Marta Kostyuk rocks Wimbledon with shocking but honorable revelation

Marta Kostyuk, before the interview with the media in which she shared new revelations on the conflict in Ukraine, gave herself an unforgettable victory at Wimbledon 2023, against the Greek Maria Sakkari, comeback for 0-6, 7-5, 6-2 .

She is one of the tennis players who has been most exposed on the WTA circuit to defend the Ukrainians and send out signals about the war going on in her country. This time, it's not just the words in the press conference that have impressed the fans and enthusiasts.

In the press conference she revealed: "Tennis is my job, I want to try to be successful and fulfill myself. I sometimes think it's the most important thing in the world. Everything that has happened has helped me grow and made me still stronger."

Marta then added: "Since the invasion of Ukraine I have reconsidered many things.

I see them from a different point of view. Tennis is not the center of my life, it's just what I do for a living. I don't live what they go through. Thinking about who is going through the worst moments in life doesn't make me feel better about my problems, or the situation I'm facing at the moment.

What happened makes me realize that tennis isn't everything in my life. I was already asking myself questions before, I was wondering what else I could have done outside of tennis. The war made me realize that I could do many things.

I'm good at organizing. At first I didn't know much about how the world worked. Then when I started working with Wilson on the collections, I started to understand how design works and that made me realize that tennis isn't the only thing I know." On fans after their treatment in Paris: "That was questionable behavior on their part. I mean, they can do whatever they want but honestly I didn't get it."
