He is quite a veteran and has represented Belarusian for 18 years. Sabalenka is highly active on social media and regularly posts stuff about her tennis as well as private life. In the past, she has revealed about her being engaged during a TV interview. It was in 2019, but she never took the name of her fiance and did not confirm if he was from Belarus.

Nonetheless, Koltsov is indeed from Belarus and the couple was spotted together in Paris after Aryna’s Roland Garros loss this season. It still remains unsolved if Kolstov is indeed the one who was engaged with Aryna back then or the Belarusian had to break her previous commitment and has made a fresh start with the former Ice Hockey player.
