We all know without any shadow of doubt that Aryna Sabalenka is no less than a superhero in Tennis. She recently won her second big tournament in a row at the Australian Open. With her miraculous skills and tough drive, Aryna Sabalenka is fated to carve out a long-lasting legacy in the history of tennis.

Playing a game where you not only have to be good at the initial stage but also stay ahead the whole time. Aryna Sabalenka did exactly that in the Australian Open women's singles final. She was against Zheng Qinwen from China and proved to everyone that she's the strongest player right now.
Right before the final, Aryna had an enthralling streak. In her previous 13 matches which took place in Melbourne, where the tournament happens, she only lost one round. That's 26 sets won out of 27! And she wasn’t done here. She won again, beating Zheng 6-3, 6-2 to get her another second big trophy.
Aryna did something really exceptional – she didn't lose even a single set in the entire tournament. This hasn't happened often, and she additionally joined a group of women who did it before in the Australian Open. Sabalenka didn't let Zheng shatter her serve even once – that's somehow like not letting the other player steal points from her. Aryna then took a swift lead, and hence, Zheng couldn't catch up. Zheng desired to be the first champion from China since 2014, but Aryna was just too fine.
Although Zheng hit more winners, Aryna's high-powered shots made the difference. Aryna rescued all the times Zheng attempted to break her serve, and she won the match in precisely 76 minutes. All through the tournament, Aryna was a legend. In most of her matches, she didn't lose more than three games in a set. On average, she lost fewer than five games per match.

But this triumph is not just about one tournament. Aryna has been doing considerably well for a couple of years now. She missed one tournament in 2022 but then she also made it to at least the semi-finals in the last six big tournaments. She back breakingly worked hard to improvise her game, especially after a dejected loss in the US Open final. Aryna also wanted to showcase it to everyone that she's not just a one-time winner. And she proved it at the Australian Open.
Aryna then became number one in the rankings last September, and by this time, she's getting close once again. She's great on different types of courts, and it seems like she's going to do even better in the future. After her victory, Aryna mentioned, “I just wanted to show that I'm able to be consistently there and I'm able to win another one." She is convinced in always working diligently and showing up, no matter if you win or you lose.
