An American trip that changed her life. Marina Zaniewska descended on Indian Wells last week and returned with a bag full of emotional events.
The Belgian played a strong match in the first round of the first tournament. In the match against Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk – Zanevska was also born in the affected country – the result was in fact secondary.
“It was clearly one of the most emotional matches of my career,” Zaniewska said afterwards. “It is very difficult to be on the field with everything that is happening in Ukraine right now.”
The war situation also had personal consequences for Zaniewska. The tennis star usually gets married in her native Ukraine. But look, after she was eliminated, Zaniewska automatically left for Las Vegas with her German partner Philip Andreas Schmidt to tie the knot.
Zanevska shared the amazing story herself via Instagram. “Because of the war in my home country, this is definitely not a time to party. For the past few weeks I have realized that nothing is more important than peace, family and love. But also you do not have to wait until tomorrow to do something in time. Because that day may not Come “.
“We got married on Sunday, March 13th, exactly two years after we closed together,” Zaniewska continues. “We will definitely remember this wild day for a long time and we have something to say to our children.”
“I pray that the war in Ukraine ends soon and that I can see my family again soon to celebrate peace and this special moment.”
