A pair of tennis playing identical twins from Latvia
and just like with the Pliskovas, there's a left-hander (Darja) and a right-hander (Marija)
which makes it extra fun/interesting.
The twins were born on September 16, 2002 in Riga where they still live.
Atm, Darja is ahead of Marija (Darja is currently #14 in the U14 European rankings, having peaked at 6; whereas Marija is #50 atm, with a CHR of 37), but who knows, a lot of things can change in the next 10 months!
Darja has had a good week at Cat. 1 G14 TIM Essonne in France this week, her 2nd tournament of the year, where she reached the SFs. She was the 3rd seed, had a bye in R1, beat Jade Bornay 2 & 3 in R2, 14th seed Pia Lovric 3 & 0 in R3, and 9th seed Melania Delai 7-5 6-3 in QF, before falling to 2nd seed Qinwen Zheng in SF, 6-7(2) 2-6
I guess this good week will bring her back in the Top 10?
Her first event of the year was the Cat. 1 G14 in Stockholm last week. She was the 6th seed, had a bye in R1, beat Pia Lovric 4 & 4 in R2, but lost badly to Holly Fischer in R3, 0 & 4.
As for Marija, she hasn't played any official match since last September and I wonder why?
Hope she doesn't have a big injury/health issue
Best of luck to Daša and Maša in the future!
