After posing for a few pictures with her friends, Edwards shared candid shots of herself hitting a few balls.

She also picked up a few tips from the former Australian Open champ as Barty, 26, told her to ‘always hit the ball long’.

‘Out and long is better than hitting the net,’ Edwards captioned one of her photos.

Edwards appeared to be in good spirits after she was dragged into the public stoush between her ex Michael Clarke and his girlfriend Jade Yarbrough which involved Karl Stefanovic and his wife Jasmine.

Extraordinary footage emerged last Wednesday of a heated exchange between Clarke and Yarbrough while they were on holiday in Noosa, Queensland.

In the video, which was filmed by an onlooker on January 10 and sold to The Daily Telegraph for a reported $10,000, Yarbrough accused the former Test captain of cheating on her with his former flame Edwards on December 17.

Others in the group, including Stefanovic, his wife Jasmine – Yarbrough’s older sister – and celebrity accountant Anthony Bell, tried to defuse the fracas.

Yarbrough and Clarke, who was limping in the footage after hurting his hamstring, have since been slapped with ‘public nuisance’ fines.

Stefanovic is yet to make a statement on the matter, but was asked about the footage during an event at the Australian Open last Thursday.

According to the Herald Sun, he smiled when asked if he wanted to comment but refused to say anything.

‘You know what the answer is going to be,’ he replied.

A remorseful Clarke has since taken full responsibility for what happened.
