Elena Rybakina shocked the tennis world by defeating Ons Jabeur in the Wimbledon final in straight sets, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, to claim her maiden Grand Slam title. As a result of the decision she took four years ago, the 23-year-old Moscow-born player was able to evade the embargo set by the organizers of the Championships.
It has been clear, notwithstanding Rybakina’s claims at previous London news conferences, that her performance on the All England Club lawns has created significant debate between Russia and Kazakhstan.
“Kazakstan has been a part of my life for a long time, and I am proud to represent it. Throughout my whole life, they have always shown faith in my abilities. No more comments are necessary. A long period has passed since my initiation as a Kazakhstani footballer began. In addition, I competed in the Olympics as a Kazakhstani soccer player.

Rallying around the slogan “We won Wimbledon.” Russia is exulting.
The Russians, on the other hand, were ecstatic following their triumph at Wimbledon.
