Growing up, Marija went through karate, table tennis, handball, as well as swimming. And by the time she was in her youth, Marija had turned into a well-rounded athlete excelling in almost all of her athletic pursuits.
About Tennis, she was six years old when her uncle suggested to her mom that she try it. So, Marija started first through those mini-classes, and then she was 12 when she started playing tournaments. At 15, she earned her first officiating certification to work at national events.
By the time she was 18, Marija decided to quit playing tennis to go to university. At that point, she just wanted to focus on other things rather than play tennis.
“I wanted to just go to school and enjoy officiating.”
Thus Marija pursued a degree in kinesiology and all along continued to officiate as a hobby and stayed active by playing different sports.
For a good two or three years, Marija was a tennis coach for kids who were under-10, under-12. At the same time, she was doing Futures in the chair and was a line umpire at tour-level events and ATP Challengers. At this point, she really felt the need to decide what she really wanted to do and just go one way to stay with tennis. Of course, she chose to go with officiating.
