Czech teenage tennis sensational Linda Fruhvirtova living the dream at 16 years old. She went beyond what she had experienced Viktoria Azarenka compete in the third round to become the youngest player ever to reach the fourth round Open Miami since 2004.

The former world no. Fruhvirtova now meets the Spanish star Paula Badosa where the teenager starts the game as an underdog again, but the way she plays can have bizarre results.

The 16-year-old hit sensationally against two-time Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka. She was in the driving seat with a 6-2, 3-0 as the Belarusian decided to give up the win. Otherwise, the youngster threatened a complete blow against one of the most experienced players in the women’s circus.

It was a tough few months for the 32-year-old veteran. Azarenka burst into tears after her defeat Elena Rykabina last month at Indian Wells. Azarenka looked completely upset against a much inexperienced opponent. Fruhvirtova hardly gave her a chance to get back into the game.

The youngster wasn’t sure what happened to her opponent, but she showed she didn’t want to win that way. However, she wished Azarenka the best and hopes that she will get better soon.

“I don’t know what happened in the end,” Fruhvirtova said AFP.

“She was struggling with some injuries. I don’t know, but it was an honor to share the yard with her. You never want to end the match that way, but it happens. We shook hands and then she walked away.” She added.

But despite all of Azarenka’s troubles, it was Fruhvirtova’s golden moment when she became the youngest tennis star to reach the round of 16 at the Miami Open since the French tennis star Tatyana Golovinwho accomplished the feat back in 2004.

When asked how she felt about accomplishing such a feat at such a young age, Fruhvirtova explained that it was very difficult for her to describe her feelings. She’s still getting used to playing in big stadiums amidst the crowds and playing against some of the biggest names in tennis.

“I don’t even know how to describe it. These are exactly the things I’ve always dreamed of. Playing in these big stadiums, in front of so many people, is definitely a big dream come true and I’m really enjoying it.”

“I think it was definitely cool to play against Vika (Victoria Azarenka). She was one of the players I grew up and she was certainly one of the players I look up to. So it was something very special for me to be on the pitch with her,” concluded the young Czech.
