Elina Svitolina Reveals The Shot She’d Borrow From Serena Williams’ Arsenal

Soon after World Number five, Elina Svitolina concluded her title-less drought since November 2018 in Monterrey, Mexico, the tennis tour was called off amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. The Ukrainian was in good form in the month of February but, unfortunately, she couldn’t exhibit all her tennis skills to the fullest in the 2020 season.

A complete baseliner and the defensive player on the women’s tour, Svitolina was asked if she could borrow any shot from her fellow professionals, which one would it be. Turns out, the Ukrainian champion envies the ferocious forehand of Serena Williams.

The pair have locked horns six times in their careers. Elina’s sole victory against Serena came at Rio Olympics 2016. Recently, they met in the semifinals of US Open 2019. It was Svitolina’s career-best performance at Flushing Meadows.

Also, Svitolina revealed her admiration towards 22-time Grand Slam champion Steffi Graf. She would love to incorporate her groundstrokes into her game.

“Definitely, it would be a forehand of Serena Williams. And if I had the opportunity to choose another one, then I would choose it from the shots of Steffi Graf. Although I never saw her play live, I would choose her forehand and her backhand,” she told BTU. (The quotes have been translated)

25-year-old Svitolina is not in a hurry to win her first Grand Slam, but she desperately wants one. She feels that gradually gaining experience and getting adapted to the flow of the game will aid her to make her breakthrough on the Majors front.

Presently, she’s playing an exhibition event in Berlin. She beat Anastasija Sevastova in the semifinals of the grass-court exhibition in Germany.

“I think it was a good match with a lot of good rallies. For what was kind of my first match [since the tour’s hiatus], it took a little bit of time for me to get into the fighting spirit, and Anastasija is a great fighter. In the end, it was a good match. This year, we missed the grass-court season. But I’m just happy to be here and to come back and play on the grass,” she said. (as quoted by WTA)
And now, she has set up a final against two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova.
