Yastremska, Svitolina in Fed Cup rift

First, the Ukrainian tennis federation said Elina Svitolina and Dayana Yastremska would skip next week’s Group I zonal ties because their agent was too greedy.

The players say that’s … not really it.


Svitolina, who didn’t play Fed Cup in 2018, points to the neck/shoulder issue that troubled her in Melbourne.

For Yastremska, who is just 18, there’s a complicated story involving her mother and a terrible eye injury caused by an exploding champagne bottle.

She’s playing this week in Thailand. As for Fed Cup, it seems they were able to work something out? We’ll see.
