Elena Rybakina blasted 24 aces in her win over Jelena Ostapenko and she was supper happy about it proclaiming it, just the start and not the peak.
Rybakina is already a grand slam champion as she won Wimbledon last year but she hasn't had much respect for brands or the tennis community itself. Rybakina opened her campaign at the Australian by playing on Court 13, something that didn't bother her that much but certainly nothing she would boast about.
Speaking after her most recent win, Rybakina admitted that this is just the start and she's going to achieve more in the future:

“I mean, I would say that of course, I could get more support but I think now at this stage of my career, it's kind of not the beginning. But I still think that it's not the peak of my career, and I think that I still have a lot of years in front. I think everything is in the future, and we will just see how it's gonna be.”
She also touched upon the match admitting she was supper happy about the win:
“I’m super happy to be in the semi-finals for the first time. Of course, I was nervous, especially in the last game. I’m super happy I managed the emotions and I played really well today."
