Champions Corner: Sabalenka conquers clay in Madrid
Aryna Sabalenka won her 10th career title at the 2021 Mutua Madrid Open, defeating World No.1 Ashleigh Barty 6-0, 3-6, 6-4 to capture her first title on clay. As a result, the 23-year-old will rise to a career-high No.4 in the rankings and zoom up to the No.3 position on the Porsche Race to Shenzhen Leaderboard. Only Barty and Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka have earned more points this season.
Sabalenka joined the podcast after her Madrid win to discuss her magical week, why she needed it, and what she expects with Roland Garros around the corner.
