Williams wasn’t too far behind at being sarcastic as commented on Dimitrov’s post.

“Nope mine is better than yours,” replied Williams.

Clearly, Serena was referring to her partner Dimitrov and mentioned that he was a better hitting partner than herself. This makes it quite evident that the two really have fun not just on the court but off the court as well.

Surprisingly, it is not the first time since the two have hit the court together. Before this, the two trained together at the Australian Open 2019 and at the Rome Masters 2019 as well.

Fans still have huge expectations from both of them and want them to lift many titles this year. Will Williams and Dimitrov be able to win a major in 2021?
