 Brought to the point of hysterics: Sabalenka broke her racket after losing to Kalinina in Miami (video)

The star tennis player from the aggressor country once again could not contain her emotions.

The second racket of the world, Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, lost her composure with rage after defeat from Ukrainian Angelina Kalinina in the third round of the WTA 1000 tournament in Miami (USA).

The match ended with a sensational victory for our compatriot in three sets – 6:4, 1:6, 6:1.

After losing the last rally, the 25-year-old tennis player from the aggressor state could not cope with her emotions and broke in a rage his racket on the court.

The video of the Belarusian’s impulsive act went viral on social networks.

We would like to add that this is not the first time Sabalenka has distinguished herself with scandalous behavior on the court. Previously, she broke her racket after losing the final of the US Open 2023.

In addition, during the semifinals of the US Open 2023, the Belarusian also threw a tantrum – cursed and threw her racket strong> towards the stands where her coach was sitting.

The victory over Sabalenka became the highest rated in Kalinina’s career. For only the second time in her career, she beat a tennis player from the top 5 of the world ranking – the first such success was in 2022 over Maria Sakkari from Greece.

Kalinina (No. 36 WTA) will compete with a native of Moscow for reaching the quarterfinals Yulia Putintseva (No. 68 WTA), who has represented Kazakhstan since 2012.

Kalinina is the only Ukrainian who continues to compete in Miami. Earlier, Lesya Tsurenko, Elina Svitolina and Dayana Yastremskaya were eliminated from the tournament, and Marta Kostyuk withdrew before the opening match due to illness.
