‘I think I’m clear now,’ says Aryna Sabalenka as she reveals she has been vaccinated after Covid-19 battle
She was initially skeptic about the Covid-19 vaccine, but Aryna Sabalenka has been vaccinated and hopes her quarantine days are over.
Back in March the Belarusian admitted that she didn’t “really trust” the vaccines, adding “I don’t really want it yet and I don’t want my family to take it”.
However, she missed the BNP Paribas Open in October after testing positive for the coronavirus and has subsequently taken a vaccine.
“I think I’m clear right now because in Miami I did the vaccine, Johnson & Johnson,” the world No 2 said.
“Hopefully, I’m safe because I don’t want to stay in quarantine any more. It’s not a lot of fun.”

Sabalenka – who is the top seed for this week’s season-ending WTA Finals in Guadalajara, Mexico – revealed that her battle with Covid-19 was not straightforward and knocked her out for a few days.
“I stayed in the room for 10 days. I was doing some work out there, but it wasn’t enough,” she said.
“For four days I was really sick, I couldn’t move. I didn’t have taste, I didn’t have smell. Wasn’t really an amazing time.”
