Elina Svitolina – about Djokovic’s act: “We live in a free world, so why not express your opinion?”

Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina (No. 192 WTA) commented on the act of Novak Djokovic from Serbia, who made an inscription about Kosovo on a video camera after defeating Alexander Kovacevic (ATP No. 114) at the start of Roland Garros.

“We live in a free world, so why not express your opinion about something? I think that if you stand for something, you think this idea is right, then you should say. If you are sitting with a friend, talking, you will express your opinion, and he will express his. So why not?

You know, returning to politics in sports, I think that all Ukrainians think that all this is very connected, because we are all people.

We all know a little about the politics of our country, we hear something about it here, something there. For me, it’s just a part of human life, politics, sports, different things. This is so, ”said Svitolina.
