The first major tournament of the year, the Australian Open 2021, is less than a week away. And the American World No. 4 Sofia Kenin has the big responsibility of defending the title. Presently, the 22-year-old is playing in the WTA Yarra River Valley Classic, a lead-up event for the Happy Slam. In the post-match conference after her first win there, she opened up about her preparations with Latvia’s Jelena Ostapenko.

After spending five hours together for two weeks, the American star realized that they were not different from one another. “I am happy with the way it went,” Sofia continued. “We both have the same character. We are both quite stubborn and get mad at the littlest things. And start not blaming ourselves for missing, but get mad and say ‘yeah the court, the net is.’” Furthermore, the reigning Australian Open champion claimed that they had fun and got along really well, and maybe they got along too well. “After the two weeks, I had to practice with another player, [Elina] Svitolina, which was a great practice. But, it was different, I was so used to Alona’s space or rhythm,” Sofia laughed. Without a doubt, their training sessions have been a success for the American star. She will hope to keep her rhythm as the season progresses.
