Unused American sends Svitolina out of the Australian Open


Melbourne. Fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina from Ukraine must for the third time in a row see herself defeated in a grand slam tournament by a player outside the top-25 in the world rankings.

On Monday, Svitolina lost to the unseeded Jessica Pegula of the United States at the Australian Open.

The American, who is number 61 on the world rankings, won 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 over the former world setter.

The 26-year-old Pegula has been in great shape during this year’s tournament in Melbourne.

In the first round, she eliminated 12th-seeded Victoria Azarenka from Belarus, and in her next two matches, she lost only four games.

This is the second time that Jessica Pegula is participating in the Australian Open. In the quarterfinals, the opponent will be Jennifer Brady from the USA, who on Monday defeated the Croatian Donna Vekic in two sets.
