SINGAPORE - Over the weekend, many of the tennis stars who are in town for this week's WTA Finals managed to find time to relax, dine and do some sight-seeing despite their hectic schedule. Some were spotted on Saturday at the Marina Bay Sands Shoppes Ice skating rink for the WTA Finals Official Singles Draw Ceremony. Others attended tennis clinics and other WTA-related events.
Many of the tennis stars shared pictures of them unwinding with other players on their social media accounts. Here's a selection of some of the best photos.
Top seed and 18-time Grand Slam singles winner Serena Williams posted a shot of her and Caroline Wozniacki having dinner. We're not exactly sure where they were dining at but you can see a section of Gardens By The Bay in the background.
Friend indeed. @carowozniacki
One of the more popular spots among the players is the infinity pool at the top of Marina Bay Sands. Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard joined a long list of celebrities who had their photos taken at the pool.
Good night everyone. After a long and busy day it's time for me to get ready for bed #singapore #wtafinals

Others like Maria Sharapova, and rising stars Shelby Rogers and Zheng Saisai managed to also spend some time in and around the Marina Bay area.
It's not every day you get to walk on a bridge like this. #architecture #modern #design
