Mirra Andreeva will become an all-time great.


She is only 17 years old, but the world number 38 has already achieved so much.


Mirra was born in the city of Krasnoyarsk in 2007 and grew up training with her sister Erika in Moscow.


She quickly became very successful as she climbed to the top of the junior rankings.


Mirra has been called a prodigy by tennis experts and she played her first professional match in late 2022 when she was just 15.


The tennis world got a glimpse of her when she pushed 6th seed Anastasia Potapova all the way in an epic three set match.


It wasn’t until Madrid last year though that fans started taking notice.


After receiving a wildcard into the clay WTA 1000 tournament, she stunned everyone by winning three straight matches to make it to the last 16.


Mirra beat 13th seed Beatriz Haddad Maia along the way before falling to number 2 seed Aryna Sabalenka.


Her strong backhand and mentality helped her continue her rise in 2023.


She made the third round at Roland Garros and then was part of the last 16 at Wimbledon.


Her incredible runs at these tournaments made her a fan favourite.


She has since started 2024 in the same sort of form.


Mirra destroyed Ons Jabeur at this year’s Australian Open before again making the last 16 at a major.


Her personality and fighting spirit has made her a very tough player to beat in recent times.


If you still don’t believe me, another terrific player that had a standout career has had her say on the teenager.


That was 5-time major champion Maria Sharapova.


In a recent video done for the WTA, she said


“I think Mirra has a strong attitude, and she has the game to back it up. I genuinely just like her approach and her sensibility in the game. And I think she has a very bright future ahead of her." 


Andreeva now sits well entrenched inside the world’s top forty.


She has always been called a prodigy, and I think she will continue living up to the hype.


In an era where players like Carlos Alcaraz and Coco Gauff have thrived as teens, Andreeva looks to be well on her way to matching their efforts.


I am predicting Mirra Andreeva will finish the year inside the top 15 and make the last 8 of a major tournament.


She is an outstanding player already and will be a force for years to come. Tonight she plays her first round match at Roland Garros vs. American Emina Bektas.
