Who else is Jelena, who is a great danger to Iga Świątek? This is the 22nd racket of the world at the moment Yelena Ostapenko. An interesting tennis player, she rose to fame recently when government funding was cut off in her home country due to her competing in events with representatives from Russia and Belarus. Of course the tennis player can handle this arrangement, it was a somewhat symbolic gesture, but it indicated some turmoil that could affect the 2017 French Open champion for various reasons, as well as some other athletes from this country.
Ostapenko acts honestly and according to his conscience, although he is in a difficult situation. Her father (died in 2020) Evgeny was playing at Metallurg Zaporozhye, where her grandmother still lives. Her mother is the Russian tennis coach Yelena Yakovleva, anchored in Riga.
He has a big heart
In the previous season, the Iga competitor was assisted by her Ukrainian doubles partner Ludmila Kichenok and coach Stas Khmarsky. Among other things, offer your home and residence in Riga. On the other hand, in the winter, she also did not object to congratulating Arina Sabalense on her social media on her victory at the Australian Open. Because he respects her. Jelena has always shown that people, not politics, are most important to her. He has a big heart that opens up to different ways and people.
Miami’s red and white power show?
Rybakina has beaten Swiatek three times in the past three months: at the World Tennis League in Dubai, at the Australian Open, and in Indian Wells. Ostapenko last competed with the Polish woman in 2022 in Dubai, when she was the last to win against her before her impressive 37-fight streak. Earlier, in 2021, she also beat her in Indian Wells, and even earlier, in Raszyna’s first senior season, gave her only two matches on the lawn in Birmingham. She has a 3-0 record with our champion.
Fourth round and quarter-finals
Of course, in the measure of the whole, it does not represent the class that it is. She won the Grand Slam tournament, but Iga has already won three such victories. Ostapenko plays unevenly, doing well only in singles tournaments, which, of course, means a much lower rating. However, he has the ability to hit and the speed of the ball, which causes problems for Swiatek. Her forehand and backhand weighs and takes away our tennis player’s time so that he can easily control the exchanges. On different surfaces and continents, as Head to Head shows, he can be dangerous in the playground.
It can be said that Jeleny has recently changed roles. Once competition from Latvia came to Świątek, whoever represents Kazakhstan has now stepped into her shoes. In Miami, they are both theoretically on our hero’s path. Iga could face No. 24 Ostapenko in the fourth round, and Rybakina in the quarterfinals. And this path “Via Jellini” will certainly be difficult. Ideally, the Polish woman would soon defeat both. And if it can be solved in one fell swoop in Florida.
