Garbi to the rescue

Garbiñe Muguruza is an adrenalin junky, adding cave diving and water rescue to her growing list of off-court pursuits.

Getting ready for my second workout with the GEAS [Guardia Civil diving unit]. Our exercise is cave diving... Garbiñe Muguruza

She is using her time away from the tennis court to discover new adventures and this week spent time training with the Civil Guard in Mallorca.

She clearly isn’t afraid of taking a risk, both on and off the court, and her appetite for challenges extends way beyond the boundaries of the white lines.

The two-time Grand Slam champion joined in an underwater brigade rescue training program, fully equipped with wet suit, pads and a helmet as she was hoisted on a line up and down from the sea to a helicopter.

During the rescue exercise, the World No 15 was intensely focused, but flashed a quick smile for an unreal photo-op above the sea.

It wasn’t just a one-off experiment either, as she was soon back out in the water for a second exercise.

“Getting ready for my second workout with the GEAS [diving unit]. Our exercise is cave diving,” Muguruza wrote on Instagram.

The 27-year-old scaled Mount Kilimanjaro last year, the highest peak in all of Africa, braving freezing temperatures, cliff drops and exhaustion during the five-day hike.

Muguruza loves to hike and after a week in Italy simply being a tourist, she recently returned home to Geneva and trekked up Monte Salève for a picnic.

In her last on-court appearance, the 2016 Roland Garros champion fell short in Paris to American Danielle Collins in the third round, and currently is not entered in next month’s final WTA event in Linz.
