The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands welcomes 2023 Wimbledon No.1, Marketa Vondroušová, in an exclusive residency this Autumn. From the 17th-19th November, the women’s champion will be on court not only to welcome guests personally but to offer once in a lifetime coaching for both adults and children in a paradise locale.
The design-masterpiece-resort’s exceptional facilities provide some of the Indian Ocean’s most sophisticated guest experiences, its state-of-the-art tennis offering included.
With a floodlit synthetic hard court providing the playing characteristics of the Australian Open Grand Slam, lessons with the resort’s pro provide a sophisticated tennis destination for the whole family to enjoy, from beginners to experienced players.
On a ‘first come first served’ basis, 20 lucky adults (aged 14+) and 20 junior VIPs will need to book in quick to secure their place in Vondroušová’s clinics in November.
A money can’t buy opportunity to hone play with the WTA’s World No.6 and master of the ‘drop shot’ awaits. Hopping off the court, Vondroušová will also be hosting an intimate Q&A, for a chance to glean insights in to life at the top of the game, with photo opportunities plus the chance to take home signed tennis apparel, racket and shoes.
Reigning Wimbledon champion, winning the tournament in 2023, Vondroušová is the first unseeded woman to secure the singles title. Runner-up at the 2019 French Open, Vondroušová became the first teenage major finalist in nearly a decade.
With two singles titles out of six finals on the WTA Tour, and a silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics under her belt, a stellar trajectory for the former junior world No. 1.
This exclusive occasion creates the Golden Slam escape at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands. From luxuriating in the resort’s iconic spherical villas, unadulterated wellness at The Ritz-Carlton Spa with Bamford, life-aquatic journeys, with hands-on conservation research, in Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, to decadent dining across the resort’s seven restaurants and bars – a retreat for champions.
