Elina Svitolina won the third title of 2017 in Istanbul

Elina Svitolina, EMPIRE Tennis Academy member in Trnava, justified her billing as the Istanbul Cup's top seed by comprehensively beating Elise Mertens 6-2 6-4 in little over an hour in Sunday's final. The pair had never played each other on the WTA Tour, but Svitolina was always in command en route to winning her third title of 2017.

“This was something very different," Elina Svitolina said in her post-match press conference. "Last time I played on clay, I got injured in the early part of the season, so it was difficult for me to come back on this surface and trust my body and my legs. This year, I prepared better, took more time off, and I was very happy that physically, I could make it through this week. Clay is very tough, and it can kill your body if you’re not prepared.”

Elina Svitolina started the season with titles at the Taiwan Open and the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, but Istanbul has special significance for the Ukrainian youngster, who won her first singles title of any kind in this very city - at a 10K ITF Challenger.
