Yastremska Balances Tennis Career with Family Life Amidst Drone Attacks in Ukraine

Yastremska and her family come from Odessa in southern Ukraine. The tennis player said on the sidelines of the WTA tournament in San Diego that she spent a week there after the tournament in Austria.

“I wouldn’t say it was a real break because usually they start massive attacks at 12 or at 1 or 2 in the morning,” Yastremska revealed in the press conference after her victory over USA’s Caroline Dolehide (6: 4, 5:7, 6:1).

Because of drone attacks, people in Odessa are always on guard. The Melbourne semi-finalist added: “You have to keep a close eye on the public information about whether drones are coming to us or not, so you stay awake quite late.”

During the week at home she had to hide in an underground car park three times because of attacks, Yastremska continued: “I would say I didn’t rest there much, but of course it was nice to go home and see my family .”

The sport continues on Thursday. In the round of 16, Yastremska will face Russian Anna Blinkova.
