Latvian tennis star Jelena Ostapenko had her first boxing lesson as she trained with former world champion pugilist and compatriot Mairis Briedis.

Ostapenko, the 2017 French Open champion, later took to her official Instagram account to share a picture of herself with Briedis and his team following a training session.

“First ever boxing session today, had so much fun and enjoyed it a lot. I’m huge fan of Mairis and good luck in the next fights Champ!” she captioned the image.

Briedis, who recently tasted the first defeat of his career after losing to Oleksandr Usyk last month, also posted the same image to his followers.

“Boxing works for everyone. Happy to see even more professional athletes including it into their trainings. With the French Open champion @jelena.ostapenko1997,” he wrote.

Notably, Ostapenko had seen Briedis fight Usyk live in Riga last month.
