FORMER Wimbledon junior champion Sofya Zhuk is offering a different type of “net service” – on OnlyFans.
The Russian, 23, has added appearing on the lucrative adult subscription website to her new life renting out yachts and luxury cars in Miami.
Sofya Zhuk is a social media hit three years after quitting tennis, having won the junior girls’ title at Wimbledon in 2015
The Russian earned around £325,000 from her injury-hit tennis career
Sofya last played tennis competitively in the first round of Wimbledon, qualifying in 2019 before retiring a year later
Injuries meant Zhuk always played in pain until she quit tennis in 2020.
But although she is buoyed up to join the often X-rated OnlyFans, she insisted she will never go fully nude.
Instead she will be posing in bikinis or cocktail dresses, like on Instagram.
But Sofya promised: “Guys, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! There will be a lot of interesting material.”
She must have been predicting success on court rather than online when she won the girls’ singles when unseeded at SW19 in 2015.
Sofya reached a career-high of 116th three years later.
But in 2020 she called a halt to playing, initially in the hope she could shake off back problems at some time in the future.
That dream, however, now appears in the past.
She told German newspaper Bild: “My body needed rest. I was in so much trouble that even the doctors wouldn’t treat me.
“I don’t normally digest protein, so the discs in my vertebrae behave like those of a 60-year-old.”
Sofya added: “I’ve always played in terrible pain, I loved tennis but I had to think about my health.”
But it seems she’s also thinking about her army of fans – by adding OnlyFans to her online repertoire.
Her on-court career might be behind her but Sofya is baring up well
