Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina

Ukraine's best female tennis player Elina Svitolina had her first match at the Gippsland Trophy in Melbourne, Australia.

Svitolina faced the representative of Germany Andrea Petkovic. The first set ended successfully for the Ukrainian player. The next one, in turn, started with the display of dominance from Petkovic. Nonetheless, after making six aces, three double faults, and seizing five out of eight breakpoints, Ukraine's top-ranked player managed to get the victory.

Svitolina's next opponent will be determined in the match between Jeļena Ostapenko and Danka Kovinic.
