The tennis season might be coming to a close, but the players are still going strong on social media. While some have already begun offseason training, others are taking the time to relax, unwind and enjoy some well-deserved time off.

Genie Bouchard showed off her impressive soccer skills earlier this week as she took part in a charity beach soccer match. Not only was her team clearly the best dressed, she was also named the tournament MVP.

Congrats Genie!

Who knows… maybe she has a second career as a soccer player.

The Montreal Impact certainly think so; they are already in the process of trying to recruit her.

Stay away, she’s ours!

Another player enjoying the offseason is Dominika Cibulkova. She traded her tennis training for acting lessons, as she is set to make an appearance in the upcoming movie about her good friend Li Na.

Despite their long lasting friendship, Cibulkova is rather pleased to no longer have to face Na on tour, seeing as she was always on the losing end of their match-ups. #0-7

After taking home his maiden ATP Finals title, Sascha Zverev celebrated with none other than his best friend… his puppy (ADORABLE).

It seems that Lövik keeps the young rising star company when he’s travelling around the world. Sascha’s furry friend even made an appearance in Montreal at last year’s Rogers Cup.


From puppy love to pizza parties, Denis Shapovalov was in Toronto earlier this week for a charity exhibition match and made a guest appearance at the Ontario Regional Qualifying event for next year’s Canadian University Championships.

Come for the tennis, stay for the pizza!

Who are we kidding come for the pizza, stay for the pizza!

Since the start of the year, the race to World No. 1 in the ATP has been thrilling to follow. Almost as thrilling as reliving the race as a videogame.

But seriously, can someone please add these characters to the next edition of Mario Kart?
