She is one of the most promising players on the international scene. Linda Frukhvirtova, born in 2005, continues to go from strength to strength and to amaze the experts. The young Czech tennis player, followed by her father Hynek and constantly monitored by Patrick Mouratoglou, reached the quarter-finals of the WTA of Charleston at only 15 years of age thanks to a clear success in two sets over Emma Navarro.
GAME. SET. MATCH 🙌

Aggressive tennis, heavy ball and a future that looks very bright. The rise of the young Czech starts from the first youth tournaments, starting from the Lemon Bowl on the courts of the New Penta 2000 in Rome, when she already glimpses a talent out of category for her peers. The results are the order of the day: from the title taken at the prestigious Les Petits As to the first final in the ITF circuit in Monastir in less than two years, with the landing in the top 10 of the junior world ranking and the debut in the major circuit in Prague last year.
A precocious talent that is about to blossom and will be talked about for a long time. Although she will only be able to play a limited number of WTA tournaments in the immediate future due to the age restriction, Linda doesn’t set limits for herself.
“It was a different match from the first round because every match and every day is different – said the Czech – It’s a great feeling to be in the quarterfinals of a major tournament. I’m happy I stayed focused and I was able to bring the match home. The emotion of the first experiences? I have already breathed the atmosphere of the Slams in the junior circuit but here it is different. Obviously, I hope to keep the level high and to continue on this path trying to win as many matches as possible”.Linda Fruhvirtova
The tradition of his home country doesn’t lie. “We had and still have great players like Strycova, Kvitova and Safarova. I hope I can do well as well.” In the Fruhvirtova household, the hope is twofold: Brenda, her class of 2007 sister, is equally promising. “Brenda helps me so much in building my career. She gives me the right advice and I’m so happy to have her by my side, because we train together, we play doubles and we push each other towards achieving more and more goals.”
