American World Number four Sofia Kenin made a phenomenal start of the season by taking down the two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza in the finals of the Australian Open. 21-year-old Kenin played a rollercoaster match against the Spaniard Muguruza. With her fearless tennis skills, she claimed her first Major title.
With the number of COVID-19 cases escalating in New York, Florida resident Kenin took the initiative to donate 1,020 water bottles for the frontline workers at the Coney Island Hospital in New York.
Kenin has partnered with VOSS Water, a premium brand for water, and collectively they made the donation. Moreover, VOSS Water has already donated more than 700K water bottles for frontline workers in the USA.
“Hi everyone, I’m Sofia Kenin. I’m super happy to be in a position to donate 1,020 bottles of water to the wonderful frontline fighters at the Coney Island Hospital, who are fighting this terrible disease. I hope this puts a smile on their faces during these difficult times. And I wish you all to stay healthy and safe,” she announced on social media.
After receiving her donation, the hospital staff expressed their gratitude for the same.
The American Kenin’s title-winning did not stop in Melbourne. During the first week of March, she played at Lyon Open as the top-seed, and successfully clinched the title.
However, she couldn’t keep up with her victorious run on the WTA circuit. As the coronavirus pandemic suspended all the tennis events.
In 2020, besides her two title victories, Kenin was defeated by Naomi Osaka in Brisbane, Danielle Collins in Adelaide, Elena Rybakina in Dubai, and Dayana Yastremska in Qatar.
During the first week of February, she featured at Fed Cup 2020 qualification rubber and led her Team USA to reserve a spot in the finals.
