Kostyuk shows huge potential for bigger to come
At 18, Kostyuk is already one of the youngest players in the top 100, and she will climb to a career-high ranking of No.65 after Paris.
Judging from her performance in Paris, where she upset former winner Garbine Muguruza from Spain in the first round, and gave the defending champion a real test in the fourth round, the young Ukrainian has the potential to go far.
Roland-Garros was only her fifth Grand Slam event and with time and experience, she was expected to become even more of a threat to the biggest names.
With Ivan Ljubicic – the coach of Roger Federer – as her manager, and working closely with her mother Talina, a former tennis professional herself, she has all the right tools to succeed.
