Athletistic/Tennis. Former world number three Nadezhda Petrova, in an interview with Match TV, called Mirra Andreeva a young world tennis star and explained who she is rooting for at Wimbledon.

Andreeva, 17, is ranked 23rd in the WTA rankings and reached the semifinals of Roland Garros this season. At Wimbledon, she lost to Brenda Fruhvirtova in the first round. Another Russian tennis player, Anna Kalinskaya, reached the last 16 of the tournament for the first time in her career, beating her compatriot Lyudmila Samsonova.

— In Russian tennis, Mirra Andreeva has become a discovery for me. She performed very well at Roland Garros. Of course, at Wimbledon she could not confirm her points and show the same good result, but nevertheless she remains our young world star. I think that all the attention of world tennis is focused on her, “Petrova told Match TV.
