Elina Svitolina will not play the rest of the season. The 27-year-old Ukrainian announced via Twitter that she and her husband Gaël Monfils are expecting a baby in October. Svitolina, the current number 27 in the world, is therefore currently marginalized.
“Full of love and happiness, we announce that we are expecting a girl in October,” Svitolina captioned a photo of her and Monfils on Twitter. Svitolina and Monfils, the world number 21 among men, got married in the spring of 2021.
Earlier this week, Svitolina announced that she would not be participating in Roland Garros this year. The tennis star then said he had other things on his mind after the Russian invasion of his home country. “Right now my focus is on my family and my foundation. It is mentally exhausting to see these terrible things happen to my countrymen and my family. “
By the end of March, Svitolina, a former world number 3, had already announced that she would take a break to relax. He did not indicate when he wanted to return to the tennis court. Svitolina last played in the prestigious Miami tournament. There he lost in the second round to Heather Watson.
