Promising Czech Linda Fruhvirtova has set some high goals for her career as she has made it clear she wants to become a Grand Slam champion and become the No. 1 in the future. Fruhvirtova, 16, is one of the most interesting prospects on the WTA Tour and certainly someone who could one day become a major star in the game.
Fruhvirtova, ranked at No. 279 in the world, is guaranteed to enter the top-200 after reaching the Miami Masters round-of-16. “I have always answered that I want to reach No. 1. I want to win Grand Slam titles, which hasn’t changed.
We always said that with my sister it’s my goal and, yeah, we just want to achieve that," Fruhvirtova said, per Tennis Majors.
Fruhvirtova has a close relationship with her family
“Well, I love to spend time with my sister.
We go shopping sometimes. I don’t get much free time, but I like to follow some other sports, go to some games. For now, there is not much free time, but I just like to spend it with my family," Fruhvirtova revealed. In Miami, Fruhvirtova saw off Danka Kovinic for her first Masters victory, before she upset Elise Mertens in three sets for her first top-25 victory.
Fruhvirtova was 6-2 3-0 up against Victoria Azarenka in the third round, before the former world No. 1. "I never played against top-25 player, and, yeah, it's unbelievable. I still can't believe it. But I'm so happy I got the win here.
I worked really hard for this, and I'm enjoying it," Fruhvirtova said after beating Mertens. Linda's sister, Brenda, is 14 and currently playing ITF events. The Fruhvirtova sisters are extremely talented and Linda can't wait for her sister to join her on the WTA Tour.
“We train together sometimes. She’s obviously really good. We play doubles together. I just can’t wait till she’s playing these tournaments too and we can be here together and get these matches together. I think she’ll get here soon," Linda Fruhvirtova said.
