Elina Svitolina comes into Rome with a 2-2 win/loss on clay. The quality is there as her form has taken a dip but after a long day waiting around in the rain of Rome when she finally got on talk oh my she did not mess around!
Eli is one of my favourite players on the tour I do believe she will win majors but she’s young and her title defence has been great so far!
From the Off after saving break points it was no nonsense and when she is in this mood there aren’t many better players to watch.
The way she paints the lines with the ball whether she is using forehand or backhand is incredible and through in her movement as well sometimes you just have to say ‘too good’
Even when she was up a set and break she screamed after missing a pass winner, confidence!
A love hold and a backhand winner down the line to finish! Exceptional 💪🏻
