Elina Svitolina

The first racket of Ukraine Elina Svitolina finally managed to beat Ana Ivanovic and went out in the fourth round of Roland Garros.

Elina Svitolina was very well aware of Ana Ivanovic. Prior to tonight’s game seven times Ukrainian was on the court against the champion of Roland Garros-2008, but never was never able to get the upper hand over the opponent. Moreover, a native of Odessa has won only one set in head-to-heads – in Indian wells in 2014. And most interestingly, two of those seven games have fallen in the previous two rounds of the French Open, where Ivanovic has invariably been an insurmountable obstacle for Ukrainian women. The year before, the Serbian stopped our compatriot on the stage of the second round, and in last season’s competition has not allowed Svitolina to reach the semifinals.

Current French competition-up for tennis players. Svitolina in the same breath held the Soran Cirstea and Taylor Townsend, not having reason to doubt its excellent playing form. Ivanovic had harder – 14-I racket of the tournament unexpectedly gave the second batch in the game with Océan Dozen and suffer with Kurumi Nara in the first half in the second round. If you add here are not the most stable performances eks-the first racket in recent times, it is not she looked to be the favorite of the match.

Tennis “carousel” started on the court with the start of the match. The girls were unstable on the pitch and generously provided each other break points. In the first four games hurt, no one left and both were able to boast two innings taken by the opponent. Further Svitolina and I. finally once won “their” game, after which continued to make mistakes. In the final segment of the first set, luck was on the side of the Ukrainian – in the ninth game, the Serb missed a serve, hitting the net on the forehand, and in the 10th game to help Elina come first serve and she managed to pick up Seth.

At this point it became clear that Svitolina is able to finally overcome “the curse Ivanovich”. It was important not to lose concentration and continue to force the opponent to make a mistake in the drawings. Ukrainian confidently started the second batch, from the second break point, took delivery rivals and securing the success of another game taken. In the fifth game Ivanovich was again nachinalas right and was on the verge of a precipice – Svitolina led 4:1 and were not going to surrender.

But then Elina unexpectedly poorly played on the pitch and giving two double allowed the competitor to make a break. Following a protracted game also left behind Ivanovich, and later, the woman again took the feed Svitolina. It seemed that the Ukrainian’s about to break and let more experienced opponent to take the game under control… But no! The Serbian made a lot of mistakes in the final two games – at first Elina proved to be great at the reception, and then in the 10th game of the first matchbola set the final score on the scoreboard.

“Game, set and match” rejoice and Ukraine. Svitolina has done the seemingly impossible and beat Ivanovic. It was nice to see the ecstasy Ukrainka after the last drawing, because today is a big day for her. Ukrainian athlete won three matches in the tournament, whereas last year she managed to win in Paris, winning four. What will happen next, view. After all, the tournament table displays the Elin at the winner of the match between Serena Williams and Kristina Mladenovic…
