Svitolina Powers Past Golubic to Round 2 of Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia – Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina dismissed Viktorija Golubic 6-1, 6-2, and advanced to the second round of the Australian Open on Tuesday.

The sixth seed scored her first win of the season, overpowering her Swiss opponent in just about an hour.

The WTA Finals champion, who lost her Brisbane opener to the previous year’s runner-up, Aliaksandra Sasnovich, powered past Golubic with nine aces and 25 winners.

She opened two of her first three service games with a double fault, while Golubic delivered a few impressive dropshots and one-handed backhands.

The Swiss also collected 22 unforced errors to only 10 winners, with her Ukrainian opponent emerging from a sequence of three consecutive breaks with a 3-1 lead.

Golubic could not wrench back the control of the game from her after this point, although she had started the second set confidently.

The Dubai and Rome champion finished the match off efficiently and will now play against Slovakia’s Viktoria Kuzmova.
