烏克蘭選手Anhelina Kalinina表示,她在溫布爾登比賽中獲勝的動力是賺取儘可能多的錢來幫助家鄉的人們在戰爭中生存。

"她說:"很難集中精力,但如果我贏了或輸了,這很重要。

卡利尼娜接下來將對陣同胞萊西亞-津倫科,她說他們想提醒人們 "烏克蘭仍然處於困境"。

25歲的卡利尼娜說,她的父母 "還活着,很安全",現在住在她的公寓裡,同時重建他們的家園。

然而,她的祖父母仍然被困在被占領土上,卡利尼娜說他們住在 "俄羅斯士兵的隔壁,有他們所有的軍事物資"。

29號種子卡利尼娜說:"我贏得越多,我不僅在幫助我的家庭,我還在幫助其他家庭和其他人。"她以4-6 6-2 6-4戰勝了匈牙利選手安娜-邦達爾。

"你走得更遠。你賺更多的錢。然後我就能夠幫助,而且我在儘可能多地幫助,不僅僅是幫助我的家人。所以對我來說這很重要。

"我不是一個超級明星,所以我在幫助我所能做的。這對他們來說很重要,對我來說,這是巨大的比賽動力。巨大的。"

自俄羅斯於2月24日入侵烏克蘭以來,成千上萬的平民和戰鬥人員被殺或受傷,至少有1200萬人逃離家園。

33歲的Tsurenko說,離她在基輔的房子只有100米的地方發生了炸彈襲擊,她一直定期與一名心理學家合作,試圖處理家鄉發生的創傷。

"當戰爭開始時,我開始感覺到我內心的緊張,我想即使我每天與心理學家一起工作,我也試圖這樣做,我不知道如何試圖避免這種情緒。這是不可能的,"津倫科說,他在2019年2月的世界排名達到了職業生涯的最高點,即第23位。

"我認為這種感覺,這種緊張,只有在戰爭結束後才會釋放。我對此無能為力。"

但她補充說:"我覺得我打得更好,只是因為對我來說,情感上的輸贏已經不存在了。

"在我的生活中,有一個大問題:那就是戰爭。而且沒有其他東西可以打敗這個。"

津倫科說,如果允許的話,她想在與卡利尼娜的比賽中在裝備上佩戴烏克蘭絲帶,全英俱樂部確認她可以 "假設事先與組織者達成一致"。

他們的首場勝利是在烏克蘭駐英國大使Vadym Prystaiko成為中央球場皇家包廂的客人之一的同一天取得的。

還有來自波蘭家庭協會的代表--一個由溫布爾登基金會支持的照顧抵達波蘭和英國的烏克蘭難民的慈善機構。

兩天前,曾在2013年和2014年進入溫布爾登第三輪的烏克蘭前球員謝爾蓋-斯塔霍夫斯基在推特上發布了戰爭照片,以鮮明地說明在錦標賽進行期間他將如何度過未來兩周。

Ukraine's Anhelina Kalinina says she is being motivated to win at Wimbledon by earning as much money as possible to help people back home survive the war.

"It's hard to focus, but it matters if I win or if I lose," she said.

Kalinina next plays compatriot Lesia Tsurenko, who said they want to remind people "Ukraine is still in trouble".

Kalinina, 25, said her parents are "alive and safe" and now staying in her apartment while they rebuild their home.

However, her grandparents are still stuck in occupied territory and Kalinina says they are living "next door to Russian soldiers with all their military stuff".

"The more I win, I'm not only helping my family, I'm helping other families and other people," said 29th seed Kalinina, who won 4-6 6-2 6-4 against Hungary's Anna Bondar.

"You go further. You earn more money. Then I'm able to help, and I'm helping as much as I can and not only to my family. So for me that matters.

"I'm not a superstar so I'm helping with what I can. And it's a lot to them, and for me that's huge motivation to play. Huge."

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February, thousands of civilians and combatants have been killed or wounded, and at least 12 million people have fled their homes. • None Live TV, radio and text coverage of Wimbledon day one • None 'The good vibes are the same' - the queue returns

Tsurenko, 33, said there had been a bomb attack just 100 metres from her house in Kyiv and has been working regularly with a psychologist to try to deal with the traumas of what is happening back home.

"When the war started I start to feel this tension inside of me and I think even if I work every day with a psychologist, and I try to, I don't know how try to avoid this emotions. It's impossible," said Tsurenko, who reached a career high ranking of 23rd in the world in February 2019.

"I think this feeling, this tension, will only be released when the war will finish. There is nothing I can do about it."

But she added: "I feel that I play better, just because for me emotionally winning or losing doesn't exist any more.

"There is a big issue in my life: it's war. And there is nothing else that can beat this."

Tsurenko said she would want to wear a Ukrainian ribbon on her kit during the match against Kalinina if she was allowed, with the All England Club confirming she could "assuming it was agreed" with organisers beforehand.

Their opening victories came on the same day Ukraine's ambassador to the UK, Vadym Prystaiko, was one of the guests in the Centre Court royal box.

There were also representatives from the Polish Family Association - a charity supported by the Wimbledon Foundation caring for Ukrainian refugees arriving in Poland and the UK.

Two days ago, Ukrainian former player Sergiy Stakhovsky, who reached the third round at Wimbledon in 2013 and 2014, tweeted photographs of the war to starkly illustrate how he would be spending the next two weeks while the championships are being played. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone
