The World No. 1 made it to the finals of the last Grand Slam of the year in New York earlier this month. Along the way, she ousted the likes of Qinwen Zheng, Daria Kasatkina, and Madison Keys to set up a clash with Coco Gauff in the final.
Although the Belarusian had to ultimately settle for second place, she got a pretty sweet consolation prize by becoming the top-ranked player on the WTA Tour. This came after Swiatek, who was No. 1 in the WTA Ranking for 75 weeks, crashed out of the Slam in the fourth round.
“It comes from her grandmother. Her grandmother was the first Black child to go to an all-white school in Delray”: Billie Jean King shared Coco Gauff's family story.
Sabalenka unwinds in New York
Following the adrenaline-filled Slam, Sabalenka has been unwinding in New York and recently attended the Altuzarra fashion show on September 20, which took place at the New York Public Library as part of the city's Fashion Week.
The 25-year-old wore an Altuzarra ‘Ness’ sweater with a metal buckle strap over one shoulder, along with a Louis Vuitton belt and white trousers. Afterward, she shared her praise of the 'beautiful' show and said that she hoped to be back next year.
"It was an amazing way to end my month in New York and kick off my first fashion week! The @altuzarra show was so beautiful. Can’t wait to be back next year!" she wrote on Instagram.
Swiatek: I don't like playing with Ostapenko. There are simply some players who are uncomfortable to play with

The Australian Open champion also traveled to London earlier this month for Vogue World: London 2023 on September 14. Sabalenka showed off her fashionable side at this event, wearing a 16Arlington sleeveless bodycon silver dress.
