Ukraine’s tennis player, renowned champion Elina Svitolina once again crosses swords with the world’s current No.1 Simona Halep. The Ukrainian and the Romanian will sort things out in the third match of the Red Group of WTA event in Singapore, which kicks off 2 p.m. Kyiv time.
The game is going to be especially interesting as both of players will not be happy with anything else but victory – not to mention their ongoing ‘rivalry that has captivated tennis fans during the 2017 season’, as wtatennis.com puts it.
Svitolina had her ups this year, but it seems like it's the time of downs now. She already lost two games in this tournament by now must win; otherwise it’s over for her, and in this case, it’s Halep who proceeds into the semifinals. ‘I’ve got to defeat her in two sets. I’ll do my best to do whatever depends on me. I expected more from myself in Singapore; now, I have nothing to expect anymore,’ the Ukrainian said before the game.
