Maria Sharapova found a good way to recover as she set off for a Mediterranean vacation on the coast of Italy. 

Maria retired from her first-round match at Wimbledon with a left wrist injury while trailing 5-0 in the third set.

Now she’s enjoying some recovery time. 

The tennis star was seen lounging sea side in a red string bikini on Wednesday.

Healing is what she needed:

‘I’ve had a history of a tendon in my left forearm flaring up,’ Sharapova said. ‘It happened today in the second set. I probably couldn’t have gotten through the whole final set, but I did my best’ 

This year’s Wimbledon was only Sharapova’s second tournament since January following shoulder surgery. She lost in the second round in Mallorca last month.

She needs to get back to playing more tennis, although less tennis means more vacations, which we can not complain about.
