Aryna Sabalenka’s miraculous run in 2023
World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka has been wonderful throughout the 2023 season. She managed to have a good run at all four Grand Slam titles. After a first-ever Grand Slam title win in Australia, the Belarusian managed to reach the semi-finals at Wimbledon and the French Open.
At the US Open, she managed to reach the finals but unfortunately lost to American Coco Gauff. Other than the Grand Slams, she managed to reach multiple finals and quarterfinals of various WTA tournaments.

She will now defend her Australian title next year, and before this, she will play an exhibition match against finalist Elena Rybakina. Sabalenka said:
I'm excited about starting my 2024 Australian season in Brisbane. Australia holds a special place in my heart after winning my first Grand Slam there.
Australia will welcome returning champion Naomi Osaka, who is a huge addition to the WTA tour and poses a huge threat to the Belarusian and her title defense. Fans will be excited for the new season, which promises more and more entertainment.
