It was another busy day on and off court at the #TorontoFinals as the stars shared their thoughts on social media in between their all-important commitments on the sand. Americans Tri Bourne and John Hyden were the first men’s team to reach the quarterfinals and Tri was particularly happy to have secured top spot in the pool and a place in the last eight.

Won our pool!! #torontofinals . 🤑So we're sitting in the quarters with a day off tomorrow. 💪🏽...#sayiwont #bourneonthebeach @mizunovolley #mizuno #mauijims @officialmauijim @konared #teamusa @swatchmajorseries #swatchmajorseries

Reigning Swatch Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour Finals champions Larissa/Talita were also pumped to make it two wins out of two.

One of the results of the day was the victory for Gallay/Klug over Olympic champs Ludwig/Walkenhorst…you can sense the relief in this post…the Argentinians had lost all of the last six matches against the Germans!

Alegría después de este triunfo. Contentas de haberles ganado a las últimas Campeonas Olimpicas. #BancoNación #UPCNentrerios #Purisima #energizanteV @oakleyarg @sgweber @gopro

Kira and Laura lost both games on Thursday. We’re not sure why but we’re pretty sure they’re still better at beach volleyball than soccer – as they showed earlier this week in this hilarious video!

Was macht man an einem freien Turniertag...natürlich trainieren und einem Kamerateam zeigen was man so drauf hat...oooops😂

Meanwhile Canadian Brandie Wilkerson is enjoying life alongside Heather Bansley. And she was more than happy to show the world her comfy socks on Instagram while watching the action on Center Court.

Another Canadian team in action on Friday will be aiming to get back to winning ways – Jamie Broder says she and teammate Kristina Valjas will be hoping for better when they play tomorrow.

Lost in 3 today vs Spain after a big lead in the 3rd set 😩 Will take the good serving into tomorrow, and improve the sideout 💪#torontofinals

Annnnnnnd finally. It’s a tweet that made us chuckle and we love the simplicity of it. Polish pair Kantor/Losiak swept Lucena/Dalhausser away in a superb straight sets performance and responded on Twitter with an apology! The more we look at it the more we laugh. Love it boys!
