Ukrainian Elina Svitolina commented on her victory over Australian Daria Gavrilova in Indian Wells and the upcoming meeting with Ashleigh Barty.
“I expected the match to be difficult. Daria and I have known each other for a very long time. It seems that we first met on the court when we were ten years old. We are perfectly familiar with each other’s playing styles. To confront her is always difficult, but she tried to focus on her game plan. I am very pleased with how I ended the meeting.
As for the match with Barty, we met a couple of times. So I am a little familiar with her style, and I will need to be well prepared. In addition, you need to have time to recover, “the WTA press service quotes Svitolina as saying.
