Elena Rybakina tells how she achieved victory at Wimbledon

Elena Rybakina arrives at Wimbledon as defending champion and after a year that she saw her as the absolute protagonist. Finalist in Australia, winner of Indian Wells and Rome, the Kazakh has become number three in the world and her growth has led her to be higher and higher.

Together with Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka, Elena is part of the Big Three of the women's circuit, a sport that no longer sees a swirl of favorites but finally three absolute protagonists in the circuit. During an interview for the Daily Mail, she revealed some anecdotes about the beginning of her career and revealed her future ambitions.

Here are some of herstatements: "I have a sister three years older than me and my parents have always focused on making us play sports, even a little to keep us busy! They took my sister and me to the skating rinks to make us to do artistic gymnastics, but according to the coaches we were too tall.

My father had played tennis when he was young and he liked that sport, as soon as I started I was electrocuted while my sister didn't like it. It was difficult to play without her at the beginning but after that I slowly grew up.

I've played a lot in these years but until I was 17 I didn't think I would become a professional tennis player."

Of Russian origin but naturalized Kazakh, Elena then went on to comment on her season: "I had a lot of ups and downs last season and before Wimbledon I hadn't had great results.

I've had a lot of progrlms with injuries and maybe I had too many expectations. I played Wimbledon with almost no expectations and things got better match after match. I used to see Wimbledon a lot as a kid and loved the strawberry and champagne tradition, I never imagined I'd play it let alone win it.

Wimbledon is a beautiful place, playing on center court again will bring me good memories. Compared to last year we will stay in a bigger house, my team will be more numerous." Fortunately Elena won't have to defend points at Wimbledon given the situation of last year and for this reason she will be able to face the tournament without too much pressure. The tennis player remains, together with the other two big names, one of the main favorites for the final victory.
