Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan takes Wimbledon title

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Elena Rybakina beat Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the Wimbledon final

on Saturday to become the first tennis player from Kazakhstan to win a Grand Slam singles championship.

Rybakina is a 23-year-old who was born in Moscow and has represented Kazakhstan since 2018,

when that country offered her funding to support her tennis career.

The switch has been a topic of conversation during Wimbledon,

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Elena Rybakina beat Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the Wimbledon final

because the All England Club barred all players who represent Russia or Belarus from

entering the tournament due to the war in Ukraine.
