Here’s the problem. Outside of a relatively small and poor part of the world, no one can even pronounce the last name. Just look at Pliskova. She’s at the top of the game, but casual fans have no clue who she is. If these girls really want to have fans, the best move these girls can make is to take US, UK or Australian citizenship.
Pauvre type.

Since the sweet little sisters get so much hype they feel the pressure. Its much easier when you are a nobody and no one is expecting anything from you. But when you get with 13 the biggest agency and sponsors contracts then there comes lots of pressure around the corner. No wonder the girls crumble under all those pressure and lose to girls who didn’t grow up with hype. Expectations is not a positive thing to grow up with in this phase in your career

I have very good news! As indicated, Linda is playing U-18 European Championships in Switzerland and her R2 opponent is Vanessa Ioana Georgiana Popa Teiusanu. For doubles Linda teamed up with Dominika Salkova! :) OMG, Domča and Linda are playing together. This is amazing! I would like them to be friends.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s see how well these two do on the ITF tour. From there, if their rankings go high enough, let’s see how well they do in a WTA 250 qualifying, NOT a WC into the main draw. From there we will see if they can get into a WTA 500 or WTA 1000. Finally let’s see if they can earn their way into a GS main draw. No, I repeat No, wildcards. If they decide to no longer play junior events have them start on the ITF level at the 15K events or 25K events. Again, NO MORE WILDCARDS.

The problem with those sisters is the double standards.
They get all the hype before they have do anything.
Even sweet little Emma get the hype after she played a good wimbledon .
But this with the sisters its not deserved.
Let them grow and climb the WTA rankings before they get WC everywhere

Exactly! They haven’t earned anything. Linda couldn’t even win a closed European junior event, and she lost to some girl who was not even top100 in the juniors lol

There are other young girls who get not the hype and fancy agency but who get better results. Only in Czech there are others who are more successful. That’s why it’s never a good idea to give young girls much hype before they have earned it. Big Agency s and WCs give only too much expectations. This sweet sisters deserves better.

Linda lost to Antonia Ruzic 6-4 4-6 6-7(3). She played a lot of matches recently. Good fitness training for her.
