Social Slice: Berrettini, Muguruza, and more soak up the sun in Dubai
The Italian helped take over the desert with his clothing sponsor, BOSS.
Published Feb 12, 2022
Every week, dozens of tennis players from around the world post on their social media. From funny videos to training updates, there are simply too many accounts to keep track of. That's why we do the work for you by selecting the best posts from across the world of tennis.
Welcome to the Social Slice:
1. Matteo Berrettini
Berrettini landed in Dubai, and wasted no time checking out the sights. The Italian immediately headed into the desert where he "accidentally" stumbled across famous TikToker Khaby Lame.
So you may have already guessed, but Berrettini didn't just stumble across his friend/famous TikToker in the desert. The two were both on set for BOSS and shooting the latest Runaway Collection alongside top models. Afterwards, it turned into an extravagant event and a party for bosses only. It was quite the experience that will be cherished by the 25-year-old for years to come.
"I'll never forget today. Very grateful," Berrettini wrote on Instagram.
2. Garbine Muguruza
Muguruza is the type of person who is always doing cool things and showing it off on social media. This time, the world No. 6 is also in Dubai to hang out with a falcon, ride a camel and drive ATVs. You know, normal stuff. The Spaniard is hoping to defend her Dubai title after defeating Barbora Krejcikova in straight sets in the final last year.
3. Iga Swiatek
While other players are busy taking in the sights, Swiatek is wasting no time getting into her workouts, as expected of a Grand Slam champion. The 20-year-old shared a video of herself lifting weights, doing crunches, and doing an array of court drills. Are you trying to make us feel guilty for the workout we skipped Iga?
This will be Swiatek's second time vying for the Dubai trophy, she fell to eventual champion Muguruza in the round of 16 last year.
4. Aryna Sabalenka
It appears Sabalenka is ready to rumble in Dubai, but not before chowing down. The 23-year-old reached the quarterfinals twice in the desert, losing to Simona Halep and Muguruza in 2020 and 2021. However, it appears that Sabalenka is not letting the pressure affect her appetite.
5. Paula Badosa
The Spaniard enjoyed her delicious morning cup of coffee with a decadent view of Downtown Dubai on Friday. Wearing an all-black outfit from Nike, she gave a wink to the camera. This marks the first time the world No. 5 will compete at Dubai's 500-level event.
