Harry Styles Invites Elina Svitolina to His Concert After She Missed Out Due To Wimbledon Clash

Harry Styles has personally invited tennis player Elina Svitolina to his concert after she missed his show – for a very good reason…

You see, the 28-year-old from Ukraine who recently advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon, took to Instagram revealing she’d have to give up her tickets to Harry’s gig in Vienna, Austria on the weekend because of her success!

“Hey guys!! I was supposed to go see my fave Harry Styles concert in Vienna tomorrow… But Wimbledon changed my plans. Someone want to go? I have two tickets,” she wrote, adding “You win some, you lose some.”

Earlier that day, she’d posted “Missing @harrystyles concert but well… it’s ok I guess,” tagging the official Wimbledon account in her post too.

The message eventually made it to Harry himself who commented on her post with a very kind proposal: “Congratulations! We have four shows to go, you’re welcome at any of them. Good luck with the rest of the tournament. H.”

Elina, who had a baby in October last year, ended up winning her match against former World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka.

“After giving birth, this is the second happiest moment of my life,” she said post-match.

Elina didn’t shake hands with the Belarusian after her win due to the ongoing war in Ukraine which has sparked a lot of online discussion about tennis etiquette and politics. However, when asked about the incident by reporters, Victoria Azarenka said she respected Elina’s decision and hoped the focus would remain on the incredible tennis they played instead.

And incredible it was. Elina won the three-set match with an ace in the final-set tiebreak!
