1 in the 2nd set? There are so many things in my head…”
Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina commented on the victory over the representative of the country 404 Varvara Gracheva in the quarterfinals of the clay tournament of the WTA 250 series in Strasbourg (France):
“What do I think about winning in two sets? Yes, great match. I think we both played well, served well, so I’m very happy that I played consistently throughout the fight. I am glad that I won and went further, thank you all for your support, for the good atmosphere.
What happened when the score was 4-1 in the second set? You know, there is so much going on in my head, I was just trying to fight on, to dominate the court again. In the end, I returned to a good level of play, I was able to take the serve with the score 4:4, this game was very important. Yes, I am very satisfied with my level.
Today I had a great match, but this is not the peak of my abilities. I would like to use it as a foundation, this is not the end of the tournament, I also need to hopefully win a couple of matches here. Every time I try to show my best. This time it worked out in my favor, but I have to expect some days to be harder than others.”
In the semi-finals of the competition, Elina will play with Clara Burel.
