Russian prodigy Mirra Andreeva rolls into the last 16 of a major for the first time while only playing in her second Grand Slam; the teenager, who is trying not to think about emulating Emma Raducanu, will play American Madison Keys, the 25th seed, in the fourth round on Monday
Teenager Mirra Andreeva continued her dream start to life on grass by storming into the last 16 at Wimbledon with a 6-2 7-5 victory over Anastasia Potapova.
Qualifier Andreeva, the youngest woman in the main draw at 16-years-old, had to wait a day to begin her third-round match but again showed why she is the talk of the tennis world with an accomplished display.
Andreeva's victory in one hour and 35 minutes over her more experienced compatriot means her impressive Grand Slam showing of reaching round three at Roland Garros in June has now been bettered.
She had never competed on grass before she started qualifying at Roehampton last week, but was able to chalk up a sixth consecutive win on the English lawn.
Comparisons are already being drawn to Raducanu's triumph at Flushing Meadow as a qualifier two years ago.
But Andreeva insisted: "Of course, in 2021 she did amazing job. Everyone was impressed. I think she was impressed also to pass the qualies and to win the Slam at 18. It's amazing but me, I just try to not think about it.
"I think it will disturb me, all these thoughts. I just try to play every match and don't think how far I have gone already or which round I'm playing, against who I'm playing.
