Elina Svitolina recently talked about herself in an interview with Vogue Ukraine, focusing first of all about the family.

The Ukrainian tennis player explained: "We hope that Gael and I have another couple of children and that our daughter Skai continues to develop Ukrainian tennis, my mission is to make concrete efforts to make this happen."

The Ukrainian athlete is also focusing on her work in her association created in 2019: "I want to carry out all my tasks, from sport to charity, to help our military, children and all Ukrainians. Children continue to play tennis, they can have those bright moments in these difficult times."

Elina then recounted the moments of her youth: at the age of 11 she chose to leave tennis to dedicate herself to gymnastics, but in a short time she wanted to change her mind again.

Just a month later, she Svitolina tried to play tennis again and at 13 she moved to have the opportunity to devote herself professionally to racket sports. Now, one of her closest goals is to participate in the Paris Olympic Games in 2024, which will take place on the clay of Roland Garros.
