I'm not so sure about this one. Hopefully Elina can prove me wrong.

Elina wins 6-7(3) *4-1 ret. Got a bit lucky, but will now probably be Top 130 Plays Petkovic in the SF

I guess you watched the match. Did Elina play that well?

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

I saw about half of it, didn't see the first set and for the middle of the second the stream was cutting in and out a bit. Obviously Petkovic wasn't at her best, but Elina definitely played well. She is a big fighter, there were some tough moments in that second set (sooo many long games) and when Petkovic started to come back I thought she was going to lose it. But she kept fighting. Whenever there's a big point she starts grunting and you can tell she really gets focused Her first serve is great, second serve is still her weakness honestly. Her backhand is still her favourite shot, when she gets a midcourt ball she usually steps around and hits a backhand instead of most players who would hit a forehand. Her forehand is a good shot though, hit some nice winners! Her movement seems pretty good too.

More than anything I'm impressed with her attitude. Even though she's pretty emotional you can tell she fights for every single point, which I like

She's up to #126 in the rankings and if she wins the final she'll be #114 Top 100 is coming soon Unfortunately she has quite a few points to defend from ITFs late last year, so I'm not sure if she's going to defend them or end her year after this event.

She said she wants to be seeded for AO qual. So it's quite possible she'll continue to play.
