Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina commented on reaching the semifinals of the tournament in Indian Wells.
“Today, the most important thing was to fight for each ball and try to perform more than one opponent on one hit. This match was not perfect, but I fought. I had to stay in the game. Marketa is not an easy opponent because she uses a different spin. In the match she needs to move well. I think such conditions are suitable for her game. The rebound is very high here. I had to run a lot. so I had to force myself to move I. There were a lot of long draws in the match. I tried to use all the remaining forces. There is a day off, and this is good. I will have time to recover. This is important. I feel tired, but this is normal. very hard match.
Then I will play with Andreescu. She demonstrates wonderful tennis, moves great. I need to prepare for this game. We have seen not so many of her matches, because she is only 18. At such a young age she plays in major tournaments with top tennis players, so she is already well prepared psychologically. I will need to show my best tennis, “the Tour press service quotes Elina.
