Elina Svitolina: “a gift for mom on birthday”

The first racket of Ukraine Elina Svitolina started with a victory at the Australian Open. In two sets Ukrainian beat Galina Voskoboeva from Kazakhstan – 6:0, 6:2.

– The match was very good from my side, I played very aggressive and quickly reacted to her shock, says Elina. Very glad I was able to win because today is my moms birthday and that was such a gift to her.

Weather? Very hot, so everyone is trying less sun exposure because you can overheat. Also, and more nerves are present, so all can end is sad. But such conditions are the same for everyone, so I’m not really thinking about it.

Now quickly trying to adapt to hot conditions. We have to reduce the time of training, but in any case, the tournament has already begun and, as they say, before it is too late.

In the second round of the Australian Open, Elina Svitolina will play against the 119th-ranked Julia Boserup from the United States. The American got into the main draw through the qualification and in the opening match defeated Francesca Schiavone.
