We first met women's tennis star (and Sweaty Bands fanatic) Bethanie Mattek-Sands years ago at the Cincinnati Western & Southern Open, and have followed her career ever since. After struggling with injury for the past few seasons, we were thrilled to see her take the Australian Open women's doubles title with partner Lucie Safarova this weekend! She is always a badass, but has taken it to the next level by winning it all despite never having played OR practiced with Safarova before the tournament. Who needs practice anyway?! Watch their interview and read more about our favorite tennis superstar's big win below!
