Aryna Sabalenka has a man by her side to help her overcome her early Roland Garros defeat. The Belarusian is indulging in pleasure with hockey player Konstantin Koltsov, as we can conclude from their latest Instagram pics.
After losing in the third round of the French Open to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, the 23-year-old Sabalenka enjoyed sightseeing in Paris and treated herself with retail therapy at Christian Dior — she bought a leopard print handbag and slippers.
What’s intriguing is the person accompanying Sabalenka. The tennis star had revealed her engagement back in November 2019, but she always kept her fiancé a secret. The only thing she did confirm was that he wasn’t from Belarus. It looks like the engagement got broken off.
The guy accompanying Sabalenka in Paris now is Konstantin Koltsov, a 40-year-old from Minsk. I’m not sure if he’s still active, but he’s a hockey player. Both Sabalenka and Koltsov shared their love photos on social media today.
Can someone who speaks Russian translate Sabalenka’s and Koltsov’s photo captions? Google Translate says that Sabalenka wrote “And I like this one better”. This suggests that she has replaced her fiancé.
