The World No. 2 player suffered early exits at the Dubai Tennis Championships right after her Grand Slam win. Sabalenka could not do much at the Indian Wells Open as well. She bowed out of the Masters tournament after losing to America’s Emma Navarro in the fourth round.

After the Indian Wells, doubts rose over her participation in the Miami Open as she suffered a huge personal loss. However, Aryna Sabalenka stood strong and took part in the WTA 1000 event. Although she could not go all the way and was knocked out in the third round, Sabalenka earned praise for her strength. Fans supported the Belarusian throughout the tough phase and she has thanked them back now.

Sabalenka put a story on Instagram on Monday where she expressed gratitude for the love and support she received in this tough phase. The 25-year-old said that she carries the kind words with her every day.
