Mirra Andreeva's remarkable comeback secures Australian Open fourth round spot

Posted : 19 January 2024

In a stunning comeback at the Australian Open, 16-year-old Mirra Andreeva displayed resilience as she saved a match point to secure a remarkable third-set victory over France's Diane Parry. Despite trailing 5-1 in the deciding set and facing a match point on her serve, Andreeva managed to win five consecutive games, serving for the match at one point.

 

Although Parry broke back to force a tie-break, Andreeva dominated the breaker, securing her place in the fourth round and showcasing her exceptional talent on her debut at the Australian Open.

 

Andreeva had previously reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last year, demonstrating her prowess on the Grand Slam stage. Meanwhile, Aryna Sabalenka, the Belarusian second seed, continued her dominant title defense with a swift 6-0, 6-0 victory over Lesia Tsurenko, spending just 52 minutes on the court. Sabalenka, aiming to emulate Iga Swiatek's success from the previous year, has lost a mere six games in her three matches at Melbourne Park this tournament.

 

Coco Gauff also made her mark on Friday, advancing with a commanding 6-0, 6-2 win over Alycia Parks. Gauff's strong performance reflects her prowess on the court, adding another promising chapter to her journey in the Australian Open. The tournament continues to witness exciting matches and the emergence of young talents like Andreeva and Gauff.
