Jelena Ostapenko has bowed out of the Australian Open after losing to Elena Rybakina in the quarter-finals

Jelena Ostapenko is known for her weird stances and verbal nods while serving and it was on display once again during her quarter-final match against Elena Rybakina. Ostapenko’s weird pictures have gone viral once again to the delight of meme creators and fans on social media. There is never a dull moment when Ostapenko is on court and it was no different during her 4-6, 2-6 defeat at the Rod Laver Arena.

Ostapenko’s presence on court is equally entertaining for fans present at the stadium as well as viewers on other platforms. She has always maintained that it’s really difficult for her to find a balance of emotions while playing. “It’s always hard to find this balance. As I always said, it’s easy to judge from the outside, but when you are on my place, it’s a little bit different. All people are different. Somebody is more calm. Somebody is more emotional”, Ostapenko had earlier stated in an interview.
