Brenda Fruhvirtova, the younger of the Czech Fruhvirtova sisters, picked up her fifth ITF $25K title of the season – this one coming in Mogyorod, Hungary – on Sunday.

The 15-year-old, currently ranked No 318 in the world, scored a thumping 6-0, 6-0 win over Germany’s Luisa Meyer auf der Heide, ranked No 527 in the world, to win the title without dropping a set all week.

It also marked the third consecutive ITF title after titles in Klosters, Switzerland and Danderyd, Sweden over the past two months for Fruhvirtova who now extends her winning streak to 15 matches. She has dropped only one set during her current winning streak.

This is the fifth ITF singles title for Brenda Fruhvirtova, all of which have come in this year. She is projected to break into the top 280 in the rankings on Monday and will climb further -projected to break into the top 250 – once the points from her title this week get added one week later (Note – points from ITF World Tour events get added after a lag of one week)

Brenda Fruhvirtova is the younger sister of 17-year-old Linda Fruhvirtova, who has already climbed to No 157 in the world rankings.
