The well-known Ukrainian tennis player made it to the quarter-finals of the US Open for the first time in her sports career, beating American Madison Kees.
The Ukrainian beat Keez, who ranks 9th in the WTA rating, in two sets with a score of 7: 5, 6: 4. In the next phase, Svitolina will compete with Johan Comte, a British tennis player. Currently, Elina's opponent is 16th in the ranking. It will be the first time that women athletes will meet, because for 4 times the Ukrainians managed to beat Johanna. I wonder if Elin will be able to win the anniversary victory.
Overall, the last season has been very productive in Svetolina's career. In 2019, she reached the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time in singles. Winter was one of the most successful for an athlete, because in January she managed to reach the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, and in December - to win the final WTA tournament.
Recall that Forbes recently included 24-year-old Elina in the top ten highest paid female athletes in the world, estimating her earnings over the past year at $ 6.1 million.
