Swiatek, according to Shevchenko, is young yet doing a lot.

Swiatek has backed Ukraine ever since Russian assault first began. Despite her best efforts, Swiatek says that she is disappointed to discover that some players appear to have forgotten about Ukraine. “I observed a decline in the memory of the conflict.

For two or three games, many players removed the ribbons they had been wearing since February. It’s a little erratic in my opinion. I kept and will keep this ribbon with me “said Swiatek.
