Even at this game she got no cheers (well , except from me ) and there were lots of people applauding loudly each successful play by Svitolina (and there were very few). Later in the day I mentioned her name to a fan of Miriana Lucic and I immediately got a dismissive reaction from the guy, accompanied by a gesture imitating her hitting a slice.
Well, casual tennis fans will always cheer for the opponent that is getting demolished, out of pity, that's pretty normal to me. But yeah, that's frustrating at times.

As for the Lucic fan's reaction, well he's a Lucic fan aka the epitome of ball bashing. You can't expect him to enjoy Monica's more subtle game.
