In the match for the title, the native of Moscow, who played under the Russian flag until 2018, won a strong-willed victory over the second racket of the world Ons Jaber from Tunisia.
Yelena Rybakina (Kazakhstan) – Ons Zhaber (Tunisia) – 3:6, 6:2, 6:2
Both tennis players played in the final of the Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Previously, both of them did not go further than the quarterfinals.
Rybakina broke an unsuccessful streak of four lost finals in a row.
It should be noted that the British did not allow tennis players from the Russian Federation and Belarus to participate in the competition due to the military invasion of Ukraine.
In response, the WTA deprived the competition of tournament points, so Zhaber, for example, will drop to fifth place in the world ranking.
