 Svitolina was defeated in a tense match and ended her performance at the tournament in Indian Wells

Elina’s offender was the American Emma Navarro, who had previously knocked out another Ukrainian, Lesya Tsurenko. /p>

The first racket of Ukraine Elina Svitolina failed to overcome the third round of the WTA 1000 tournament in Indian Wells (USA).

29-year-old native of Odessa (No. 17 WTA ), who in the second round of the competition started with a victory over the Czech Katerzina Sinyakova (No. 41 WTA), lost to the American Emma Navarro (No. 23 WTA) in the 1/16 finals. /p>

The intense three-set match lasted 2 hours and ended in Elina’s defeat with the score 1:6, 6:4, 3:6.

During the entire match, Svitolina served through once, made 4 double faults and converted 4 out of 6 break points. This was the first head-to-head meeting between the tennis players.

Note that Navarro defeated the second Ukrainian woman in a row at the Indian Wells tournament. In the second round match, she beat Lesya Tsurenko (No. 37 WTA) with a score of 4:6, 7:5, 7:5.

In the 1/8 finals, the American will play against the second racket of the world, Belarusian Arina Sabalenka, who, due to the full-scale invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine, is allowed to compete only in a neutral status.

We would like to remind you that Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk (No. 32 WTA), who has already qualified for the 1/1 8 finals. For a ticket to the quarterfinals, the 21-year-old native of Kyiv will fight with the “neutral” Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (No. 24 WTA).
