The world is currently at a standstill due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. Tensions between the two countries do not appear to be calming as Russia is determined to invade Ukraine. Thousands of people have lost their lives, millions of them have lost their homes.

The war situation has affected almost every sphere of life, including the sports world. Many sports have banned Russian athletes from competing professionally, while some, such as tennis, have banned Russian flags from the sport. Many Ukrainian tennis players very actively condemned the Russians and even spoke out very strongly against the Russians.

Following Elina Svitolina, another Ukrainian tennis player, Lesia Tsurenko has shared heartbreaking details about her ailments. Svitolina was the most vocal athlete regarding the Russian invasion, indirectly forcing the WTA to take a firm stand against Russia. Now, Tsurenko, who is ranked at No. 135 in the world, has revealed that the last month has been the worst of her life.

She said her life was filled with constant headaches, panic attacks and guilt over the war in Ukraine. She added that now she must return to Kyiv after the defeat, but how is she doing it amid the war crisis? She added that every Ukrainian has a nightmare story to tell because of the Russian invasion.

“After the worst month of my life with constant headaches, panic attacks and guilt over the war in Ukraine, I face a new challenge… as a player based in Kyiv, I have nowhere to go. Now every Ukrainian has their own nightmare story… Where should I go?” said Tsurenko.

She then eliminated again in the first round in Guadalajara, not even making it into the Indian Wells peloton. Last week in Miami, despite winning the qualifiers, she again failed to win a main draw. At the WTA 125K event in Marbella, she was eliminated again in straight sets to Oceane Dodin in the first round.
