The Fruhvirtova sisters, heirs of the Williams

by archysport

The repetition of the story of the Williams sisters could be brewing from the Czech Republic.

Very few times we have found that the definition for a title is between two sisters, and one of those rare occasions happened on Saturday at the Yucatan Cup.

The match for the champion trophy was played by sisters Brenda and Linda Fruhvirtova, with the former winning, in a match that could spell the future of women’s professional tennis.

The Yucatan Cup is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the youth circuit, not for nothing is it classified as the Youth World Cup, because it is one of the tournaments that resembles a Junior Grand Slam.

The Czech sisters reached the Final after epic semi-final triumphs; Brenda did it after beating top seed Victoria Jiménez Kasintaeva in three sets on Friday, while Linda beat Croatian Petra Marcinko, the second seeded, in consistency and in good shot placement, to undermine her little by little until she lined up to clear victory, no objections.

Brenda, just 14 years old, was the winner of the title, beating Linda, 16, to achieve what only sisters Venus and Serena Williams have done, but on the professional circuit.

And it is that the Czech sisters are doing what the Americans have done in the WTA; the precedent prior to Yucatán was at the Guadalajara World Cup, where Linda won the title.

At just 14 years old, Brenda is the one who can have the most future, since she has already participated in professional tournaments, where she has shown that she has what to do with the top WTA figures.

In February of this year the youngest of the Fruhvirtova won the Little Aces tournament, the world championship for players under 14 years of age, from none other than her sister Linda.

Both are already represented by IMG, the multi-million dollar company that runs the careers of the most outstanding tennis players in the world.

In addition, they train at the Patrick Mouratoglou Academy in France, where figures such as Serena Williams, Stefanos Tsitsipas, David Goffin and Gael Monfils have forged their careers, and which is an obligatory stop for every tennis player who tours Europe.

There have been several messages that the Czech sisters have sent to show that they are ready to take their place on the women’s circuit.

An example is the triumph that Brenda achieved last year against her compatriot Katerina Siniakova, 11 years older, number 54 in the world and with 10 titles in her career.

With all these antecedents, it is clear that we are at the beginning of a new story of two sisters who in the coming years will be fighting each other in the spotlight and the titles of women’s professional tennis.
