Sabalenka stumbles over book name during press
Published Jan 12, 2021
During press this week in Abu Dhabi, Aryna Sabalenka found herself in a silly exchange when discussing her daily routine of reading a book on the beach. When asked what book it was, the 22-year-old couldn't stop giggling.
"Like, yesterday and today, I'm finishing really early and going to walk on the beach and read a book," Sabalenka said. "The book, this is really funny, the book is called '[The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck]'.
"This is the name of the book, I'm not swearing here, I promise!"
Despite Sabalenka's legit claim that she wasn't cursing with ill intent, the No. 4 seed could not help but turn red and laugh.
After defeating Maria Sakkari in the semifinals of the WTA 500, Sabalenka will face Veronika Kudermetova in Wednesday's final. Sabalenka is riding a 14-match win streak after winning two titles to wrap up her 2020 season.
