There can be no two opinions that Stan Wawrinka won the Internet during the Corona period. On the women's side, the race was more open - and probably ended up with a tight second place for Elina Svitolina. Behind the well-deserved winner Daria Kasatkina, who has shown on Instagram that amazing skill that she had lost on the tennis court in the past few months.
Things were going better for Svitolina, in 2019 the Ukrainian reached the semi-finals in Wimbledon and at the US Open, and at the end of the season in Shenzhen there was even the final. This has had a benevolent effect on Svitolina's points account, and she will be allowed to keep the Wimbledon tournament until 2021. And in addition to the prize money, the counters for the WTA charts are obviously the biggest incentive for the 25-year-old from Odessa to take part in a tournament.
Halep and Kvitova with concerns about the US Open
Clarification is necessary, especially since the organizers in Palermo, where the event is due to start again on August 3, are apparently considering bonuses but no points to be distributed. "It's nice that everything is coming back," Svitolina said in an interview with a Ukrainian portal. "But there are still many questions. And I'm not the only one. ”In fact, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova, for example, have raised serious concerns about the US Open and the planned restrictions associated with it.
"At the moment, the conditions that are being offered to us are not ideal because there will be many tests, plus the isolation, it is not clear what will happen to the points or the prize money." I don’t know if it makes sense to play in the tournaments. ”
