ELINA SVITOLINA AIMING FOR ANOTHER GRAND SLAM FIRST AT US OPEN

Elina Svitolina has a new attitude when it comes to the Grand Slams. The Ukrainian has reached the second week at Flushing Meadows and is coming off her first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon.

“I feel good now. I'm enjoying playing on the court,” she said of the US Open. “Enjoying the atmosphere maybe a little bit more. I have a little bit less pressure now. That's maybe what's changed. For the rest not much. I've been playing on Armstrong last year a lot, as well. That's nice. I like that court. I think I haven't lost a match on that court yet. I have a perfect record.”

Svitolina will face Madison Keys on Ashe stadium in the fourth round. Keys is playing very well, winning Cincinnati two weeks ago. But Svitolina beat Keys in three sets in their the fourth-round meeting at the Australian Open.“I think it's going to be another big challenge for me. Each time I play against her, it's a tough battle,” Svitolina said. “I have to prepare well. For me important just to stay focused on what I have to do on the court. It's the fourth round, so I have to enjoy. Have to be ready for her big shots.”

Svitolina says she's not going around a lot on her off days. "Since I'm with Gael, it's more focus, saving energy. Not much. I know the restaurants, few restaurants around the hotel. That's pretty much it," she said. "Emotionally maybe I'm feeling a little bit fresher and that's why I'm more relaxed. Maybe that's why it works."
