World number two Aryna Sabalenka has mimicked America’s Danielle Collins during their meeting in the Madrid Open. The Belarusian tennis star registered an impressive win as she came back from a set down to secure her place in the quarterfinal after securing a win with a score of 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. During the ninth game of the first set, Collins, while trying to save a break point, produced an ace and shouted ‘come on’. On the next point, the two-time Grand Slam returned the favour and shouted ‘come on’ mimicking the 30-year-old.
After the match, Sabalenka admitted that it was a ‘tough battle’ but thanked the fans sitting in the arena for giving her the support she needed throughout the competition. “It was a tough battle,” she said. “She played unbelievable tennis. Thank you guys for staying and supporting us. That’s why I really love Madrid. You guys are unbelievable. You make this tournament special. Thank you so much for all the support and an incredible atmosphere.”
Sabalenka, who had a brilliant start to the 2024 season where she lifted the Australian Open for the second time, will now face Russia’s young sensation Mirra Andreeva in the quarterfinal of the mega-event on Wednesday.
