On Saturday, Daria Kasatkina won many a heart both on and off the court.

The Russian tennis player, seeded sixth, came back from a set and 1-4 down to prevail 2-6 7-6 6-4 win over Tunisian qualifier Ons Jabeur in the final of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.

Apart from her stunning comeback, Kasatkina did one more thing to catch more eyes.

After winning the final point, Kasatkina was down on the court, weeping in joy. Jabeur, on the other, was down too, albeit due to cramps.

Kasatkina stopped her celebrations as she rushed to see if Jabeur is fine, exchanged a hug and even helped her walk towards the changeover.

The duo later took to their official Twitter handle to pay respect to each other.

“Thanks everyone big respect to @Ons_Jabeur fighter,” Kasatkina wrote.

“She was crying because she won. I was crying because I was cramping #love #this #sport

Thank you @DKasatkina,” Jabeur added.

Now, that’s some sportsmanship!
