Jana Novotna, Tatiana Golovin, Kveta Peschke and Anna-Lena Groenefeld had some fun Wednesday.
The four WTA stars - two former, two current - headed over to a nearby island to hit some balls.
The players took to a series of mini-tennis courts that were set up on the nearby island in Doha.
Peschke and Groenefeld are the No.6 seeds in this week's doubles draw and had the day off.
Golovin is a former World No.12 who has been out of action since 2008 due to a back injury.
Groenefeld is also a former Top 20 player but is currently specializing only on doubles.
Novotna had a legendary career in both disciplines, reaching No.2 in singles and No.1 in doubles.
Players, staff, kids and the wide range of mascots all posed for a group photo after the event.
