She and the coach are at ISP academy in France

What do you like about her game? I think she changed quite a lot from start of the year when she seemed to be neutral and hit a lot of balls back up the middle and go for long rallies. Now she is hitting more angles and mixing more change of speed and slice in. When she played Cohen they were having huge moonball rallies, some of Cohen's moonballs were so high she was right on the fence jumping to reach them. In Baku she was attacking the moonballs and keeping the rallies short. She also changed her service and its really smooth now.

IDK exactly but just her action is really nice. She seems to get easy power but has a simple swing and when she hits winners it is amazing Also she just has a nice all round game (except for Drive Volleys ) which I can identify with in my game She is fast and on the run is very effective. Just a nice player to watch

So does anyone know her next tournament?

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

Elina has quite an awkward draw in Donets'k with Kremen first followed by Kaininha/Kapsjhay and then most likely Kichenok. After that most likely Pfizenmaier and then Dononc/Babos/Pliskova ()/Joao Koehler. It is stronger than last weeks 100K by quite a bit IMO I mean I know she should beat all these players and did so last week but maybe she will be physically/mentally tired or may get a bit cocky... Who knows I mean after she won Pune she lost in the QF of Dubai 75K to Putintseva who now I think she would eat

She's also playing Doubles with Kristyna Pliskova which is nice to see and they may be a good team but the Kichenok's in Round 1 won't help I like that she plays Doubles a lot and with kinda random people

EDIT: Elina won 2 and 4 vs Kremen I expected more but still, a win is a win and it wasn't like she was in danger
