Two Ukrainian tennis players will stand up against each other in Round 3 of Australian Open. Elina Svitolina, the renowned athlete and Ukraine’s No.1, and junior Marta Kostyuk will cross swords in one of the world’s most prestigious tournaments.
For 15-year-old Kostyuk, every next match in this tournament is an improvement of her personal best; it’s the first time in her career that she’s been participating in a tournament of such level. Previously, she won the Junior Australian Open and then claimed her first victory in the adult version of the event.
The ‘Ukrainian derby’ is slated for January 19.
