After losing out to Iga Swiatek again in the final of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia over the weekend, Aryna Sabalenka wasn't ready to head to Paris for Roland Garros quite yet: The world No. 2 made a pit stop at Formula One's Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix on Sunday, where she turned heads by also sporting a stylish, custom Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh jacket.

The eye-popping piece accesorized Sabalenka's outfit, which also featured a black-and-white tank, a black skirt and matching flats. The jacket, with gray and white accents, featured a glittering, roaring tiger on the back—Sabalenka's signature animal—plus a tennis ball and her nickname, "Saby."

On the front of the jacket was the fashion house's insignia, alongside a note which read, "Exclusively made for Aryna Sabalenka."

Sabalenka isn't the first player to don custom Off-White apparel. Before Abloh's passing from cancer in 2021, he worked with Serena and Venus Williams on several projects, including Williams' famous match kits for the 2018 US Open and Roland Garros a year later. He also designed Elina Svitolina's dress for her wedding to Gael Monfils.


But far from the tennis court, or from a walk down the aisle, Sabalenka donned this piece on a pre-race tour of the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, given to her by MoneyGram Haas F1 team.

The world No. 2 snapped photos with Danish driver Kevin Magnussen, who finished 12th in the race, and got up close and personal with the cars trackside.

"From the court to the track," she wrote. "Thanks for the tour!"


Sabalenka's custom off-court pieces will soon give way to another head-turning on-court look, as she recently helped Nike unveil its 2024 tournament collection for Roland Garros. After storming to her second Australian Open title in an eye-popping exclusive red colorway of the brand's Melbourne line, can Sabalenka do the same in a clay-court-inspired Parisian rust
