Elina Svitolina, Ukraine's top tennis player defeated Madison Keys in the game of U.S. Open. It was the round of the last 16.
It took the Ukrainian two sets and 73 minutes to beat the American. After a tense struggle, Svitolina eventually grabbed the victory (7:5, 6:4).
"I made really good serves in the match with Keys. I also showed great footwork. I'm really satisfied with how stable the victory was. I tried to stay in focus. I'd say that in this tournament, my performance is good enough, but I don't really pay much time to evaluate the level of my game. I've got another big fight with Johanna Konta up ahead. We've always had tough matches, and I'll try to show my best", the Ukrainian said.
The quarterfinal game between Svitolina and Konta is slated for August 3.
