Elina Svitolina will come to Sofia to support Gael Monfils, says agent

Stefan Gyurov, a member of the Top Five Management Company is the agent of Elina Svitolina and Daniil Medvedev and he is at the Sofia Open this week, working for the event that is being held for the fourth time "It's an extremely strong tournament," said Gyurov.

"We have a lot of interesting matches. This is good for the entire Bulgarian tennis because in Sofia we will see great players. Elina was here for the WTA Tournament of Champions a few years ago, she and her family love Sofia and I think she will be here with her father.

Elina is very popular among Russian fans and she will probably meet them. Who is the favorite for the tournament? Daniil Medvedev, but also Karen Khachanov is in unbelievable shape. Wawrinka will want to show up in Sofia and also Gael Monfils can make some upsets."

Monfils and Svitolina have been dating for a while and they supported each other on the grounds at the Australian Open. The Frenchman is focusing on having a great run there: "I feel great. I started well at the Australian Open.

I expect a very tough battle against an experienced player like Victor Troicki. I hope to be ready for him. The field is very strong, the Sofia Open players are great. I hope to play many good matches this year. There are young stars and high-level experienced players.

It's unpredictable to say who will win the title. I am here to win as many matches as possible." ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
