How Djokovic & Alcaraz Help 16-Year-Old Phenom Andreeva To Improve

by Zachary Wimer

Mirra Andreeva is one of the best young players in the world, and she's quickly becoming one of the better players in the world.

She's still only a 16-year-old who is doing amazing tennis on a tennis court. It's not the first time we've seen it, of course, but it's still amazing because the tennis level we are seeing now has never been so high across the board.

Her performance at the Australian Open certainly proved that as she made it to the second week at yet another Grand Slam event, and that's really encouraging for the Russian. She's also improving rapidly, which is amazing to see.

Talking about it to the Australian Open radio, Andreeva admitted that simply watching tennis kind of helps her improve. For the teenager, watching sensational players like Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz certainly helps.

"Maybe I watch tennis a lot, so maybe that's why I actually kind of improve my skills everywhere, my volleys, and my finishing shots, because I watch Djokovic, I watch Alcaraz, I watch everyone."

For Andreeva, it's just about watching tennis because she really likes to do so. When she watches tennis, she notices what some players do on the court and then tries it out on the court, whether during a match or during practice.

In her mind, that would likely help her become a better tennis player, since learning from the likes of Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz is never a bad idea. The 16-year-old is basically a student of the game.

"I like to watch tennis, and sometimes I see what they do on the court, and I try to, I don't know, try it on the court when I practise, when I play a match, so, maybe that's why."
