President of the Russian Tennis Federation Shamil Tarpishchev spoke about 14-year-old Mirra Andreeva, who won two International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournaments in 2 weeks.
“There is no sensation in Andreeva’s victory – we have been the first in Europe in terms of youth for many years,” TASS quotes Tarpishchev. — She is a good girl, from Krasnoyarsk. It’s great that she won, but you should not make a sensation out of her victory, won and won. It is important that she continues to progress and does not stop, because early success does not guarantee victory in the future – the athlete is only being formed.
On Sunday, Andreeva won the ITF tournament in Antalya (Turkey). In the final, the 14-year-old Russian beat the 25-year-old German Silvia Ambrosio with a score of 7:5, 6:2.
On April 10, the tennis player became the winner of another tournament in Antalya, beating the Italian tennis player Martina Colmenya in the decisive match (6:7 (6:8), 6:0, 6:2).
Andreeva is ranked 19th in the world junior rankings and is on the 1269th line in the WTA rankings.
