Timea Babos' Christmas present came early this year. The doubles champion was gifted a fly board adventure from her friend Drouet Thomas and honestly, it may have been a present for all of her 167,000 followers.

Kristina Mladenovic, Priscilla Hon and other players and fans filled the Hungarian's comment section with laughing faces.


Babos posted a video of her first five minutes on the fly board earlier this week and she struggled to maintain her balance, which meant a lot of falling and tipping over. But, Babos is a world class athlete, so she got the hang of it pretty quickly.

The 27-year-old posted a follow-up video of her hovering up in the air for a lengthy period of time to prove to her fans she's not so bad.

It seems Babos is living her best off-season life in Dubai and is spending a lot of time in the water. When she's not fly boarding, she's soaking up the sun and jet-skiing.


But, make no mistake, the four-time Grand Slam doubles champion is also hard at work and preparing for the 2021 season.


"Work hard, struggle, experience success, repeat," Babos wrote on Instagram

Out of the three major events that were played in 2020, Babos and her partner Mladenovic managed to claim two of them (the Australian Open and Roland Garros).
