Elina Svitolina: I have changed since our last meeting with Halep

Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina shared her impressions of her victory  in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon.

“I am very pleased and have tremendous emotions, but I try not to dwell on it. I used to try not to think about what I always lost in the quarter finals. Now this barrier has been passed.

I think that over the years I have become more patient. In the quarterfinals, I had a lot of hard fights. Sometimes I frankly did not have enough luck, sometimes I was not in the best shape.

In any case, I gain experience. There comes the realization that you need to save power, competently approach the training process. Everyone eventually finds his way. It seems that I succeeded.

Today I had to wear down my opponent. This is a very difficult task. Fatigue affected Caroline’s actions, and I had to take advantage of this, ”the WTA press service quoted Elina as saying.

“We often met with Halep. Perhaps, since our last match, I became another. I am sure that an exciting match awaits us. I hope that I can demonstrate my best tennis.

In general, now I just enjoy the fact that I play freely and show high-quality tennis. Reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals is a special moment, ”added Svitolina.
