Elina Svitolina aims another deep run at Rogers Cup in Montreal

Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina is happy with her recent results. At the Tokyo Olympics, Svitolina achieved her goal of winning a medal after she beat Elena Rybakina in the bronze medal match. "It's been a busy July for me, and lots of great memories and great events.

It's amazing to experience everything in such a short period of time, but I'm very happy," Svitolina said, per Max Gao. Svitolina is now looking forward to playing at the Montreal Masters. In 2017, Svitolina won the Rogers Cup in Toronto and the following year made the Montreal semifinal.

"It was a really special one for me because I had a really tough draw ... I beat some really great players, and for me, it was a great week. I have great memories of coming to Canada," Svitolina noted.

Svitolina arrived to Montreal confident

Svitolina didn't win gold medal in Tokyo but still she was happy with bronze medal.

"Coming here, for sure my goal was to win a gold medal, and it was extremely tough to lose in the semi-finals and then try to regroup and come again against a top player who is playing really good,” Svitolina said, per the ITF website.

“To win such a big battle for the bronze medal definitely means the world to me. Everyone in Ukraine is watching – we don’t win so many medals, you know – so for sure, it’s very special for me and for Ukraine."

Svitolina felt proud of herself after her result in Tokyo. "I hoped to win an Olympic medal for my country – and that’s not easy," Svitolina said. "All of the competitors were fighting, all of the matches were tough battles – this is what you expect at the Olympics, right? I was upset to have lost in the semi-finals but now I’m happy having won the bronze. I’m really proud of myself this week, and winning bronze crowns it for sure."
