Garbine Muguruza had a special sparring partner at the Miami Open on Thursday.

The two-time Grand Slam champion decided to have some fun out there in the middle as she practice alongside retired Spanish footballer Carlos Puyol at the newly-built Hard Rock Stadium.

As can be seen in the video below, the duo exchanged some long, friendly rallies, mostly at the net. While Puyol relied on his forehand volleys, Muguruza kept it simple with her lofted forehands.

Muguruza later took to her official Instagram account to share a picture of herself with Puyol and 15-time Major winner Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic also shared a selfie of the trio and joked: “I feel Spanish in this photo.”

Meanwhile, Muguruza is drawn to face Monica Niculescu in the second round, having got a bye first up.

In the men’s section, Djokovic is scheduled to lock horns with Bernard Tomic in his opener.
