Svitolina: I will start in Madrid instead of the US Open

Elina Svitolina commented on her participation in subsequent tournaments.

Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina shared her plans for the second half of the season, which was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

«I think both Grand Slam tournaments, which are scheduled for the end of this year, will take place. It depends on the organizers of the US Open and Roland Garros to what extent they will provide opportunities for players to be safe. I don’t know how full the strongest players will be, but tournaments will be held.

Given the situation today, I think I will start in Madrid and will not play in the US Open. I think so at the moment, but so far this is not a 100% final decision. My motivation to go to the United States could be the protection of glasses. If the WTA said that the points would be removed, then I would like to go and perform, so as not to lose position in the rankings. We are in a difficult situation (due to a pause), so you would not want to worsen your position in the classification.

There is another factor — it’s health, it is, of course, also important. So, given the rules of the WTA, I will be able to earn points only if I perform better at the US Open than last season. A year ago, I reached the semifinals and it is quite difficult to repeat such a result or surpass it, ”Svitolina was quoted as saying by Ukrainian Grand Tennis.
