Even the best players in the world need time away from the tennis court, and Naomi Osaka, the WTA World No.3, has been relaxing in the off season.
The 22-year-old two-time Grand Slam champion will defend her Australian Open title in January, but for now she is taking time out to recharge her batteries.
The Japanese has been sure to enjoy the weather, hitting the beach on her time off.

In Spain, meanwhile, there have been wild celebrations after Rafael Nadal led the nation to success in the reformatted Davis Cup.
In front of a raucous crowd in Madrid, Nadal defeated Canada's Denis Shapovalov to seal the title after Roberto Bautista Agut had won an emotional opening rubber following the passing of his father days earlier.
It was a victory that caught the imagination of the country, with WTA stars past and present eager to show their admiration for what the Spanish team had achieved.
