Kostyuk was recently featured on The AO Show podcast and talked about her horrific near-death experience during her honeymoon. “I tried surfing in Maldives where we had our honeymoon there and I almost died but really I almost died, yeah the waves were bigger than we thought, they were probably like five times bigger than in LA,” she revealed.
Getting further into the details, Kostuk said that it was their second time in Maldives but even that could not help her much, “In Maldives there, there are rocks where the waves break in the rocks and I couldn’t get out of it so I was hit by a wave twice like I was right in this curve and yeah I was out of breath so I almost died.”
Showing championship mettle off the court, Kostyuk went in again to conquer her fear, “Uh so then the next day we are surfing and of course and I tried again and I managed to get up but it’s very, I think it’s very dangerous so you have to pick like times and days where you can do it.”
Kostyuk and her husband Heorhii were last seen in the Australian Open where the Ukrainian player and her husband were seen involved in some public display of affection following a weather delay.
