I first heard about Marta when she won the title in Melbourne. She is a fighter, fights to the end, we were able to see it. Well, she certainly has a great future, and we’ll hear about it. To be the fourth seed? It’s too easy, all I play against you quite freely, you need to be prepared for difficult fights from the start. There are advantages, I try to stay positive, play one match at a time,” said Svitolina.
