Elina Svitolina

The first racket of Ukraine won the second game in the French tournament with a prize Fund of €12,032,000.

Thanks to the high seeded Elina Svitolina received in the second round opponent is quite walkable. On the court against the 18th seeded out Taylor Townsend, for which participation in the main draw at Roland Garros was a success. 20-year-old American occupies 172-e a place in the world rankings and stands mostly on ITF tournaments. The match against Svitolina was her 50th this year, however, given that since last year’s Roland Garros she played exclusively on the American tournaments, it was a real achievement.

The difference in class between the best tennis player of Ukraine and the American began to show from the start of the match. In the first games Svitolina has adapted to the game of the opponent, which was built on powerful strikes with both hands” in different corners of the court. Elina suddenly lost her serve in the first game, however, as it turned out, it happened to her in the first and last time in the match. Ukrainka quickly tied the score and later took a break. Svitolina simply ran across to the opponent, and also earned a lot of winnersof, using large size Townsend.

Successfully filing for the first set, Svitolina decided to save money and effort, and time in just 27 minutes, having dealt with the American in the second game. Only four points managed to earn Townsend on the pitch Elina, whereas our compatriot confidently played the break point and made three breaks, having “steering wheel” for the opponent.

As in the first round against Sorana of Kirsty, Svitolina swept the opponent off the court. But really Roland Garros to Ukrainka will begin with the third round where she was drawn as had the French champion the “major” 2008 Ana Ivanovic. It was the Serb in last year Elina stopped in Paris at the 1/4 final stage. Whether the first racket of Ukraine to get even with the ex-first racket of the world, learn soon.
