Kazakhstan offered to fund Rybakina’s tennis career in 2018.

The switch has been a topic of conversation during Wimbledon because the All England Club barred all players who represent Russia or Belarus from entering the tournament because of the war in Ukraine.

In the match, the 23rd-ranked 23-year-old fell behind in the first set but rallied behind a powerful serve and strong forehand to take down the second-ranked Jabeur.
