Aryna Sabalenka and Paula Badosa give off ‘bestie goals’ with a ripped workout selfie on Instagram

Aryna Sabalenka‘s friendship with Paula Badosa is not a hidden fact anymore. The women’s tennis stars share a strong bond and they never shy away from accepting their love for each other. While Sabalenka recently thanked Badosa for cheering her after the Belarusian ace won her second Grand Slam title in Melbourne, she also shared a picture with Badosa where they can be seen posing after a workout session.

Sabalenka and Badosa posed in their gym outfits and the Belarusian shared the picture on her Instagram stories. The two-time Australian Open champion also asked her fans about who has the better abs and also asked if the two players looked alike.

While there is no update about what answers Sabalenka got from her fans, she ranked Badosa’s abs better than her.

Aryna Sabalenka extends her break after Australian Open triumph

After successfully defending her crown in Melbourne, Aryna Sabalenka is enjoying her time away from the tennis court. Although the 25-year-old took only 70 minutes (on average) to beat her opponents at the 2024 Australian Open, Sabalenka has extended her break as she will miss the WTA 1000 event in Qatar.

Sabalenka has pulled out of the Qatar Open for the second time in a row as she has decided to extend her celebrations. While Sabalenka will miss the tournament in Doha, her name is still there for the Dubai Tennis Championships. It is to be seen if the Belarusian decides to return to action or if she comes back to the court during the US swing.

No matter the tournament, Sabalenka will return with even more expectations for herself. The Belarusian achieves a rare feat by successfully defending her crown and hence will be expected to pull off more wins going ahead. Sabalenka is yet to prove her prowess on the clay court and she will be hoping to do it this time around.

The 25-year-old Belarusian has also not reached a final at Wimbledon. The highest Aryna Sabalenka has managed at the grass-court major is a semifinal qualification which she achieved last year. Nevertheless, she must look to maintain the momentum and break the jinx this year.
