Aryna Sabalenka "will do everything to keep winning"

Aryna Sabalenka is probably one of the players with the best form on the WTA Tour at the moment.

The young Belorussian ended the 2020 season in a great style when she won 2 trophies. She entered the 2021 in a similar style when she triumphed at the WTA 500 tournament in Abu Dhabi after she defeated Veronika Kudermetova in the final. It remains a question if Sabalenka can stop losing, because at the moment it seems like she's unbeatable.

"I was doing everything I could in each match from the beginning, and I’m really happy to start this season with a title," Sabalenka told the media during her post-match press conference.

"Every final is really something special, and I would say, finals are a different competition," the Belarusian stated. "This final was really nice, and I would say a really fast game."

"I’m really happy to keep winning, and I’ll do everything I can to keep winning!" Sabalenka laughed. "Nobody likes to lose!"

"In the first two games of her serve, I was trying to see what she was doing on her serve," Sabalenka explained, having converted six of her 12 break points during the match. "Then, I don’t know, I just felt where she was serving, and I was just following my feelings, and it worked really well. I also put a lot of pressure on her in my service games."

"I’m really proud that I was fighting no matter what," said Sabalenka. "Some matches, I didn’t feel my serve, some matches I didn’t feel my forehand or backhand, but I would just keep fighting, finding my shots, and that this is what I’m really proud of, and really happy with this title."
