Moscow-born Elena Rybakina, who represents Kazakhstan, has won the Wimbledon women’s singles title in a year that Russians are banned from the tournament.

O xogador de 23 anos venceu ao número 2 do mundo Ons Jabeur de Tunisia en tres sets por 3-6, 6-2 e 6-2.

Rybakina mostrou algúns nervios no primeiro set pero volveu forte no segundo e terceiro para derrotar a Jabeur, que buscaba converterse na primeira muller árabe e na primeira africana en gañar un Grand Slam.

The All England Club’s imposed a ban on Russian and Belarusian players after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Pero Rybakina foi autorizada a competir xa que pasou a representar a Casaquistán hai catro anos.

A súa vitoria é histórica porque é a primeira xogadora que representa a Kazajistán en gañar un título de Grand Slam.

Rybakina tomou a decisión de cambiar de alianza para recibir máis financiamento e dixo repetidamente que está feliz de representar ao seu país de adopción.

Asked before the final if she still “feels Russian”, Rybakina said: “What does it mean for you to feel? I mean, I’m playing tennis, so for me, I’m enjoying my time here.

“I feel for the players who couldn’t come here, but I’m just enjoying playing here on the biggest stage, enjoying my time and trying to do my best.

“I’m playing already for Kazakhstan for a long time. I’m really happy representing Kazakhstan.”

She has called for the war in Ukraine to “stop as soon as possible”. Asked about her residence, which is reported to be in Moscow, she has said: “I think I’m based on tour because I’m travelling every week.”

The tournament’s decision to prohibir os xogadores rusos e bielorrusos – which stopped world No 1 Daniil Medvedev from participating, among others – was highly controversial.

In response, the women’s and men’s tennis associations, WTA and ATP respectively, took the unprecedented step of not awarding rankings points to any players at the tournament.
