Elina Svitolina Wins First Tie Break Tens Competition in the United States

On Monday, March 6, 2018, Elina Svitolina triumphed over Shuai Zhang to win the $250,000 champion’s prize at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden.

Elina Svitolina has won her first Tie Break Tens tournament this evening, following a thrilling battle with Shuai Zhang in the final at New York’s legendary sports venue, Madison Square Garden.

Having seen off Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe in the previous rounds of the new fast-paced, short-form tennis competition, Elina Svitolina dominated in all of her matches to take home the champion’s check of $250,000.

Elina Svitolina Beats Shuai Zhang to Win First Tie Break Tens Competition in the United States

“It’s amazing to win the first ever Tie Break Tens tournament in the US,” said Elina Svitolina. “I had a lot of fun out there on the court and it was great to see the crowd get behind the speed and intensity of the game.”

It was a night of surprises, with Serena Williams losing out to Shuai Zhang in a closely contested semi-final, despite a promising start.

“Congratulations to Elina Svitolina on an amazing victory,” said Tie Break Tens CEO, Felicity Barnard. “Tonight’s tournament proved to be a thrilling display of elite tennis from some of the world’s greatest female players; a great debut for Tie Break Tens in the United States and hopefully just the start in encouraging a wider audience to get behind the sport.”

Tie Break Tens tournaments are held over one day and involve eight players competing in a knock-out format, with each match consisting of a super tie-break to ten points. The New York competition follows successful tournaments in London, Vienna, Madrid, and Melbourne.

      Yes, I was there last night.  The matches were intense with powerhouse players: Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Marion Bartoli, Elina Svitolina, CoCo Vandeweghe, Sorana Cirstea, Shuai Zhang and Daniela Hantuchová.  It was awesome.
