During this time, tennis understandably took a backseat as Svitolina focused on the impending joy of motherhood.

Additionally, she channeled her efforts into raising funds for war relief efforts in her homeland.

Through her foundation, Svitolina has successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, contributing to the support of those affected by the conflict.

Amidst the chaos and uncertainty caused by the invasion, Svitolina’s pregnancy became her top priority.

Her commitment to assisting her fellow Ukrainians in need reflected her deep-rooted compassion and desire to make a difference.
