Does SourceTree works with SVN?

I cant add a SVN repository created by TortoiseSVN in SourceTree. It gives me the following error "The selected path is not a git/mercurial repository";

SourceTree only can freshly check out from a SVN server, but is not able to reuse an SVN working copy. The reason is, that Sourcetree does not use SVN but Git to manage the files locally.

Thats what i'm trying to do, add a just created SVN Repo, what i'm missing?

You can enter any valid Subversion URL in the clone box, in order to clone a Git/Mercurial repository from SVN and interoperate with the SVN server over time if you want. You can't, however, add a SVN checkout.

I am running SourceTree on Windows and it doesn't detect a Subversion repository, this is what I see:SVN detection failure
