Kristina Mladenovic seems pretty excited about the upcoming season. She is working out really hard in order to continue with her momentum, especially at the big tournaments. The Frenchwoman recently posted about her workout schedule and updated fans about her confidence and energy. In a way, it also looked as if Mladenovic was sending a warning to her fellow opponents ahead of the 2021 season.

“Tennis ball chained with a small circuit of 40,” wrote Mladenovic on Twitter.

The 27-year-old is doing ropes, skipping, running around, and pushing weights, and that too, in extremely hot conditions. What was even more intriguing about her workout was that she was doing all of these in lapses of six. That is what makes it tougher and challenging for the Frenchwoman. However, this shows that she is ready to sweat even more in order to perform well in the upcoming season. This gruelling workout is certainly needed since she hasn’t played a single game after winning the doubles’ title at the French Open 2020.

Mladenovic’s training is not only limited to doing ropes or pushing weights. She has discovered a couple of new techniques and games for better foot movement.

Recently, she also posted a video on Twitter playing beach volleyball. What was interesting was that the Frenchwoman was playing that to improve her foot movement. It was a part of her foot volley drills and she was clearly enjoying it.
