43 winners def is no joke, wd. :yeah:
She already leads Svitolina in H2H but I am not buying your argument. I think what will happen is that these two will continue to have nail biting matches.Kenin was only 1 of 9 on break points, while Svit was 3 for 6.
Svit also hit 13 aces!!!
Kenin missed to many easy mid court shots by going for too much.
In a years time, 20 y/o Kenin will dominate Svit.
Yes, true. She only won YEC last year because everyone else was a walking zombie.Well she was shambolic at YEC. She only scraped that victory with determination and passion. Elina winning today and Benic losing today, you must be in ruins.
LOL! You will be wrecked for life if Svitolina wins a GS. She has already broken the QF curse. And no, most players were playing fine last year at YEC. Svitolina herself arrived completely out of form.Yes, true. She only won YEC last year because everyone else was a walking zombie.
As long as she doesn't win slams I'm fine.
Here's hoping the likes of Osaka and Andreescu can stop her because Serena won't be around forever.
Yes. And that's an aspect of Svitolina's game I like, there's nothing rational with her when she's confident, she'll jump for flat shots or give a defensive squash, will bring the opponent to rallies mid-court, will go down the line or crosscourt, all improvised. That's what makes it entertaining to me. Hence the surprise of this result, that I'm sure you relish 100%. :drool:Do you know what the word shambolic means?
It's hilarious that her knee injury that affects her movement and forces to abandon pushing in long rallies forced Elina to turn on ball bashing mode in couple matches in Beijing, including R1 vs Sevastova. Mostly defense got her through against Yafan, though. Had no business winning a set in that match, never mind 2 sets. Once she's back to being healthy, I doubt we will see Svitolina this aggressive too often again.Did we just witness Elina Svitolina play aggressive tennis
