In the first match of Svitolina defeated Kiki, Bertens from the Netherlands.

“I tried to be very focused on his serve, because Vesnina is playing aggressive with the forehand and bekedam. Tried to act diversely and to think only about the present moment. I think I played a great game at its breakpoints. Today I showed a good game, very worthy. At major rallies, I’ve played securely, so the account ended up in my favor”, – quotes its statement to the publication “lawn tennis of Ukraine”.

Svitolina said that in Zhuhai held its last tournament of the season. Try to just go from match to match, from Seth to Seth and give their all. Also try to think if I have any more competition. “When you think it’s your last tournament, then the energy just goes away and there are thinking about the Maldives or something like that,” said the athlete.
