Players’ careers are full of highs and lows, even for top-ranked players. Nadal, for example, has had to face injuries and surgeries just to keep playing the sport he loves so much.
Amanda Anisimova has faced a lot of things at such a young age in and out of the court.
Once a French Open semi-finalist, the 20-year-old, who won her first title in 2019, had to endure the loss of her father, during the best season. Of her career. After that, it was normal to see her lose in the first round of any tournament.
Fast forward to the beginning of 2022. A new partnership with Coach Callauh started to turn things around as she won her second title at the Melbourne 2 event in January.
She seems to have more confidence in her forehand now since her backhand has always been her weapon and has been able to back up all the promise she showed at only 17 years old.
In 2022 alone she has beaten Naomi Osaka in the first two Grand Slams of the year, besides some other great encounters with dangerous players where you can see her confidently closing the match.
It is an advantage that Amanda came into the spotlight at such a young age because it seems like even after years on tour, her career is just starting, giving her a lot of room for improvement.
Although the partnership with coach Cahill ended abruptly in the middle of Indian Wells, Amanda seems to continue the winning streak, and is now weird to see her lose in the first round of a tournament.
She is scheduled to play Muchova on Friday for a chance to be in the fourth round of the French Open.
