Four titles and 20 wins in a row: 15-year-old Brenda Fruhvirtova continues ascent
The younger Fruhvirtova sister has picked up her fourth consecutive title on the ITF World Tour and has become the first 15-year-old to win six ITF$25K titles
Brenda Fruhvirtova, the younger of the Fruhvirtova sisters from the Czech Republic, picked up her fourth consecutive ITF $25K title on Sunday – and the sixth overall of her young career so far, with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Germany’s Noma Noha Akugue in Braunschweig, Germany.
Fruhvirtova creates history with the win, becoming the first 15-year-old to win six ITF $25K titles. She did not drop a single set all week, extending her winning streak to 20 matches and has dropped just one set in that span.
The 15-year-old has earlier won titles in Mogyorod (Hungary), Klosters, Switzerland and Danderyd, Sweden over the past two months.
In the latest WTA rankings, Fruhvirtova jumps 38 spots to No 233 with points from her Mogyorod title coming in and she will climb further when her points from Braunschweig get added (Note – points from ITF events are added with a one week lag). She is projected to break into the top 200 when the next rankings get updated after the US Open.
While Brenda is continuing her rise up the ITF World Tour, her older sister Linda Fruhvirtova will make her Grand Slam main draw debut this week. The 17-year-old qualified for the US Open and will meet Xinyu Wang in the first round. Linda Fruhvirtova is currently ranked No 167 in the world.
