Elena Rybakina beats Ons Jabeur to win women's championship at Wimbledon

LONDON - - Too anxious to wave, Elena Rybakina ventured into the Center Court daylight before the Wimbledon last Saturday and kept a firm twofold grasp on the dark and-red lashes of the racket pack threw over her shoulders.

No wave. Not a very remarkable glance around. Her play right off the bat sold out certain nerves which seems OK considering it was her presentation in a Grand Slam championship.

Almost two hours of large swinging and a lot of running later, she had come out on top for the title at the All England Club with a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 triumph over Ons Jabeur - - the main singles prize at a significant competition for her embraced nation of Kazakhstan.

"Glad that it got done, frankly," she said, "in light of the fact that, truth be told, I never felt something like this."

She added later: "I don't know what should happen. When I was giving speech in the end I was thinking, 'I'm going to cry right now,' but somehow I hold it. Maybe later when I'm going to be alone in the room, I'm going to cry nonstop. I don't know."

Since the WTA computer rankings began in 1975, just one woman ranked lower than the No. 23 Rybakina has won Wimbledon -- Venus Williams in 2007 at No. 31

"You have an amazing game, and I don't think we have someone like this on tour," Rybakina told Jabeur during the postmatch trophy ceremony

Rybakina entered the fortnight with 100-1 odds to win this title, according to Caesars Sportsbook.
