Serena Williams and Grigor Dimitrov were recorded practicing together in videos shared to their respective Instagram accounts.

Dimitrov shared footage that saw him exchanging shots with Williams in an outdoor court. The formidable tennis player bragged in his captions about how "good" his training partner is.

The video Williams posted via her page caught her returning one of Dimitrov's shots with what she referred to as a "casual hit." Casual as it was, it had her opponent straining to return it.

Fans in the comment section went wild over the short footage. They praised both athletes for their skills, and after seeing how good their rhythm was, one fan said she "sees a great Mixed Doubles partnership."

There were also some raised eyebrows from fans who recalled Dimitrov and Williams' past relationship. The pair allegedly dated at some point, and it has been revealed that Dimitrov and Williams had a feud that involved Maria Sharapova.

Sharapova claimed in a book she wrote that Dimitrov, who is four years younger, approached her when he was 21. She thought him "barely legal" but gave him her mail.

The defeat and Williams' response to it gave birth to speculations of her saying farewell to tennis.

The emails turned to text messages, and those became phone calls which gradually evolved into Skype sessions and eventually a relationship which they publicly announced in 2013.

The relationship ended two years later, but it remained volatile fuel that powered the beef between Sharapova and Williams. Both women may have moved on from Dimitrov, but they might never get on with each other.

Williams is now happily married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and they both have a child named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., born on September 1, 2017.

The talented sportswoman is currently in pursuit of her 24th grand slam title. She powered through the preliminary stages of the Australian Open but suffered defeat at Naomi Osaka's hands.

The defeat and Williams' response to it gave birth to speculations of her saying farewell to tennis. Still, the icon's coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, has revealed that she will not give up until she wins more grand slams.

A 24th grand slam title would put Williams on par with Margaret Court's lifetime achievement of 24 grand slam titles in the sport. Fans hope she can make this happen— she deserves it.
