“To be honest, there were many different options. For about a month or a month and a half after the end of the season, I thought about who I would like to work with. I spoke with Gunther Bresnik, because he trains Gael. Bresnik was always with me and helped me. In 2021, I watched many of my matches, we talked about many issues. Everything went well and I decided to take it, “said the Ukrainian.

Elina also recounted how she met Andis Yuska:

We needed a person with whom there was mutual understanding and who could join the team. Somehow I came up with the idea for Andis Yuska. We spoke to him at a tournament, I don’t remember where, but I came up with the idea of ​​trying to work with him, why not. He had already completed his collaboration with Amanda Anisimova, but did not know if he already had a new room. My agent called Andis and we agreed that there would be trial weeks in Tenerife, and it worked quite well.
