Every professional tennis player has a dream to win a single Grand Slam title in their career. Here, World Number Five Elina Svitolina narrates her Grand Slam dream story through the path of the former major title champions.
Ukrainian tennis star appeared four times in the Grand Slam quarterfinals rounds in the Australian and French Open. Moreover, She worked hard for the major tournament title in 2019. As a result, Svitolina qualified for semifinals at Wimbledon and US Open. However, Elina is still hoping for her Grand Slam at the earliest opportunities.
“In recent years, we see that tennis players had different paths to victory. Someone won right away as soon as they announced themselves on the tour. Others patiently gained experience to finally win the major, for example, Simone Halep and Caroline Wozniacki. Different paths are also due to different styles of play,” she explained, quoted by btu.org.ua
“It gives me hope and energy to work hard so that one day I can take this chance. The key point for me is to keep my best level for two weeks. This requires a lot of effort, both psychological and physical. Everything should work at the same time. And you need to add a little luck.” Svitolina added.
“There Are Still Many, Many Unanswered Questions.”- Elina Svitolina
The 25-years-old Svitolina has not yet confirmed her international tennis tour resumption and participation in the US Open 2020. Although, the Women’s Tennis Association(WTA) tennis tournament will begin on 3rd August from Palermo Ladies Open in Italy.
She also explained, “The truth is that they have been very close to us. Every week they organized videoconferences to inform us of everything. Sometimes they even invited representatives from the ITF or the USTA, since the US Open has been the most talked-about tournament in recent weeks on whether the tournament should be played or not.”
“They just inform us, but they are the ones who have to make the decisions. As you can see, each country has its rules and changes happen every week. There are still many, many unanswered questions.” Monterrey Champion concluded.
