Roland-Garros R1: Svitolina d. V. Williams 6-3 6-3

Go Elina

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

I did tell everyone that this draw is perfect for Elina.

Venus moved like a pensioner , easy match vs Kozlova and Muguruza looked powerless and struggled vs ITF expert Townsend.

She’s practically in the 2nd week.

It wasn’t a bad match Venus just could not hold her serve, but Elaine was hitting some really good returns.

Venus should play a grass warm up otherwise she’ll find herself crashing out of Wimbledon early again! She won’t play now for 5 weeks...

Re: Roland-Garros R1: Svitolina d. V. Williams 6-3 6-3

As I said before, you just wish Venus had incorporated these skills 10 years ago, 20 years ago even. Venus was willing to play measured percentage tennis, but now her physical condition has eroded so much that it hurt her here. She can't afford to try to rally point after point.

A brief flash of hope when she got up the break and then she never really opened her shoulders to press that advantage and Svitolina stepped into the court and burned her.

Tough to look forward to grass when her serve is so benign.

Re: Roland-Garros R1: Svitolina d. V. Williams 6-3 6-3

Already looking forward to Stephens v. Svitolina, could be a massive match.

Question is, will Elina's body hold up if she continues to move through the draw?

Mladenovic | Kerber | V. Williams | Osaka | Kontaveit
S. Williams | Pliskova | Svitolina | Muguruza | Halep | Wozniacki | Stephens
Vekic | Abanda | Konjuh | Schnyder


Davenport | Pierce

Completely expected outcome on clay no matter how few matches Svitolina has played. She seemed completely unhampered and was scampering about all over the place so I think she'll be absolutely fine for a deep run. Hopefully Venus had a nice time hanging out in Paris and then she'll probably just head home to Florida for a few weeks I suppose.

Venus was making odd decisions and was incapable of holding serve and Svitolina played well. Kinda all that needs to be said on this match

Not Venus losing 6-3 from 3-1 up in the second....

Congrats E.

Oh Venus!

Well done Elina!

I hate these kind of R1 match ups!

I don't mean to troll, but I really don't understand what motivates Venus to keep on playing.
