Wozniacki announced in late July that she will run the New York marathon on Nov. 2 for the New York Road Runner Team for Kids charity.

She is blazing a trail, USA TODAY Sports reports. “As far as we know she’s the first professional athlete in season that is training for a marathon,” says Chris Weiller, vice president of media and public relations of the New York Road Runners.

She even said marathon training helps her tennis. Wozniacki says: “It’s hard work. I run a lot already in my training, so to put those extra miles in, I think it helps my head. I feel more free when I go on court.”

Sharapova commented to USA TODAY saying: “I know if I was getting ready for a marathon it wouldn’t help me, but everyone is different.”

As for her goal time? She’s not saying.
