The pre-season training camp brought together professional athletes, including Williams and US tennis rising star Coco Gauff, along with US show business figures.

I wanted to renew with the tradition of organising a team-building camp to prepare for the Australian Open,” Mouratoglou said.

Along with Serena, we brought in a new, crazy-talented generation of players, and even some DJs and fitness gurus.”
