“It feels amazing. Coming into this week, I didn’t really have any expectations, I was just trying to start a new tournament and take one match at a time and here I am again holding this trophy… I was very pleased with the way I was playing here. Coming into this tournament is always very tricky, you need to be ready to expect the unexpected. I was very pleased with how I handled the pressure this week,” Svitolina said.
It is worth noting that last year Svitolina also won this tournament. So far, the fourth-ranked female tennis player has won eleven tournaments.
