Friday was another warm-up day at the Brisbane International, as players are getting ready for the tournament’s start on January 6th. Our photographer Jimmie48 attended a lot of practice sessions highlighted by new coaching partnerships.
Naomi Osaka was spotted on the court with Wim Fissette, Dayana Yastremska was with Sascha Bajin, Angelique Kerber was training with newly-appointed coach Dieter Kindlmann, and Karolina Pliskova was getting ready with a relatively new member of her team, Olga Savchuk.
Moreover, Karolina Pliskova and Donna Vekic enjoyed a fun joint practice, preparing for their doubles partnership at the Brisbane International. We also have Friday’s practice photos of Maria Sharapova, Johanna Konta, Kiki Bertens, and Ajla Tomljanovic.
When it comes to off-court activities, Tomljanovic met the ball kids, Vekic was signing autographs and Samantha Stosur talked to the media about her decision to donate towards the bushfire relief this week.
