“It’s difficult to play with Mirra Andreeva.  Her rivals are relaxed or tense because of the age difference” – Guryeva

Russian tennis player Anastasia Gurieva believes that the successful performances of his compatriot Mirra Andreeva are associated with the young age of the athlete, which pushes rivals to underestimate.

Andreeva, 16, is ranked 49th in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings.

— It’s difficult to play with Mirra, because the opponents see the age difference. And they think they definitely can’t lose to her. As a result, they either relax or become tense. But I try not to pay attention to it. In a way, the junior tour helped me, because I played with everyone who was younger than me, even though I tried not to pay attention to it. Because I know that tennis is played at completely different ages: from 15 to 40. You should not look at who your opponent is, but simply try to win,” Guryeva quotes in “Championship”.

Guryeva is 18 years old; in 2023, the Russian won the US Open in junior doubles.
