MEET ELINA SVITOLINA

Elina Svitolina has found a place among the elite and she is there to stay. Her precocious talent has been turning heads on tour ever since she won her first junior Grand Slam, the 2010 French Open, at the age of 15. Just two seasons later she also reached the final of Wimbledon in the same category. As a promising young player she quickly came into her own, winning her first professional title at the Baku Cup at only 18 years of age. Her rise to number 3 in the WTA world rankings has been meteoric, though it was last year when she really exploded onto the scene. The 23-year-old finished the 2017 season with more trophies than any other player (Taiwan Open, Dubai, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto), and in 2018 has already managed to add a tenth crown to her trophy cabinet after capturing the Brisbane International title.

‘The opportunity to play Tie Break Tens with a world class line-up at such an iconic venue is incredibly exciting. Such a fast-paced format is always going to be a challenge, but I’m looking forward to using my competitive spirit and consistent play to give me the edge.’

TIE BREAK STRENGTHS

CONSISTENCY

Of all of Svitolina’s assets, her consistency and reliability are her greatest weapons. She is fast and has power, ambition, youth and talent on her side. Elina is also one of the biggest fighters on tour.

SOLID SERVICE

The serve is the Ukrainian’s favourite shot, averaging 6 aces per match this year and 72% of points won with first services. Practically 80% of the games she serves go her way and she has saved 54.5% of break points conceded.

COMPETITIVE

She is not afraid of facing the best the WTA has to offer and she leads the head-to-heads with all of her fellow top-4 players; Simona Halep (3-2), Garbiñe Muguruza (4-3) and Caroline Wozniacki (3-1).
