After Victoria Azarenka, there were eyebrows raised over the potential future of Belarusian tennis. However, the roaring lioness from Minsk - Aryna Sabalenka has stepped up, and how! After turning pro in 2015, she has worked her way to the top of the WTA.

The Belarusian started the season on top note by winning her second Grand Slam singles title at the 2024 Australian Open. Sabalenka, the defending champion, defeated first-time finalist from China Qinwen Zheng in just 76 minutes to claim her second consecutive title. Famous with the nickname The Tiger, Sabalenka has won the competition without dropping a set and defeated Coco Gauff in the semifinal. With the win, she received a prize money of A$3,150,000 and became the ninth woman in the Open Era to win successive titles at the Melbourne Major.

In 2023, Sabalenka managed to capture her first Grand Slam title, before overhauling Iga Swiatek to become the World No.1. Although she lost the ranking to her counterpart during the dying weeks of the season, it only serves as added motivation for the season to come. Her current WTA ranking is World No.2 in singles. She has won 14 titles in singles and 6 titles in doubles, totalling 20 titles. At the 2024 Dubai Tennis Championships she lost to Donna Vekic in the final by 6-7,6-3,6-0.

Aryna Sabalenka is well-known for her powerful groundstrokes, especially her aggressive forehand. In addition to her singles Major, she has also won two doubles Grand Slams. Stumbling upon tennis when her father drove past tennis courts, Sabalenka's story is the perfect example of destiny.

Aryna Sabalenka has two tattoos on her body. Both of them are fierce-looking tigers, one on her inner left forearm and one on her upper left thigh.

Belarusian tennis player Aryna Sabalenka is famous for her strong gameplay, and for being ranked as high as world No.1 in singles. Subsequently, she is also known for the fierce inks on her body. While Sabalenka does not have many tattoos, the tattoos of two tigers on different locations of her body have left her fans with dropped jaws. The first tattoo is on her inner left forearm, and it is of a roaring tiger with a very fierce look on its face. Coincidentally, her second tattoo is also that of a tiger; it is located on her upper left thigh.

When asked about the meaning of her first tattoo, Sabalenka revealed that the tiger reflects “her aggressive attitude while playing tennis.” Sabalenka also revealed that the tattoo helps her get motivated and keep her head in the game.

The tattoo on her forearm is the first ever time she got inked. When talking about the story of her getting a tattoo done for the first time and her parents' reaction to it, Sabalenka said, “I think I was 18-years-old and my parents didn’t know, and when they saw it the first time, my dad was laughing. I don’t know why but my mom didn’t talk to me for one week, and then she said, ‘I hope it’s the first in the last one, and I said, 'Look, mama, the first one and the last one and then I turned out I said ‘hopefully’.”
