Julia Goerges is unlikely to be switching careers to become a professional footballer anytime soon if the tennis star’s attempts at keepy-uppy are anything to go by!
Goerges – the world number 13 – got into the World Cup spirit ahead of Germany’s crucial Group F game against South Korea by having a bit of a kick-about for the WTA cameras.
The 29-year-old suffered an early exit at the Nature Valley International this week as she was beaten in the first-round by Aryna Sabalenka, but she is hoping her compatriots in Die Mannschaft can avoid elimination from the World Cup by clinching victory in Kazan.
After a valiant effort that culminated in a best score of nine kick-ups, she admitted football just wasn’t her forte.
“It doesn’t mean I can play football, just because I’m German,” she said.
“Just because I’m German doesn’t mean I can play football!”
