The first racket of Ukraine and the sixth racket of the world Elina Svitolina can be excluded from the national team of Ukraine.
This was announced by Vice-President of tennis Federation of Ukraine Yevhen Sukhin.
According to him, the team does not need someone who does not want to play.
“At the next meeting of the Presidium of the Federal office will consider the issue of further performance by Elina Svitolina in the fed Cup: to invite or not to invite her in the future. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their actions.
The tennis Federation of Ukraine does not force anyone to play for the national team. If a player says “I don’t want to, I can’t,” we’re not going to force him. Although it has a lot of leverage. But we are not affected. If a person does not want – do not. The team does not need someone who does not want to play.
A great attitude to Svitolina as a person – she’s a beautiful girl. But I remind you that unlike the same Yastremsky, which was developed without the help of the Federal customs administration, sponsored Elina was Yuri Sapronov, first Vice-President of the Federation at the time. It turns out that she is grown up by the tennis Federation of Ukraine, from the beginning to the end,” said Zukin in an interview DolgopolovaLi.
