The first racket of Ukraine commented on his performance in Melbourne.

The fourth racket of the world Elina Svitolina has shared his opinion on the result of the quarterfinal match against Australian Open Belgian tennis player Elise Mertens.

“Today was really hard for me physically. I wasn’t ready to show a good level of tennis. Mertens is also a great tennis player, she’s got a good level that I could not catch up.

Before the start of the tournament I had some health problems. Very sad that today I was not feeling well. What is the problem? This injury to the right thigh. She began to bother me after the final in Brisbane, then got worse, then better, then worse.

I have always had a tight bandage under the shorts. Sometimes everything was fine, but today my opponent played at a good level, so I had to push myself. She didn’t give me a chance, she needs to pay tribute to”, – quotes tennis Svitolina of Ukraine.

We will remind, Svitolina couldn’t show in the match against Mertens.
