Tennis Grand Slam 2023 Australian Open – Women’s singles

▪ In the 2023 Australian Open women’s singles final, Aryna Sabalenka emerged victorious, defeating Elena Rybakina 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 to claim her first major singles title.

Aryna Sabalenka, a 24-year-old from Belarus had a strong tournament, losing only one set. She previously won the US Open in 2019 and the Australian Open in 2021.

▪ Aryna Sabalenka made history by becoming the first player to win a Grand Slam tournament while representing a neutral flag.

What is a “Neutral Flag”?

▪ Due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, Russian and Belarusian players are unable to compete under their own national flags.

▪ Instead, they are required to compete without any national affiliation. This means that players from these two countries will not be able to represent their respective countries with the Russian or Belarusian flag, but they will be able to compete under a neutral flag.

▪ In accordance with rules set by global tennis organizations, no Belarusian flags were permitted inside the tournament venue, and the winner’s trophy will not include any mention of Sabalenka’s nationality.
