Maria Sharapova, who reigned as the world No. 1 tennis player from 2005 to 2012 and secured 36 career titles, served up some seriously good style on day three of this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

Instead of experimenting with tenniscore, the former athlete instead went all-out safari, dressed in a lightweight wool tricotine shirt and trouser combo by British heritage brand Burberry.

The Russian-born, five-time Grand Slam champion wore the shirt, which has epaulettes and side flap pockets, cinched at the waist with a B buckle belt - and buttoned up to the neck. Her matching trousers featured combat pockets on the sides.

She accessorised the look with a cute Mini Peg Duffle Handbag and round-toe Baby Pumps, both also by Burberry.

Maria sat with her fiancé, British auctioneer Alexander Gilkes, the couple welcomed their first child, son Theodore, in 2022. They were joined at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club’s Royal Box by Birgitte Eva van Deurs Henriksen, the Duchess of Gloucester and former Prime Minister Theresa May. 

Serving on Centre Court that day was fellow Russian player Daniil Medvedev, who was defeated by France’s Alexandre Muller. Japan’s Naomi Osaka and Italy’s Matteo Berrettini also went through to the next round.
