Aryna Sabalenka has rewritten her own season. The Belarusian tennis player reached the final at the WTA Finals, beating world number one Iga Swiatek in the semifinals. In the Women's Master final, Aryna was defeated by Franchwoman Caroline Garcia.
Sabalenka told, after beating Swiatek: "After the second set I went to the locker room for a few minutes and came back with very clear ideas: I had to be more aggressive and I always had to be focused. Nothing else, that's all, after all.
This mentality ended up helping me a lot tonight. I confess that there have been moments where I came up with some flashbacks from the past, this season, games where I started well and ended up losing."

After the defeat to Caroline Garcia at the WTA Finals, she said: "There are a lot of elements to be proud of. I am happy with how I served and I know this will help me to be calmer during the off season and during the next season.
I know. that the serve is no longer a problem after the work we have done. I can commit a few double faults, of course, but I also know that I can always aces and that I have a lot of weapons available in my game, in return and also from the baseline."
Sabalenka also took stock of what this year has been like: "I am proud of my season, of my team, who have supported me a lot. I am also super proud to have been strong in a difficult time and to have continued to fight," she told the Belarusian to the Tennis Channel after winning the last group match against Jessica Pegula.
In this very interview, the last question is about a celebrity with whom she would like to play a tennis match. She is uncertain about giving an answer: "I'm not sure, I don't know, help me," in the end Sabalenka opts for a colleague of hers: Novak Djokovic: "I would like to play a mixed doubles with Djokovic."
The Belarusian tennis player has meanwhile shared a new photo on Instagram, where she is wearing a green bathing suit that will leave her fans speechless:
