How I defeated Sabalenka. ANISIMOVA

Soon after the match, Amanda explained what happened in her match against Sabalenka to comment

“I’m really happy with my performance today. I beat her before (Australian Open), but I was trying not to think about it on a different surface so I was just coming out ready and I’m really happy with the rhythm I had today.

We had short points here too I thought it would be a little bit longer, but we were still hitting pretty hard so I mean it was pretty similar. I’m taking it one match out of time so I’m going to prepare for that for that round and hopefully, I’ll play the same as I did today.”
