Ana Ivanovic swapped tennis racket for ice hockey stick as she graced her presence at a National Hockey League (NHL) game on Friday.

Ivanovic, who retired at the end of 2016 season, and her husband, footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger, were invited by Chicago Blackhawks for their fixture against Arizona Coyotes on Friday.

And, Ivanovic impressed with her forehand, as can be seen in the video below. “That was actually my first time on ice, but it was great,” she said afterward.


The 30-year-old also took to her official Instagram account to share glimpses from her outing.

“Now that I’ve retired from tennis I’m ready to move into my real passion as a professional hockey player. Thanks @nhlblackhawks for the great night!” she wrote the caption to her 1.5 million followers.

The couple’s presence, however, couldn’t inspire the Blackhawks as they went down 1-4 to the Coyotes. They are next scheduled to face Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday.
