Ukraine joker Elina Svitolina, who fired four Grand Slam champions in her fairy tale run to the Wimbledon semi-finals after her maternity break, thinks the stars are aligning in her quest for a first major title .

The 28-year-old can reach a first slam final by beating Marketa Vondrousova on Thursday and the former world No. 3 said a fresh approach to her career after the war in Ukraine and becoming a mother in October has helped.

“The war has made me stronger and also mentally stronger. I don’t take difficult situations as a disaster. There are worse things in life. I am calmer,” she added.

“I also think, because I’ve just started playing again, I have different pressures. I want to win. I have this huge motivation to get back to the top. But I think having a child and the war have made some me a different person.
