Aryna Sabalenka in triumph

Aryna Sabalenka è still the queen of the Australian Open. In Rod Laver Arena, the woman in red dominated the final, winning her second Slam trophy and becoming the first tennis player to win the tournament two years in a row in Melbourne since compatriot Azarenka in 2012-2013.

The world number 2 and second seeded favorite overwhelmed China&#39s Qinwen Zheng, defeated by a score of 6-3, 6-2 in one hour and sixteen minutes of play. The Belarusian thus completed the tournament without losing a single set, but in the WTA rankings she remains in second place, behind Poland’s Swiatek.

The match è was characterized by an early domination of the Sabalenka, with a clear lead in the first set, followed by an impressive performance in the second, where she won the title with confidence, despite wasting on the most beautiful four match points.
