Daria Kasatkina is a woman of the people.
After a three-set win over Barbora Krejcikova at the WTA Elite Trophy that thrilled fans at the Hengqin International Tennis Center in Zhuhai, the world No. 17 gave them an even better present: She and girlfriend Natalia Zabiiako's must-see vlog, Kasatkina & Zabiiako, that chronicles the behind-the-scenes action of the tennis tour is now available on Bilibili, the Chinese alternative to YouTube.
Kasatkina slipped the news in at the close of her on-court interview after the 7-5, 1-6, 6-1 victory: As the on-court interview was set to send her on her way, she raised her hand to add a shoutout to the crowd. (Video above)
"Thank you everyone for coming. It means a lot. I feel your support," Kasatkina began, before pivoting: "And also, if you want, our vlogs are now on Bilibili, so subscribe! Now, our Asian fans can see it without VPN! Thank you for your love, thank you for your support."
Zabiiako than added to the commentary on Instagram, reposting a fan's screenshot of their profile to her story saying, "Hey Bilibili, we are here."
The couple recently celebrated their second anniversary, and their vlog has not only been a popular destination for tennis fans looking for an unfiltered look at the tennis tour, but also for players to share their own personalities.
Kasatkina went viral during the US Open for plugging the channel in her pre-match interview before her fourth-round match against Aryna Sabalenka, and in recent weeks, she and Zabiiako have even launched a joint Instagram account to further expand their brand.
Now, in addition to finding herself on yet another new social media platform, Kasatkina is also in pole position to qualify for the semifinals after her three-set win over Krejcikova.
Kasatkina can seal her place by defeating Australian Open semifinalist Magda Linette on Thursday. Linette was beaten by Krejcikova in the opening round-robin match of the group.
