Sabine Lisicki went from player to coach at a Porsche Tennis Grand Prix kids clinic this week.
With the help of Turkish Airlines, 11 kids got the chance to practice and train with the German.
They started with the warm-up - some laps, some footwork drills and even a few balancing exercises.
Then came the hitting, which Lisicki is perhaps best known for - one of the biggest hitters out there.
Lisicki is Germany's only Grand Slam finalist of the millennium, reaching the 2013 Wimbledon final.
Last summer the German set the all-time women's serve speed record in Stanford, hitting one at 131mph.
She's coming off a phenomenal run in America, the semifinals of Indian Wells and quarters of Miami.
Representatives from Turkish Airlines stopped by to pose with Lisicki and the kids at the clinic.
