- ‘War made me mentally stronger … I look at things differently’
Elina Svitolina says living through a time when her country is at war has made her stronger after pulling off one of the biggest wins of her career, defeating Iga Swiatek, the top seed, 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-2 in a dramatic 2hr 51min battle to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals.
“I think war made me stronger and also made me mentally stronger,” Svitolina said. “Mentally I don’t take difficult situations as like a disaster, you know? There are worse things in life.”
