Fifteen-year-old Mirra Andreeva stuns Haddad Maia at Madrid Open

On Thursday, 15-year-old Russian tennis player Mirra Andreeva defeated 14th-ranked Beatriz Haddad Maia of Brazil 7-6(6), 6-3 to advance to the third round. This comes after Andreeva’s upset victory over 2021 U.S. Open finalist Leylah Fernandez of Canada, making her the third-youngest player to win a main-draw match at a Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) 1000 tournament. Andreeva has now won 15 straight matches and earlier this year became the first player to win two or more W60 titles before the age of 16. She is only the second 15-year-old to defeat a top-50 opponent at a WTA 1000 tournament and the seventh-youngest player since 2000 to defeat a top-20 opponent before the age of 16.
