Personal life[edit] Svitolina was born in Odessa
to parents Mikhaylo Svitolin (a former wrestler) and Olena Svitolina (a former competitive rower).[2][3] She has an older brother named Yulian.[4][2] When Svitolina was a child Yulian was playing tennis, and Elina then also started to play tennis because she felt that her brother got a lot of attention because he played tennis and she anticipated that if she were to start to play tennis as well this would catch the attention of her father.[2] She started playing tennis at the age of five.[4][5] Svitolina and her family moved to Kharkiv
when she was 13 years old, after businessman Yuriy Sapronov had become her sponsor.[2] Sapronov had seen her play at one of his children's tournaments when she was aged 12 and was impressed, leading to his investment in her training and further professional development.[2] Svitolina officially still resides in Kharkiv; however, she trains abroad, which limits her presence in Odessa
and/or Kharkiv.[2] Svitolina claims that in her early career she turned down offers to change her citizenship in exchange for "large financial sums".[2] Career[edit] Early career[edit] Svitolina's greatest achievement as a junior was winning the French Open girls event in 2010, beating Tunisian Ons Jabeur
Ons Jabeur
in the final.[6] She reached her first professional singles final at the ITF $25,000 tournament in Kharkiv
in May 2010.[7] Svitolina also reached the final of the girls' singles event at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, where she lost to Eugenie Bouchard. Svitolina qualified for the US Open. She was defeated in the first round by 12th seed and eventual quarterfinalist Ana Ivanovic. She won the WTA 125K Royal Indian Open title in Pune, defeating Andreja Klepač, Rutuja Bhosale, Luksika Kumkhum, former top 10 player Andrea Petkovic, and Japanese veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm

Angelique Kerber
in the first round. She won her first WTA title in at the Baku Cup by beating Shahar Pe'er; in doing so, Svitolina became the first teenager to win a WTA tournament since February 2012.[8] The victory also translated into a jump of 32 spots in the WTA rankings, landing her at No. 49 on 29 July 2013.[9] 2014: Ascendancy, second WTA title[edit] At the Australian Open, Svitolina defeated two-time Grand Slam champion and three-time Australian Open

Svitolina began the clay court season by capturing her third title of the year in İstanbul. Rebounding from a disappointing loss to Zheng Saisai in the first round of Madrid, Svitolina then proceeded to reach her second Premier-5-level final of the year, and fourth overall, in Rome. After defeating two top-5 players en route in Karolína Plíšková and Garbiñe Muguruza, she faced off against Simona Halep, whom she defeated in three sets to claim the title.

and Caroline Wozniacki. Svitolina's first loss of the season at Premier-5 level came the following week in the third round of Cincinnati, losing to Julia Görges.

in three sets. Despite missing a large part of the Asian swing, Svitolina still secured her place at the year-end WTA Finals in Singapore, making her the first Ukrainian ever to do so. As the third seed in Beijing, Svitolina progressed to her eighth quarterfinal of the year with relative ease, defeating wildcard Zhu Lin, recent Wuhan
finalist Ashleigh Barty
Ashleigh Barty
and Elena Vesnina. There, she was defeated by eventual champion Caroline Garcia

on a final set tiebreak. Svitolina was drawn into the Red Group at the WTA Finals, alongside Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki

She finished the year ranked at No. 6. 2018: Brisbane International title and Australian Open quarterfinal[edit] Svitolina began her 2018 season by capturing the Brisbane International title, defeating qualifier Aliaksandra Sasnovich

to advance to her first Australian Open
Australian Open
quarterfinal where she was defeated by Belgian Elise Mertens
Elise Mertens
6–4, 6–0.[18] Playing style, equipment, and coaches[edit] Svitolina worked with Iain Hughes for two and a half years, and chose to split from him in November 2016.[4][19] In February 2016, Svitolina appointed former world No. 1, Justine Henin, as a member of her coaching team.[20] In late 2016, Svitolina announced that Gabriel Urpi would be her new coach, with Thierry Ascione replacing Henin as her new coaching consultant.[21] Svitolina has a complete baseline game. Her groundstrokes are very consistent and are hit with moderate-to-big power. Her backhand is her stronger side, especially down the line, but both of her groundstrokes penetrate the court well. She demonstrates good movement around the court and is capable of hitting very accurate shots on the run. She possesses a consistent serve but isn't exceptionally fast. She improved her serve in the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Her weakness is probably her volleying at the net as she has been known to struggle with this. However, she has good reactions and can accelerate well across the court to deal with short balls. Her favourite surfaces are grass and clay.[4] Svitolina uses Wilson racquets and is sponsored by Nike, having previously been sponsored by Italian sports apparel company Ellesse and French apparel Lacoste.[22] Career statistics[edit] Main article: Elina Svitolina
