Easy peasy! No.5 seed Elina Svitolina makes winning start at Roland Garros and past Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3 with 25 winners.
“I think it was quite tough match for the first round to have Yaroslava was quite tough draw,” Svitolina said. “I lost to her in Wimbledon last year, but I knew I’m playing much better, physically I’m much better, stronger. That’s why I had a little bit more confidence than the last time. I was a bit nervous, but in the same time calm and tried to play my tennis and bring my game today.”
Elina broke serve in the final Shvedova service game of each set to secure the 76-minute victory, as she also rallied from an early break down in the first.
