Off The Court, Marina Shamayko
Hello, I’m Marina Shamayko, a professional tennis player, sponsored by Inphorm. I am from Russia and would love to share part of my story with you:
At 8 years old my first coach was Eduard Davydenko, who at the time was training his brother, World Tennis Great, Nikolay Davydenko. I was at once introduced to the world of professional sports. I immediately learned to have a professional mentality and the meaning of hard work.
With my mother’s support and belief in me I was able to overcome difficulties and became one of the best Russian junior players and competed as a junior at Roland Garros Wimbledon Tournament.
I signed a contract with IMG management and moved to Rome, Italy. At the age of 16, still under the guidance of my mother, I turned professional. I quickly gained by best WTA ranking of 300 in singles and 180 in doubles.
I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity ofdoing what I love; world travel, amazing places, wonderful people, and dressing in the best.
I’m so proud to be a part of the Inphorm brand. It inspires me on court with its comfort, high quality, and luxurious style. I’m inPhorm’s number one fan and every new collection amazes me.
Outside of tennis, I live a healthy lifestyle. I eat all organic foods and practice yoga, and meditation to help me stay my best on the court.
After spending 10 years in Rome, I’ve lived between Los Angeles and Miami and am currently based in Paris.
