Earlier this year, former Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki shared that she received meaningful support and advice from Lindsey Vonn, a three-time Olympic medalist. The unlikely bond between the German tennis player and the American skier was forged after both were forced to overcome serious knee injuries.

Lindsey Vonn was a very important and inspiring person. We didn't know each other personally before, but she got in touch with me when I broke everything in my knee that can be broken. She had a very serious knee injury herself, and when you have someone like that and you can ask for advice, that's a great support. Sabine Lisicki


Vonn's connection to the tennis world hasn't stopped there. On Sunday, Top 10 player—and noted skier—Jannik Sinner revealed that the shared the slopes with the 37-year-old.

The bond between these two was forged not by injury, but by their shared sponsor, Rolex.

"What does excellence mean to you?" Sinner asks his ski-mate. "You always have to evolve," Vonn responds. "Every day is a new opportunity. You can have the world if you can juggle it all."


Ranked 12th on tour, and 14th in the Race to Turin, Sinner will need a final push in order to qualify for the season-ending championships being contested in his own country.
