Dayana Yastremska leaves Ukraine after spending two nights in undergroung parking

Ukrainian tennis player Dayana Yastremska revealed she spent two days in the underground parking before her parents sent her and her little sister out of Ukraine. Fortunately, the latest reports suggest that Yastremska and her sister have reached Romania and are safe now.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine. "After spending two nights in the underground parking, my parents made a decision at any cost to send me and my little sister out of Ukraine!

Mom, Dad, we love you very much, take care," Yastremska wrote on Instagram.

On Thursday, Ukrainian tennis player Lesia Tsurenko called out Russia and called Russian president Vladimir Putin a "dictator."

Also, Tsurenko added that it is "unacceptable" that the Ukrainians are dying "because of political ambitions of Russian dictator." "I would like to ask the entire tennis community to speak out against the war on their social media!

I ask everyone to support Ukraine in this difficult time. It’s just unacceptable that people in my country die because of political ambitions of Russian dictator!" Tsurenko tweeted. A day earlier, fellow Ukrainian tennis player Marta Kostyuk shared a powerful message on Instagram.

"Ukraine has its own History. Ukraine has its own Culture. Ukraine has its own Language. Ukraine has its own Nation. Ukraine has its own Territory. Ukraine is a sovereign Country. Ukraine is not a 'part of Russia,' it wasn't and will never be," Kostyuk posted on Instagram Story.

Elina Svitolina, the top-ranked player from Ukraine, also reacted to the Russian invasion. Svitolina was absolutely devastated and heartbroken as she tweeted the following.

Meanwhile, Yastremska last competed in Dubai last week.

Yastremska won three qualifying matches to earn a main draw place in Dubai, before she went on to reach the quarterfinal. Yastremska also competed in Australia, where she didn't enjoy much success as she picked up first round exits in Adelaide 2 and the Australian Open.
