotions, being focused and not making mistakes,’ she said.

‘However, in Zumba, it is the opposite. It doesn’t matter if you make a mistake, you let yourself be carried away by the music and your emotions come to the foreground’ 

Back in April, the 29-year-old revealed her plans to extend her break from the sport and spend time with her family.

‘Spending time with family and friends and it’s really been healthy and amazing so I am going to lengthen this period till summer,’ she posted on Instagram.

‘Thanks for all the lovely messages and will be updating you guys.’

Earlier this year, the Spaniard stated her intention to compete at the Abu Dhabi Open. However, the former world number one would go on to pull out of the competition.

The two-time Grand Slam winner has not tasted success in a major competition since her victory at Wimbledon in 2017.

She would go on to beat Venus Williams in straight sets, while her first Grand Slam came two years before at the French Open – where she defeated Serena Williams.

Muguruza said back in July that she plans to return to action next year following a ‘sabbatical.’

Speaking at the Chamartin Tennis Club, where she received the Gold Medal for Sports Merit, the Spaniard said: ‘I’m enjoying this sabbatical, I think it’s good to stop but it’s not a definitive goodbye. I want to prepare myself to come back, when I’m ready I’ll go back to the courts.’
