Svitolina won the first three thousand euros for the Ukrainian army at the expense of Russia

Svitolina initially did not want to play against players from Russia and Belarus, because, according to her, the tennis association waited too long with a statement related to the war in Ukraine. It was Tuesday, after which he decided to go to the track.

Potapova, who currently plays under a neutral flag, was awarded only three games: 6-2, 6-1.

“I’m in a very sad mood, but I’m happy to play tennis here,” said Svitolina, who visibly struggled to suppress her emotions. “I am focused. From the start it was important to be ready for anything that came my way.”

As he previously announced, the prize money for this holiday will go to the Ukrainian army in the amount of 3000 euros. The winner of the tournament has finished more than ten times.

Svitolina, 27, who repeatedly insisted she should not blame her Russian opponents for denouncing the war, won the tournament two years ago. Former number three in the world took first place in Mexico this week.
