On Friday night, Citi Taste of Tennis held its first-ever Melbourne party with a few power couples stealing the spotlight. 

Citi Taste of Tennis combines tennis pros and master chefs for a night of fun ahead of big tournaments on the calendar including Indian Wells, Miami, Washington and the US Open.

Venus Williams, Pat Cash, Borna Coric, Gael Monfils, Elina Svitolina, Matteo Berrettini, Ajla Tomljanovic, Miomir Kecmanovic and more helped kick off the first Slam of the year with great food, and even better company. 

The Melbourne event was held at the Plaza Ballroom. 

Venus is a regular at Citi Taste of Tennis parties, always taking over the stage for a live cooking session. 

Coric helped out with the plate serving. 

G.E.M.S. Life's Monfils and Svitolina are also regulars at Taste parties. 

But they weren't the only tennis couple having a night out as Berrettini was joined by Tomljanovic. Melbourne will be Berrettini's first match since the ATP Finals in London. 

Tomljanovic previously dated Nick Kyrgios. It's her first red-carpet appearance together with Berrettini, but they've been linked (at least publicly) since October when she joined him at the ATP 500 in Vienna. 

The next Citi Taste of Tennis will be held in Indian Wells on March 9.
