Ekaterina Makarova beat the eminent Williams sisters. In 2016, Serena Williams was No.1 and had just 5 losses all season, including a match against Ekaterina Makarova, who edged Williams in the fourth round to reach the Australian Open quarterfinals.
– The day before, I was very actively visualizing my victory, – Ekaterina Makarova admitted to the host of Comedy Radio, – how I will tactically play against her, how the score will go, how I will react to the victory … Absolutely everything down to the smallest detail.
Even a winning interview on the court after the match, Ekaterina inadvertently predicted in advance in the locker room before the match.
According to the champion, for a tennis player, a racket is an extension of the hand. The athlete brought six rackets to the match in a case, and among them there were always two or three more dear and happy. The most emblematic racket with which she won the Olympic Games, Makarova gave it away, as well as her Olympic shoes. The shoes, with which Ekaterina won Olympic gold, went to the International Olympic Museum.
The show’s hosts couldn’t resist being jokingly asked why women always yell like that on the pitch.
– When you work out in the gym and lift a lot of weight, there is also an exhalation, because that way you help yourself a little, – the tennis player explained intelligibly to the presenters. – And, of course, when we finish the match on the court, we also don’t have enough air, so we start helping ourselves from the inside.
Ekaterina also told about what she did after the end of her sports career. Makarova became the co-owner of a winery and a hotel in Georgia, and together with the designer of the popular clothing brand ALRAWASH, she launched a collaboration – a casual line, echoing a tennis uniform.
