Garbine Muguruza says tennis is simply not on her mind as she enjoys time away from the Tour.

The two-time Grand Slam champion has not played since February and though she previously said she intends to return in 2024, she says she is relishing every moment not being a professional tennis player.

“Tennis has no place in my routine,” the 30-year-old said, in an interview with Women’s Health Magazine. “I still pay attention to my peers, from time to time I can play but not intensely, more for fun. It doesn’t occupy my mind, my day or my routines, I’m really taking a real break and trying to stay away from the court.

“I am living this break very happily since it was something that my body and my mind needed so I am really enjoying these moments,” she said.

The former Wimbledon and Roland-Garros champion said she is staying fit but would not be ready for tennis yet.

“My motivation is always very high, but in a world as competitive as high-level tennis, I hold on very strongly to the fact that if I don’t train, my opponents will and they will beat me because they will be more prepared.
