Is this true or is it fake news?

So, for some reason I just come across this news here

http://tennistonic.com/tennis-news/?...wd,-Mladenovic

however I couldn't find it in any other source and the link they gave leads to nothing, so she may have just deleted the post (very understandable). Do you guys know if she really posted that? Because it's quite strong and with personality whether one agrees with it or not. I find it odd if this is real that it didn't come on GM.

Yes this is true. And i respect her for having character and guts for saying it out loud.

Never ever did i like Elinas tennis or stan her, but bcs of her character i will never bash her on GM and will always defend her if someone talks crap about her character or other nonsense on things concerning her personality.

I think she is a great respecting person off court especially. Just has what for my taste is unwatchable tennis.

Re: Is this true or is it fake news?

I`m following Elina`s social media closely, she didn`t post any of this. Her only official facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/elinasvitolinaofficial/

That text was posted on fake impostor facebook account after Muguruza-Mladenovic match. For some reason he/she choose Elina`s name for set-up and that quote was circulating on some forums and twitter. I visited that link at that time and remember for sure it was not Elina`s real page.

There is a reason this was never picked-up by any professional news orgs - they check their sources. By the way, you can see with the way that text is put together, that there is zero chance it was written up by TOP10 tennis player in a middle of RG, even if somebody wanted to say that, no respectable social media manager would let it through. It would be PR disaster.
