Russia’s young tennis star Mirra Andreeva has revealed that she is just like ‘another’ teenage girl after securing her place in the semifinal of the French Open.
The 17-year-old is often regarded as the next big thing in women’s tennis, and she lived up to the hype after beating world number two Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinal at Roland Garros with a score of 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.
With that win, Andreeva became the youngest player since 1997 to register a place in the semifinal of a Grand Slam in the women’s singles category. She is also the youngest player since Martina Hingis in 1997 to cement a spot in the last four of the French Open.
Talking about her off-court life, Andreeva stated that she is like a normal young girl who has to do schoolwork when she doesn’t like it. She also stated that she likes watching TV in her spare time and that she also spends time watching Netflix.
Mirra Andreeva defeated Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinal of the French Open.  
"I would say that I am almost like a normal teenager because I still have to do my school that I don't like to do,” she said. "I watch a lot of TV series in my spare time. I watch Netflix, I sometimes spend too much time on my Instagram, or I just do some cr*p when I'm at home. I laugh, I talk, and I just do some normal things."
Andreeva is now set to face Italy’s Jasmine Paolini in Thursday's last-four clash of the mega-event. The 28-year-old defeated the current world number four Elena Rybakina in the quarterfinal, scoring 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.
It will only be the second meeting between the two players in professional tennis and the first in the French Open. The last time these two players met was earlier this year at the Madrid Open, where Andreeva came out on top with a score of 7-6, 6-4.
