Taking it one game at a time
DEFENDING Brisbane International champion Elina Svitolina says she’s not getting too far ahead of herself when it comes to an assault on claiming her first grand slam title.
The Ukrainian world No 4 is among the favourites for the Australian Open after claiming a WTA-high five titles in 2017 winning in Brisbane.
“I had a great week in Brisbane. Of course, I’m confident,” Svitolina said. “But I try to take it one match at a time, be really focused on my game, and don’t have, like, crazy thoughts in my head.”
Svitolina will begin against a qualifier.
