5 Tennis Players You Didn’t Know Were Vegan

by Fabian Jackson

If you’ve been wondering what professional tennis and veganism have in common, the answer is quite a lot – health and fitness, the environment and athletic performance. 

Vegan world-class tennis players 

Our favourite international tennis icons who love a plant-based dinner as much as we do:

Novak Djokovic

The Men’s Wimbledon champion 2021, is a plant-based pro and says that vegan eating clears his mind. Read more about his diet and confidence here. 

Martina Navratilova

Winner of a whopping 18 Grand Slam titles and 31 major women’s doubles titles, Martina Navratilova is proud of how long her career was extended due to her plant-based diet, saying ‘I won a US Open Mixed Doubles title six weeks before my 50th birthday’ where most professional athletes retire in their early 30s. 

Venus Williams

Venus Williams went plant-based in 2011 after being diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, Sjögren's Syndrome, causing severe fatigue and joint pain and fatigue.

Venus is so invested in the plant-based game that she co-launched a vegan protein shake company, Happy Viking, last year.

Serena Williams

Serena would get along with a lot of our community as she’s mostly vegan adopting a strict plant-based diet during the season which is occasionally relaxed after tournaments are over.

Nick Kyrgios

During the 2020 Australian bushfires, Kyrgois rethought his diet after seeing so much wildlife destroyed. He was devastated to see so many animals harmed and according to PETA, the athlete worked hard to fundraise for the relief efforts. 

He’s even partnered with Beyond Meat!
