Aryna Sabalenka’s candid demeanor has once again caused a stir in the tennis world! The current World No. 2, who is enjoying her time in Rome, is not only making headlines for her powerful performance on the court but also her unfiltered conversations off the court. Following her latest match, fans got a glimpse of such an incident for the second time during her Italian Open interview series.

Aryna Sabalenka is moving swiftly through the Italian Open and has currently earned her place in the semi-final match. Naturally, she displayed a good spirit during a post-match interview after her quarter-final match against Jelena Ostapenko. So, when the interviewer asked the two-time Grand Slam champion about her recent “A Day in the Life” videos on her social media, she could not hold back her raw emotions.

Sabalenka started off by saying,” I want to show people my daily life and so far people like it.” However, in her next line, she added, “As soon as people start saying stop it we are tired of this bull***t.” Soon after realizing that she had used a curse word, Sabalenka dropped the mic immediately, looking to the side on dismay.
