Rather than sitting at home feeling sorry for themselves, both Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have opted to party away in Miami following their early French Open exits.

Defending Roland Garros champion Serena, one of tennis' most successful females, had her campaign ended unexpectedly in round two by Spanish underdog Gabrine Muguruza.

Meanwhile Wozniacki fell at the first hurdle against Yanina Wickmayer. For the Danish star, who won the US Open in 2009, it marked a double blow after her recent high-profile break-up with Rory McIlroy.

The Northern Irish golfer terminated the pair's near six-month-log engagement shortly after sending out the invites. 

Nevertheless, while the likes of Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep head towards glory on the clay, the respective disappointments for Williams and Wozniacki provided the opportunity for them to let their hair down.

After attending the NBA match between Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers on Friday, the pair spent time on the beach and posed for photos in their bikinis which would later be uploaded onto their social media accounts.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion Williams even took the chance to gatecrash a wedding that was taking place on the beach. She uploaded a 'selfie' with the caption: 'Bikini wedding crasher!' 

Wozniacki uploaded another snap as she took the chance to try her arm at being a DJ on a night out.

It is clear that Williams is trying her best to cheer up the 23-year-old who claimed the fall-out from her split with McIlroy had been tough as she departed Paris.

The two friends will have hopefully had a relaxing break before attentions must turn to Wimbledon soon. This is a busy time on the tennis circuit with back-to-back majors.

Serena, along with her sister Venus, has established herself among the greatest ever players on the grass Grand Slam and remains the world's highest ranked women. 

The 32-year-old has won five titles in London, the same amount as her sister. In fact, since 2000, there have only been four years in which somebody outside the family have won at SW19. Furthermore, the duo have won five doubles titles together.

Wozniacki, by contrast, has never passed round four. It will be something that the former world no.1 will be looking to change this time around.  

Marion Bartoli is the holder, but the Frenchwomen will not be in contention to defend her title after retiring.

The action begins at the end of this month.
