Svitolina faced American Sofia Kenin who replaced Bianca Andreescu from Canada after she withdrew from the tournament due to injury.
Despite the fact that Svitolina had secured her first place in the group and reached the semifinals of the tournament, she managed to win the match without losing a single set. Although the match turned out to be very intense.
In the semifinals of the WTA Final Tournament, Elina Svitolina will play against Belinda Bencic from Switzerland.
"There was a lot of physical strength in this match. I tried to focus on what I need to do on the court, winning every point. Sometimes you don't play better tennis, so you have to overcome such obstacles. That's what I did, and in the end, I got a little bit for it. The semi-final against Bencic? It will be another difficult match. I will try to be ready, get some rest and prepare for the match,” Svitolina said.
As we reported earlier, in her previous match, Elina faced fifth world racquet Simona Halep from Romania. Ukrainian was able to win the match and secured her place in the semifinals of the WTA Final Tournament in Shenzhen.
