Aryna Sabalenka had a pretty funny reaction to a video compilating rough and challenging conditions that players have experienced at the WTA Finals in Cancun. Over the last couple of days, play in Cancun has been interrupted several times due to rain.

Also, a strong wind has been causing major issues for players. On Saturday, Sabalenka started her WTA Finals semifinal match against Iga Swiatek. With Swiatek leading 2-1, the match was interrupted by rain. Sabalenka and Swiatek are scheduled to resume their match today.

Reacting to the video, Sabalenka said: "I’m dying laughing or maybe crying."

Sabalenka previously said that she felt 'unsafe' on the court in Cancun

After playing her first match in Cancun, Sabalenka said she felt "unsafe" out on the court and also described the court conditions in Cancun as "another disrespect by the WTA." Later, other players also joined in on criticizing the WTA and the court in conditions in Cancun.

This week, the letter that WTA CEO Steve Simon sent to WTA Finals participants was revealed. "Many thanks to those of you who were able to join our meeting here in Cancun. We do welcome your engagement and hope that it will continue.

As we were not able to get into some of the areas, we felt it important to share with you the following: First and foremost, it is clear that you are not happy with the decision to be here in Cancun. I understand that and you have been heard.

As I have reflected to you, this is not where we expected to be and the decision for this location was based upon a number of complicated factors. It is not a perfect event, we understand the conditions are a challenge and the WTA will of course accepts responsibility for that.

I am appreciative that you have reflected in the media your recognition of the significant support from Cancun and all of the people that are working so hard to put on this event. I wish you the best of luck for remainder of the event and, as always, we are here to provide you any support and assistance that we can as you all deserve the best," WTA CEO Simon said in his letter to the players, as revealed by Jon Wertheim.
