Mirra's mother introduced her to tennis, fostering a deep connection to the sport from an early age
"When pregnant with Erika, I stumbled upon tennis on TV," Raisa Andreeva remembers. "The sport captivated me, and I wanted to learn the rules. Soon, I began watching matches as if they were TV series."
Mirra's entry to Madrid was on a wild card, giving her an opportunity to showcase her talent on a global stage.
