The WTA stars travel to tournaments chasing after trophies like these Abierto Monterrey ones.
And all those hours on the practice courts and in the gym are the foundation of their success...
As well as making sure they've got the right equipment, gear, tape - everything has to be perfect.
But even if they don't leave with the trophy, they're scoring a lot of less obvious victories.
Jovana Jaksic didn't take home the trophy but she gave the fans something else to take home.
From rising stars like American Nicole Gibbs...
To doubles specialists like Megan Moulton-Levy...
And established stars like Karolina Pliskova, they're making it more than just tennis for the fans.
Autograph sessions, meet and greets, photo opportunities - the WTA stars keep very busy off the court.
Jaksic has been one of the most popular players at the Abierto Monterrey the last two years.
This year it was Ana Ivanovic who came out on top, beating Jaksic in the final on Sunday night.
But there were also thousands of fans who left as winners. Hasta el próximo año, Monterrey!
