Suitable for mom! Mirra Andreeva will fight the legendary Williams, who is 27 years older

The rising star of Russian tennis will play seven-time champion TBSH in the first round in Cleveland.

The fourth week of August in Cleveland (United States) the WTA-250 category tournament will take place. This is the last competition where combat mode tennis players have the opportunity to prepare for the US Open. The leaders of the world ranking in the person of Iga Sviontek, Arina Sobolenko and Elena Rybakina will not go to Cleveland. At this time, they will rest after the intense “thousands” in Montreal and Cincinnati, and the sixth seed in the world Caroline Garcia received the first seed.

However, this does not mean that there will not be interesting games in Cleveland. Four Russians will participate in the tournament at once: Ekaterina Aleksandrova, who received the fourth seed, Anna Blinkova (8), Veronika Kudermetova, who entered the grid with a wild card (3)… and the 16-year-old star Mirra Andreeva. And it was Andreeva in the first round that the draw determined the opponent of the seven-time champion of Grand Slam tournaments, Venus Williams, who is suitable for her mother. The 43-year-old world tennis legend has no plans to end her career!

At Wimbledon, Mirra, the Australian Junior Open – 2023 finalist, once again had the entire tennis world talking about herself. The young Russian, through qualifying, reached the fourth round of the main draw, updating her best result in the Helmets (at Roland Garros, her TBSH debut Andreeva stopped in the third round). In the grass major, the athlete defeated, in particular, the 2021 Roland Garros champion Barbora Kreichikova and her compatriot Anastasia Potapova, who was entrenched in the top 30 of the WTA ranking. And only Madison Keys stopped the Wimbledon debutant. Nevertheless, Andreeva entered the top 70 of the world rating, where she is to this day.

After Wimbledon, Andreeva played only one tournament. And she didn’t work out too well. In the first round on the clay court in Lausanne (Switzerland), Mirra defeated the Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska, but in the second round Anna Bondar from Hungary turned out to be stronger: 7:6 (7:3), 6:3 . During that tournament, the Russian said that now her goal is to be among the top 50 in the world ranking. “At the beginning of the season I wanted to be in the top 70, now I am in 66th place. This goal has been achieved. The new goal is to break into the top 50. If it doesn’t work out, then I have 20 years to do it. So there are chances, ”she said in an interview on the court after the victory over Yastremskaya.

Andreeva also answered one of the most burning questions – about the change of citizenship. There were rumors that Mirra could become French in her passport. However, the athlete herself flatly denied the speculation of the foreign press. “This article appeared on one of the foreign tennis sites, which used a tweet from a person who has nothing to do with our family and team as a source. The media immediately contacted my agent, realized that this story was untrue, and ignored it.

I was born in Russia and until the previous year I lived between Krasnoyarsk, Sochi and Moscow. Due to the tennis calendar, the training process is now mainly organized in Cannes, I have a regular student visa. I do not intend to change citizenship. I fly home for the holidays, to Krasnoyarsk, ”Rossiyskaya Gazeta quotes her.

As for Yastremska, the Ukrainian, after a devastating defeat, could not think of anything better than to ask the WTA to punish her rival for the likes on social networks. Read more about this in our material.

Venus Williams, of course, is far from being as formidable an opponent as she was ten and even more so 20 years ago. Although she continues to regularly attend her favorite Wimbledon and the US Open, it was at these tournaments that she won all of her TBSH singles. And even at 43, she can create problems for almost any tennis player, even if she is at an ideal age from a game point of view. If you don’t believe me, just ask 26-year-old Veronika Kudermetova, who couldn’t do anything with Williams Sr. in the Cincinnati first round: 4:6, 5:7.

“My fall at Wimbledon [в матче с Элиной Свитолиной] It was a shock to me: I couldn’t believe this had happened, especially after all the injuries in recent years. I kept thinking, “How did this happen?” That match was very difficult for me. To be honest, I think I’m on a better level than at the beginning of the year. I play better every time. Therefore, I just tell everyone: “Pray for me, pray for my health so that I can continue to go out on the court (smiles),” Venus said at a press conference after defeating Kudermetova.
