Aryna Sabalenka finally won her maiden grand slam this year and famous tennis coach Rick Macci believes that more are coming in the future despite some question marks.
Sabalenka somewhat developed a reputation for failing in the biggest moments as she could never secure a grand slam trophy. The talent was always there but she would find herself struggling at the biggest event or stumbling a few steps short of the prize. She finally got it right this year winning the Australian Open and famous coach Rick Macci thinks that more are coming.
Some questioned whether Sabalenka will be able to keep up the high level and for the most part she has with Macci saying:
"Listen, power trumps everything. If you can keep it in, and let's face it, at the end of the day, in pro tennis, it's about how hard you can hit it and keep it in. I understand that you've got to chip it, dip it, flip it and all that stuff. You can sprinkle in that stuff. But I love how aggressive Aryna Sabalenka is. She attacks the ball. There's no fear. If she's mentally not there, she might be herself every now and then, but I can see her win multiple Grand Slams."
One reason why Macci thinks that is because of the power in her game. In the end, if she can hit the ball hard and keep it in the court than that will be enough. He's seen it with a former protege of his - Serena Williams:
"Aryna Sabalenka, you talk about her firepower, you talk about a authorotative tennis, okay? When she's confident, okay, she's confident, she takes the ball very early and everything's behind the ball. She's very decisive. You've got to beat her, okay? You can't really outhit her, okay? She has a lot of power even back in the day, when her serve went haywire to me, it was more mental."
