Aryna Sabalenka asked fans before the US Open final
Sabalenka knows that the fans gathered in the stands at the US Open final will primarily support her opponent. – Of course, I would prefer to have someone else in the final, because then the crowd will be a little the same for both players, she said smiling at the press conference.
The 25-year-old tennis player said with a pinch of salt that she hoped someone would support her against the American. -I still hope some of them will support me. At least a little. Just sometimes, please. Please, the Belarusian said with a laugh during a meeting with journalists.

The Belarusian was hoping that she would face Iga Svetek in the US Open final and that it would be the result of the WTA leader’s decision. However, the Pole exited the tournament in the fourth round, thus ensuring Sabalenka’s rise in the rankings a few days ago.
