Chances are Elina Svitolina won’t be part of that conversation.
“It’s OK not to have the attention,” Svitolina told ESPN.com at the Tie Break Tens event she won at Madison Square Garden a week ago.
Svitolina has established herself as the most consistent winner on the WTA Tour.
The creator of the longest unbeaten streak of 2017 (15 matches), Svitolina is off to a spectacular start this year.
If there’s one caveat, it’s that Svitolina has had trouble producing and sustaining her A-game at Grand Slam events.
Svitolina made the French Open quarterfinals last year and the fourth round at both Wimbledon and the US Open.
Following her loss in Melbourne, Svitolina was asked what she might need to do to take the next step at a Grand Slam.
Svitolina said her team adjusts the work schedule and tries to do things “a little differently” ahead of each Grand Slam event.
Since the start of 2017, no one has won more titles than Elina Svitolina.
“I never thought I would get to this level, playing in places like Wimbledon and Madison Square Garden,” Svitolina said.
