For the most staunch tennis fans, Fruhvirtova is not a totally unknown name. In February the Czech won the Little Aces tournament, the world championship for players under the age of 14. In the record he succeeded his own sister, Linda. After the Williams and Pliskova sisters, will the Fruhvirtova now reach the top?
