From Centre Court to saucy snaps! Russian Wimbledon girls’ winner Sofya Zhuk turns to OnlyFans for her next career step after quitting tennis at 20 – but there’s one thing she will ‘never’ do
- Russian star Sofya Zhuk won the girls’ singles title at Wimbledon back in 2015
- After retiring in 2020 due to injury, she moved to Florida and started modelling
- Zhuk has now told fans that she is planning to open her own OnlyFans page
Sofya Zhuk won the girls’ singles title at Wimbledon in 2015, but has since ditched professional tennis for another source of income – as an OnlyFans creator.
Russian Zhuk, now 23 years old, has announced her plans to open a channel on the adult platform, which allows people to offer photos and videos of themselves for a monthly fee.
It is a far cry from her success as a teenager, beating fellow Russian Anna Blinkova in straight sets on Wimbledon’s famous No. 1 Court to win the girls’ singles title without dropping a single set throughout the tournament.
However, despite a strong start as a junior player, emerging from Justine Henin’s tennis academy in Belgium, Zhuk found that her career was blighted by injury.
Her last professional match came in a first round qualifying defeat at Wimbledon in 2019, with back injuries causing a premature end to Zhuk’s tennis career the following year at the age of just 20.

The Russian tennis player now lives in Miami renting boats and cars to people in Florida
She told German site Bild: ‘My body needed rest. I was in so much trouble that even the doctors wouldn’t treat me.
‘I don’t normally digest protein, so the discs in my vertebrae behave like those of a 60-year-old.
‘I’ve always played in terrible pain, I loved tennis but I had to think about my health.’
Now living in Miami, Florida, Zhuk works by renting out expensive cars and yachts in the area.
The Russian also works as a model – and has now announced plans to take charge of her own career by setting up the OnlyFans page.

Zhuk said: ‘Guys, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! There will be a lot of interesting material.’
However, the former tennis protege has declared that she will never be fully without clothes on the platform, instead choosing to stick to bikinis or cocktail dresses, as displayed on her Instagram page, which has over 169,000 followers.
The price of monthly access to Zhuk’s OnlyFans page remains unknown, alongside when the content will actually be able for supporters to appreciate.
Her opponent in the Wimbledon final back in 2015, Anna Blinkova, remains a top professional, and will face Belgium’s Ysaline Bonaventure in the first round of the French Open in Paris.
