Svitolina is one of the tennis players who has most positioned herself against the Russian military invasion in Ukraine, even criticizing Wimbledon for allowing Russians and Belarusians to play. After beating the polka Iga Swiatek and qualifying for her second Semifinals at Wimbledon, the Ukrainian dedicated the win to her country.

This means a lot. I know that a lot of people in Ukraine were watching me. I received many messages after the last game. I am very happy that I was able to bring you some happiness. On the internet there are many videos of children watching me play and that melts my heart. I just want to bring some happiness to the Ukrainians.

“I think the war has made me stronger, especially mentally. I don't take difficult situations as a disaster, because there are worse things in life. I take them more calmly. Having a child and the war have made me a different person. I see things differently”, added the Ukrainian.

About whether her husband, also a tennis player Gael Monfilswill travel to London for the Semi-Finals, Svitolina said she will let him "stay home for now."

He is happy there, watching the games with our daughter and with my parents. He is recovering and preparing for the American tour. It's okay, she let him stay home for now.

Finally, the Ukrainian spoke about her daughter.

My daughter is with Gael at home. I have spoken with her by video call after the game. She was too distracted with ice cream, so I wasn't the priority. She's still at an age where she doesn't care if I win or lose.
