Moreover, on August 22, 2022, she earned the career-high WTA doubles rankings of world no. 487.

Not only that, the sister has won one double and three single titles on the ITF Circuit.

At the US Open, she made her major debut after winning three qualifying matches. As the fans say, the sisters’ duo is not new on the tennis field.

While Mirra was just a toddler, she went to practice matches and training with Erika, and they both grew up to be talented tennis players.

Mirra has said that she gets more nervous watching her sister’s game than playing her own.

Her biggest fear was that her sister’s match would begin too late for her to stay and see it.

Mirra Andreeva’s 25 Grand Slam Dream

The 16 years old Mirra told the secret of achieving her dream of ’25 Grand Slams’ is to not be a ‘diva’ at a press conference after Ronald Garros’ game against Coco Gauff.

The player has also mentioned that she currently wants to win match by match without losing or missing any games.

She faced world No. 6 and 2016 runner-up Gauff at Roland Garros, and if she keeps playing like this, she has no reason to stop winning.

 ‘The dream… well I know Novak Djokovic won 22 Grand Slams, so I want to go until 25!

Additionally, it’s hard to avoid comparisons with her opponent. However, Mirra says that she isn’t successful yet; she hasn’t won tournaments, but she will play Ronald Garros with all her might.

Furthermore, Gauff and Andreeva have trained with each other before. The player also mentioned that she has a school and has been neglecting schoolwork due to tennis.
