Mirra Andreeva defeated Jasmine Paolini in the Round of 16 at the 2024 Madrid Open.

17-year-old Russian prodigy Mirra Andreeva is set to face Italy’s Jasmine Paolini in the semi-finals at the 2024 French Open. Andreeva as well as Paolini, both tennis stars, are playing their first Grand Slam semi-final.

The Russian tennis star has become the youngest semi-finalist in a Grand Slam since Martina Hingis in 1997. On the other side, Jasmine Paolini has become the fifth tennis player in the 21st century to reach the last four of a Grand Slam after turning 28.

Moreover, it’s the first time in the game’s history that Italian players have managed to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam in men’s as well as women’s singles events. Thus, the contest between the two tennis stars, who have defeated the likes of Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina in recent rounds, is expected to be a spectacle.

Mirra Andreeva vs Jasmine Paolini preview

Before the 2024 French Open, Mirra Andreeva reached the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open, where she suffered a loss against World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka. Coincidentally, she faced Sabalenka in the quarter-finals at the 2024 Roland-Garros, where she completed her redemption.

Before the quarter-final fixture, Aryna Sabalenka was on an 11-match unbeaten streak in Grand Slams in 2024 without dropping a single set. However, the Belarusian tennis star’s streak came to an end. Sabalenka revealed that she wasn’t feeling well and her game also looked sluggish. However, a win is a win, as Andreeva added her name to the history books.

The 17-year-old also defeated the likes of Victoria Azarenka and Varvara Gracheva in the initial rounds. Meanwhile, Jasmine Paolini has surprised the tennis world with her astounding performances. Before facing World No. 4 Elena Rybakina, she didn’t have any seeded player on her route to the quarter-finals.

However, the last eight fixture, which was expected to be a one-sided contest, turned out to be a three-set thriller eventually won by the underdog. Rybakina fired 10 aces against the Italian, but Paolini stood compact.

The two had a similar winning percentage on the first serve, however, Paolini’s success on the second serve was 67%, compared to Rybakina’s 42%. With an overall brilliant performance, Jasmine Paolini secured a spot in her first-ever Grand Slam semi-final. Apart from the singles success, she’s also in the semi-finals of the women’s doubles event alongside compatriot Sara Errani.
