Elina Svitolina: In the match with Venus, she could not afford to scatter points

Ukrainian Elina Svitolina commented on her victory over Venus Williams in Paris and the upcoming meeting with her compatriot Katerina Kozlova.

“I was focused only on what depended on me. I knew that a difficult match was waiting for me, but it only motivated me to start the tournament successfully. I could not afford to scatter points. At some moments, Venus acted so cool that I could only accept and continue to play. This helped me fighting spirit. When you experience injuries, it is important to meet your expectations. Need to take the time and give yourself time to recover.

Katerina and I have known each other for a long time, but I have not watched her matches for a long time. Although for me it does not matter, because I do not think about a competitor. I concentrate on my game. For me it is important to be ready for the match. It seems to me that now I am moving well and psychologically fresh. This is the most important thing, “the WTA press service quotes Svitolina as saying.
