Even the most hard-working stars need to take a little time to relax and recharge. After reaching the semi-finals at the 2016 U.S. Open and then revealing her new collection during New York Fashion Week, tennis superstar Serena Williams indulged in some well-deserved time off—and looked hotter than ever in the process.

Williams took to Instagram over the weekend to document the rare getaway, revealing that time off is a rarity as the tennis season is year-round. “And the girl who never took a vacation took one day off … and then she came back,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a sexy photo of the bikini-clad star. In the ‘gram, Williams shows off her toned physique in a Brazilian-cut bottom, stretching her arms above her head as she relaxes by the pool.
