FeaturedSports NewsAustralian Open: Czech teenager Linda Frohovertova defeats Markta Vandrossova. to reach the fourth round

Czech teenager Linda Frovirtova advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open on Saturday, defeating compatriot Markta Vandrossova 7-5 2-6 6-3.

At 17 years and 273 days, Fruhvirtova is the youngest woman remaining in the draw. Playing in her second Grand Slam main draw, Fruhvirtova showed extraordinary courage to rally from 3-1 down in the decider to beat her more favored opponent.

Vondrosova struggled to replicate the form that helped her reach the 2019 Roland Garros final but the 23-year-old made a deep run in Melbourne after defeating second seed Onis Djibouti in the final round. She looked ready.

World No. 82 Fruhvirtova – who won her first WTA title in Chennai in September – had other plans, however, and held her nerve to meet Croatia’s Donna Vecic in the third set.
