Ukrainian tennis player Angelina Kalinina won the third round of the WTA 1000 tournament in Miami (USA). Her opponent in the game was Belarusian Arina Sobolenko.

Angelina Kalinina (No. 36 WTA) played against the second ranked player in the world, Arina Sobolenko from Belarus, who plays in a neutral status. The match lasted two hours and ended with the results of three sets with the score 6:4, 1:6, 6:1.

This victory of the Ukrainian became a big sensation, because before the start of the meeting, the coefficient for Kalinin's exit to the next round was 8.40, and for Sobolenko's success – 1.12.

In the last set, Angelina crushed her opponent, which drove her crazy. The neutral Belarusian started smashing her own racket right on the court.

F***, f***. Go away, you f***, – said the Belarusian emotionally.

For Angelina Kalinina, this is the second victory in her career over an opponent from the TOP-5 world rankings. The first was in 2022 over Maria Sakkari from Greece.

In the 1/8 finals, the Ukrainian will meet the representative of Kazakhstan Yulia Putintseva (No. 68 WTA). In the past, the rivals have exchanged victories, the score in personal meetings is 1:1.
