Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

Elina Svitolina had no intention of spending long in the sun during her second match at Melbourne Park on Thursday, and that's exactly what she managed as she eased past her Australian opponent, Olivia Rogowska in straight sets - 6-4 7-5.

The 19-year-old Svitolina entered the WTA top 50 last year and despite her relative inexperience, played on Hisense Arena with a commanding and confident presence.

It took Svitolina a little while to get going, however. With a home crowd behind her, Rogowska started strong, breaking Svitolina in her first service game.

The 22-year-old from Melbourne has been on the WTA tour since 2007, but hasn’t yet found much success at the Australian Open, her 2014 campaign being one of her most promising.

But Svitolina didn’t let her opponent’s hometown advantage bother her. With fast serving and accurate forehands, she broke back and slowly found her rhythm.

Moving around the cauldron-like arena with assurance, Svitolina’s vocal and animated celebrations got inside Rogowska’s head.

Seemingly intimidated, Rogowska’s accuracy plummeted, hitting 36 unforced errors to Svitolina’s 24.

In the stifling 40-degree Melbourne heat, Svitolina used her groundstrokes to push Rogowska all corners of the court.

Looking frustrated and irritated, the Australian was out of sorts for much of the match - despite hitting 22 winners to Svitolina’s 19, her unforced errors were the reason behind the score difference.

If not for a slight hiccup in the end, when Rogowska’s last chance effort broke the Ukrainian, Svitolina’s tactics and execution were flawless.

Rounding out the match in a poised style, Svitolina will now face the winner of the match between Sloane Stephens and Ajla Tomljanovic.

Lucky you. I didnt feel like fighting the weekend crowds. I saw her doubles match but not a whole lot to report about. She looks nice though.

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

So people were saying her knocking out Cibulkova at US Open was nothing. This all puts things into perspective

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.
