Elina Svitolina explains why it is so difficult to play against Rybakina on grass

So far away was Elina Svitolina to ring the bell this Wednesday before Elena Rybakina who in her last press conference could only show acceptance of what happened. That’s what happens when you meet the woman who, today, possibly has the best serve on the entire circuit. And even more so on a surface like the grass of Wimbledonwhich so rewards this virtue.

“I had very few opportunities to get into the match, and I didn’t serve well either. Elena is a great hitter, she doesn’t let you in, I think the few opportunities I had were lost at the beginning of the first set, then she started to serve much better and hit the ball very well. It was very difficult because I feel that I am in good shape, but against this type of opponent it is very complicated. I tried to fight, to create new options, but she didn’t let me at any time. Now that I feel healthy again, I am looking forward to the second part of the season,” said the Ukrainian.
