Tennis Elina Svitolina Reveals The Shot She’d Borrow From Serena Williams’ Arsenal Published 4 weeks ago on July 15, 2020 By Caroline Crosby 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 his good form in the month of February, but unfortunately, she couldn’t exhibit her all her tennis skills in the 2020 season. The complete baseliner and the defensive player on the women’s tour Svitolina was asked if she could borrow any shot from the other professionals on the tour, which one would it be. 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.

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 slowly and steadily by gaining experience and getting adapted to the flow of the game, it will aid her to make her breakthrough on the Major courts.

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.
