12:59 p.m .: Ukrainian Kostyuk refuses to shake hands with Belarusian Sabalenka at Roland-Garros

Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk refused to shake hands with Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka after her French Open 6-3, 6-2 loss in the first round. Originally from kyiv, Kostyuk considers the tennis authorities too accommodating with Russian and Belarusian players in the measures taken in response to the invasion of his country by troops from Moscow in February 2022.

She had already chosen not to greet another Belarusian, Victoria Azarenka, preferring to touch her opponent’s racket with hers during the last US Open. She decided not to greet Sabalenka at all this time, drawing boos from the audience at the time, then walking off the court.

“It doesn’t matter if she hates me,” Sabalenka, world No.2, who was asked about it, said before the meeting. “Regarding the absence of a handshake, I can understand it,” she added.
