Mirra Andreeva Facts
- Mirra first came into the spotlight in January 2023 when she reached the final of the singles event at the Junior Australian Open.
- In April 2023, ranked 194th in the world, she received a wildcard entry into the main draw of the Madrid Open – a WTA 1000 (an annual series of 9 prestigious tennis tournaments featuring the top-ranked players on the WTA Tour (a worldwide top-tier tennis tour for women organized by the WTA)) event.
- In the first round of this tournament, Mirra defeated Leylah Annie Fernandez – the singles runner-up at the 2021 US Open – in straight sets. This made her the then-third youngest player ever to have won a main draw match at a WTA 1000 tournament.
- She also became just the second 15-year-old in history to have defeated a player ranked in the ‘Top 50’ of the official WTA singles rankings at a WTA 1000 tournament. In the next (second) round of the 2023 Madrid Open, she defeated 13th seed Beatriz Haddad Maia in straight sets.
- This was Mirra’s first win against a player ranked in the ‘Top 20’ of the official WTA singles rankings. It also made her the 7th youngest female player in the 21st century to have defeated a ‘Top 20’ opponent. In the 3rd round of the tournament (played on her 16th birthday), Mirra upset another player ranked in the ‘Top 20’ in straight sets – 17th seed Magda Linette.
- Her fairytale run came to an end in the fourth round when she was knocked out in straight sets by 2nd seed and eventual champion Aryna Sabalenka. Mirra’s performance in this tournament pushed her nearly 50 positions up in the WTA singles rankings – to world number 146 on May 8, 2023.
- She made her main draw Grand Slam debut at the 2023 French Open. She made another promising start by winning her first two matches in straight sets. This made her the youngest female player since 2005 to have reached the third round of a Grand Slam (Australian Open/French Open/Wimbledon Championship/US Open) tournament.
- Her run ended when she lost to 6th seed Coco Gauff in the third round. Mirra’s performance in this tournament pushed her more than 40 positions up in the WTA singles rankings – to world number 101 on June 12, 2023.
- In July 2023, she made her main draw debut at the Wimbledon Championships and won her first-round match in 3 sets. In the second round, Mirra was leading 6-3, 4-0 against 10th seed and 2021 French Open singles champion Barbora Krejčíková when the latter retired – handing Mirra the then-biggest win of her career.
- She then overcame 22nd seed Anastasia Potapova to reach the fourth round where she was toppled over by 25th seed Madison Keys in 3 sets. As a result of her performance in this tournament, Mirra moved into the ‘Top 70’ of the official WTA singles rankings.
