While there were fun and frolics on and off the court in the Spanish capital at the weekend, other players posted updates from across the tennis world.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova made a splash over the weekend, jumping into a swimming pool to celebrate her 10th career title in Rabat.

Two American players in Madrid took the opportunity to explore Spanish culture - Bethanie Mattek-Sands took flamenco lessons, while Julia Boserup explored the pretty back streets.

And on court in Madrid, Caroline Wozniacki and Maria Sharapova showed that fighting your way to a tough win never gets old.

After her first-round victory, Timea Bacsinszky met up with Lara Gut, her compatriot and alpine ski champion.

Elsewhere, Ajla Tomljanovic celebrated her 24th birthday with some time on the practice court.

Meanwhile, Heather Watson enjoyed some sun and sea in Nice.

Francesca Schiavone has revived her career in the past month and her Rabat runner-up plate was another reminder of her deep love for the sport.

The sport isn't just about enjoying the career peaks, though, as Yanina Wickmayer and Alla Kudryavtseva reminded us with their inspiring Instagram posts about mounting comebacks.

And who knows this better than Victoria Duval, back on court and in the gym after her battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Just what the doctor ordered ????‍♀️???
