Former world No. 3 Elina Svitolina has been fully vaccinated and she says she would have no problems with getting a third shot. Svitolina, now ranked at No. 15 in the world, is set to kick off her 2022 season in Australia. “Even if they tell me that I have to get a third shot, I would be happy to do that, because I see now so many new cases – and lots of players.
Lots of our friends are getting Covid, so it’s quite tough right now,” Svitolina told News Corp. Svitolina is happy to see some of the biggest names of the game preparing to play in Australia. "It’s amazing to see so many good players signing to play from the beginning of the season.
Everyone’s trying to be ready for the first (grand slam) tournament, for Melbourne, so it’s a really good field and it’s going to be really tough from the beginning of the tournament," Svitolina said.

"There’s no time for adjustments – you have to be ready from the first round, mentally, physically, so this is very exciting, I think, for the tournament and for players as well”.
Svitolina married Gael Monfils this past July and she described as a "special moment" for the two of them. "It was a very special moment for me and Gael. That month was very busy, for both of us. We had our wedding and the next day we had to fly to Tokyo straightaway, so no big celebrations, but in the end it was very special," Svitolina said.
"We shared this moment with our family and our close friends. It was a really small wedding and it was super special … definitely this moment will last forever in our memories”. Svitolina, who hasn't yet won a Grand Slam, has twice made the quarterfinal at Melbourne Park.
