The championship of Kenin is the most interesting phenomenon this year. It is like a fairy tale in real life. But it has been a long-term forecaster, coach Rick Macci.
Another impressive thing was when she reached the final of the 2015 US Open (losing to Dalma Galfi) and at one point Kenin climbed to No. 2 in the ITF youth rankings. But it was not until 19 years old that this Russian-American tennis player first passed the first round of a Grand Slam tournament (until the third round of the 2017 US Open).
By the end of 2019, Kenin has not left any real highlight in the Grand Slams despite being voted as the most progressive female player of the year by WTA.
Kenin has just won 3 singles titles in his career ahead of this year’s Australian Open. The best performance of this American tennis player in a Grand Slam tournament is in the fourth round of Roland Garros 2019. She has also never reached the top 10 of the WTA Rankings. The best achievement so far of Sofia Kenin is ranked 12th in the world.
Sofia Kenin is compared to Sharapova Proceedings
Sofia Kenin becomes the youngest Australian Open champion after 12 years when defeating Garbine Muguruza 4-6, 6-2, 6- 2 to win the first Grand Slam title of his career at 21.
On the evening of 1/2 in Melbourne Park, world tennis fans witnessed Sofia Kenin’s impressive comeback against former world No. 1 Garbine Muguruza to become the youngest tennis player since 2008 to win the tournament.
At 21 years and 80 days, Kenin showed no fear of losing the first set to the player who won the Grand Slam twice. “No surrender to every opponent” is the principle in the play of the American tennis player, in the style of idol Maria Sharapova.
Kenin’s career path in this sport is similar to Sharapova. Her parents were Russian. They first moved to the US in 1987. Then, they returned to Moscow to give birth to her, where they had the support of a large family. Kenin returned to the United States soon after and tennis quickly became part of her classes.
