Serena Williams was coming off a week to forget. Caroline Wozniacki was coming off a week that she won't ever be able to forget. Rather than do some totally understandable moping, the two tennis superstars teamed up for a weekend that should live on as a blueprint for anyone dealing with heartbreak or setback.
Opponents on seven occasions but united this time around, Williams and Wozniacki lived it up in Miami. Williams had just been bounced from the French Open by way of a straight-set upset in the second round. Wozniacki had suffered an upset defeat in her opening match at Roland Garros. That loss came just days after her engagement to golfer Rory McIlroy had been called off.
It had been a rough stretch on many different levels and the pair responded by hitting the beach and celebrating with the Miami Heat. One of them made an appearance in a DJ booth and the other crashed a wedding.
Below are some of the Twitter and Instagram posts from their epic weekend as well as some photographs captured by Getty Images:
