Until recently, lockdown measures have meant that for tennis players not only can they not play competitively but they cannot practice but for the likes of Elina Svitolina, Elise Mertens and Iga Swiatek this luxury has returned.
TennisUpToDate looks at some of the social media highlights from the past week; in terms of the WTA Tour.
While in the case of Svitolina, the pain was there; all three were glad to be back out on court; after the suspension of the tour has left many out of action for months.
Didn’t miss the pain pretty much everywhere 😅, BUT did missed the feeling of hitting the ball 💥 pic.twitter.com/XQdlgB0qLy

🌦Dobrze zmienić otoczenie po prawie dwóch miesiącach w Warszawie. I dobrze zagrać trening w deszczu jak za dawnych czasów.
🌦Changing perspectives in #gdynia after almost two months at home. Also, missed playing in the rain like I used to in the old days#givesyouwings pic.twitter.com/TytLIFNJN1

While for many they have returned to their local courts; for Kristina Mladenovic, Chloe Paquet and Amandine Hesse; they returned to Roland Garros.
While for Daria Kasatkina and Garbine Muguruza; they have had to improvise with the latter back in the gym.
