Being a sibling or a family member of a top tennis player is no fun. You through a lot of ups and downs during matches. Sometimes they are as worn out as the players involved.
Anna Rybakina has attracted attention for her reactions on the sidelines as she watched her sister Elena Rybakina play at Indian Wells. She was seen cheering, praying, and going through emotions as Elena Rybakina’s matches waxed and waned through the week.
Anna Rybnakina is the older sister of Elena Rybakina. Speaking of her sister’s reaction during her matches, Elena Rybakina said:
Actually, when she talks to me she’s very calm, but then I see all these videos during the matches and I’m like, what were you doing? She’s very emotional and she supports me a lot
Some fans thought Anna was too animated while others thought it was a normal reaction while supporting her sister.
