Elina Svitolina: 'Video with Roger Federer and Gael Monfils was natural'

In a press conference in Rome, Elina Svitolina commented on Roger Federer's video bomb during the video posted by the Ukrainian and Gael Monfils. "It was actually very natural. Gael is very funny, very easygoing. They are good friends.

That's why it came up very, very funny. Hopefully, you guys enjoyed it. This Instagram account is normally for fun, to share with fans, to show them the ATP Tour and WTA Tour, fun stuff what we can show", said Svitolina, who has triumphed in the Rome Open the last two years."

I really enjoy the atmosphere", she said. "Any time of the day, any time of the week when you play here, the atmosphere is amazing. The fans are making it very special. I would say it's the loudest and the most exciting when you play in front of Italian fans.

It brings the best of me. Each time I step on court here, I really enjoy the fight. Even though I had some really tough matches, but I went through them. That's what's special about it." Svitolina also gave her views on Agnieszka Radwanska's farewell to the professional tennis: "I remember I had very, very tough matches against her.

She was a very tricky player. I think very entertainment for tennis. It was great to have her and great to have some battles against her in the past. She's also a very, very nice person to share the court with. For me, you know, she's a great champion. She achieved a lot in her life. Yeah, it's great to have had that player on the tour with us."
