Rebel Wilson returns to Australia, pursuing his passion for tennis at the Sydney Tennis Classic

Rebel Wilson was back in familiar surroundings on Monday, when she attended a tennis tournament in her hometown of Sydney.

Just a day after a stunning Instagram post flaunting her stunning 35kg weight loss in tight sportswear, the 41-year-old was seen back in her jeans – watching young rising Australian tennis star Jordan Thompson give a spanking to American Marcos Giron 6-4 6-2.

And it could have been a day for the actress, with her alleged boyfriend Matt Reid in doubles action later today.

Wilson was seen with not only her Gucci handbag, but also a backpack belonging to a young companion, believed to be her niece.

Wilson’s love affair with tennis is not an overnight adventure, with the actress seriously considering a career in the sport as a youngster.

She is often photographed at tournaments across the world and was spotted in August having lunch alongside tennis legend John McEnroe in Italy.

And it’s fair to say that Wilson might have a sympathetic outlook on the fate of world number one Novak Djokovic, whose fight to stay in Australia and play the Australian Open continues to make headlines around the world.

In another August post, Wilson recalled her “most unhealthy days” in a photo with the Serbian champion, whom she described as “such a nice guy”.

Despite much of the world struggling with a pandemic, Wilson apparently had a blast in 2021 – doing quite a bit of yachting, filming a movie, and biting a rope.
