for introducing her

for introducing her to tennis. “One day my dad was just driving me somewhere in the car and on the way he saw tennis courts So he took me to the courts I really liked it and enjoyed it and that’s how it was That’s how it started” she said Sabalenka’s Fed Cup heroics have made her a household name back in Belarus and she was quite surprised by the reception the team received in the capital city of Minsk which was the host venue for the final “We have two sports which are popular in Belarus–(Ice) hockey and tennis But after Fed Cup final I think tennis has become more popular” The Belarusians donned the red and green colours of their flag while playing the Fed Cup matches but it was Sabalenka’s green-streaked hair that became the talk of social media Aryna Sabalenka reacts after defeating Sloane Stephens in the Fed Cup The win was the biggest of her career so far Reuters However she revealed that the green hair colour was a complete co-incidence When asked if she had specifically got the green streaks done for Belarus’ maiden Fed Cup final appearance Sabalenka had a surprising tale to narrate “No it was blue I did it (coloured my hair) blue two months ago And then every time I washed it it started to change and it slowly faded And then I went for Fed Cup and it was green” she said with a chuckle Power game Sabalenka’s astonishing victory over then 13th-ranked Stephens was a perfect example of her aggressive all-or-nothing style of play The 6’-tall teenager loves to pound the ball from the baseline and her explosive groundshots make her one of the biggest hitters in the sport She also has a booming serve that she uses quite effectively to her advantage Sabalenka isn’t too shy of coming towards the net either and has an all-round game that should help her make her way to the top in the near future She has been playing under coach Khalil Ibrahimov for over a year and the duo spend hours on the court every day to improve the young Belarusian’s game ”We have cameras (while practice) so we watch my videos and try to find somethings to improve and we have a lot of training sessions “Before matches my coach watches my opponents’ videos and then he tells me what to do how to play against someone My coach does all of that” she explained When asked what shot in her arsenal is her strongest she replied: “I hope all my shots can be strong but my serve I feel is the best I have to keep improving every shot And I have to improve my movement on court That is important” Tennis love Her love and passion for tennis clearly shone through when she spoke about the sport In her candid chat Sabalenka’s hunger to improve and her desire for success stood out “I like the tennis life Being on the court is my favourite part Tennis life the way it is you have to grow up early This sport is such that you have to start early and learn from a young age to have as much experience (as possible)” she spoke with a maturity well beyond her age Maria Sharapova (R) and second-placed Aryna Sabalenka pose with their trophies after the women’s singles final match at the Tianjin Open AFP Just 19 Sabalenka like her young peers on the tour has quickly adapted to the grinding life on tour She enjoys the travel that the sport brings and has already played in various ITF events across the globe “I don’t have too much time (away from tennis) I like to watch cinema I like to walk around in Minsk the capital of Belarus And I like to spend time with my friends and family that’s very important for me Because you are at tournaments all the time you don’t see your family as much because of the travel” she said Eye on the future Now that she has broken into the top-75 of the world Sabalenka will receive direct entry into Grand Slams and other WTA events in the next season It will be interesting to see how she transitions from the ITF circuit to the WTA tour but going by her results so far the leap shouldn’t cause her too much trouble She seemed quite excited at the prospect of competing at the top level in 2018 but couldn’t pick one favourite tournament “Every tournament has something special so I can’t pick one If you win a tournament then that place is special Wimbledon is one that I would really like to win Maybe even Miami Open even though I have never been there I want to play there” she said Among the things she is looking forward to next year she spoke about playing on her favourite surface grass “This year I played for the first time on grass courts (during Wimbledon qualifying) And I really liked it I enjoyed my game on the grass courts the feeling of grass that’s nice I think my game is suited for grass and for hard courts” The Mumbai Open was her last tournament in 2017 and now she heads back home for a small break and will then resume training for the upcoming season She plans to start her 2018 season at Shenzhen in January and will then head to Hobart before the Australian Open Speaking about her goals for 2018 she said winning and not the numbers is her only focus “My goal is to be better in my game to be better in everything on which I work in training and on court My goal is not some ranking or points It’s all about winning to get better with every game every match” Talented determined and hard-working – Aryna Sabalenka is a name to remember Watch out for her in the future as she looks all set to
