Tennis sensation Mirra Andreeva received a great reception after her recent performances at the ongoing Wimbledon Championships. She came into the tournament as a 17-year-old trying to get some experience, but she has made a name for herself by playing some amazing, fearless tennis. Coming all the way from the qualifying rounds to the round of 16, she deserves nothing but appreciation.

However, in her clash against Madison Keys, the young tennis prodigy was well ahead of her opponent in the first hour of the match. She was also leading the second set by 5-2, just two points away from the match point. However, her lack of experience and calmness at this level of the sport cost her the match.

The tennis professional kept on losing points after not being able to capitalize on Keys’s mistake, thereby losing focus and handing over the match that was well on her side.

That’s not all; she even smashed the racket twice during the match, once during the second set tiebreak and another one during the third set, when Keys was just two points away from winning the match. The second time cost her a point penalty, which eventually took the game away from her.

Mirra Andreeva has got all the pundits talking about her after her third-round win against Anastasia Potapova, with many even comparing her present run of form to Maria Sharapova‘s 2004 Wimbledon run. But after her disappointing finish against Madison Keys, she will have a lot of things to work on, thereby finding a way to tackle her emotions and frustrations during a match that cost her her way to the quarterfinals.

Despite her sad end to this year’s Wimbledon Championships, the young tennis player mesmerized everyone with her sheer determination. With that being said, there is no denying the fact that she will now receive a lot of chances in the upcoming tournaments, but all her focus should be on the US Open, which happens in two months’ time.
