Her family was no stranger to sports as her father, Mikhaylo, was former wrestler and her mom, Olena, was a former competitive rower. Her older brother, Yulian, first started playing tennis, and around the same time Elina became interested in the sport. She moved to Kharkiv when she was 13 years of age to train and further development her tennis game. As a 15 year old she won the Girls Singles French Open title, and reached her first professional ITF Singles final in Kharkiv the same year. She rose quickly in the WTA rankings capturing her first WTA Singles title in 2013 at the Baku Cup, then defending her title in 2014 and reaching the Semifinals of the Wuhan Open later that same year.
