Aryna Sabalenka has won only the 2024 Australian Open this year.

Two-time Australian Open Champion Aryna Sabalenka recently reacted to a post on social media after fans stated that she’s ‘blessed to win’ after a brief interaction with Rafael Nadal.

Aryna Sabalenka has been in decent form in the clay season, as she has reached the finals of the Madrid Open and the Italian Open. However, she failed to lift the title, as she lost against Polish tennis star Iga Swiatek on both occasions.

Nevertheless, the Belarusian tennis star is moving forward, and she’s currently eyeing the 2024 French Open. Iga Swiatek is a three-time Roland Garros champion and she’ll be defending her title in the ongoing campaign.

During the last edition, she reached the semifinals of the claycourt Major, where she lost against eventual runner-up Karolína Muchová. Thus, Sabalenka is keen to win her first Grand Slam at the Red Dirt, but she’ll have to defeat Swiatek, who has been nearly flawless in the last four weeks, for the top spot.

While training in the Stade Roland Garros, she had a brief interaction with the King of Clay, Rafael Nadal. A video of the two tennis stars surfaced on social media. Sharing the video, an Aryna Sabalenka fan page wrote, “blessed to win?”.

The Belarusian tennis player later shared the post where she wrote “Ahahahah let’s see”. She also added a few emojis in her reaction. Sabalenka has been seeded second in the 2024 Roland Garros. However, she’ll have to defeat Iga Swiatek to win her first Claycourt Major.

Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal has been the greatest player in the tournament’s history with 14 titles and a win-loss record of 112-3. Unfortunately, the Spaniard is set to play his last French Open campaign from next year. The main draw of the Roland Garros is scheduled to start on May 26.
