The fanfare is building around 16-year-old Russian Mirra Andreeva, the youngest player to reach the third round at Roland Garros in 18 years. But she does not really know what all the fuss is about.

Andreeva turned 16 only in April and is playing in her first ever main draw at a Grand Slam after coming through qualifying. Her progress to the third round is a milestone many are raving about, but she has bigger fish to fry. “I don’t think that I have a lot of success now, you know – I didn’t win any tournaments,” she said on Wednesday, as if asking everyone to chill out. As for her ultimate dream? “I know that [Novak] Djokovic, he did [won] 22 Grand Slams, so I want to go until 25, if it will be possible.”

They are huge goals, but Andreeva’s talents on the court and calm demeanour may well be a winning combination. She beat France’s Diane Parry with ease on Wednesday, cruising to a dominant 6-1, 6-2 win in her first experience of playing on a show court at a major tournament.

It followed a similar 6-2, 6-1 rout against Alison Riske-Amritraj in the first round, after which she said she had been inspired by a text message from Andy Murray, who she congratulated on winning an Challenger event in Aix-en-Provence.

On Wednesday, she almost shrugged when asked how it felt to get another victory. “I cannot say that I didn’t expect that,” she said. “I was fighting for it, and so I did it.”

Andreeva has long been tipped for success. Her family moved from Siberia to Sochi and then Cannes when Andreeva and her older sister Erika began to show promise in the sport. She was snapped up by super agents IMG when she was just 12 and, following reaching the Australian Open girls’ final in January, proved during this clay court season exactly why she is ready for the big leagues.

In Madrid, she took advantage of her wildcard to reach the last 16 on her 16th birthday - becoming the youngest player to ever do so at a WTA 1000 event, beating two women in the top 20 along the way.

She also became the third youngest player to win a main-draw match at a WTA 1000 tournament, behind Cici Bellis and last year’s French Open finalist Coco Gauff - her upcoming third-round opponent who yesterday beat Julia Grabher 6-2, 6-3.

Four years ago, Gauff captured the imagination of the world to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon on her Grand Slam debut aged just 15. If Andreeva can beat the American on Friday, there will be similar excitement at Roland Garros no doubt.

The challenge with early success, Andreeva believes, is keeping her feet on the ground. “As my coach says, to not be like diva, to stay humble all the time. I will just be me.”

Which British players are involved?

Cameron Norrie is the only Briton left in the singles draw after Jack Draper retired from his match against Tomas Etcheverry with a shoulder problem while Dan Evans went out in the first round, losing 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to Australia’s Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Britons are notably absent on the women’s side, after a dreadful qualifying tournament and due to the absence of Emma Raducanu through injury. It is the first time since 2009 that no British women have featured in the main draw at a major.

Why is Andy Murray not playing in Paris?

Andy Murray withdrew from this year’s French Open to prioritise the grass-court season in the build-up to Wimbledon.

Murray was beaten in the first round of the Italian Open and made another early exit on clay after losing to Stan Wawrinka at an ATP Challenger event in Bordeaux.

The 36-year-old is understood to still be considering which tournaments to target and they may include Surbiton from June 4-11 and then Queen’s from June 19-25.

What is the French Open prize money?

The French Open total prize pool is €49.6 million (£43.2 million), up 12.3 per cent on 2022. The  men’s and women’s singles champions will each take home €2.3 million (£2 million) and the finalists will earn €1.15 million (£1 million).

Who are the defending champions?

Last year, Rafael Nadal became the first man to win 22nd major singles titles after sweeping aside eighth seed Ruud 6–3, 6–3, 6–0.

Swiatek solidified her status as the world’s best women’s player when she overwhelmed Gauff, who was playing in her first major singles final, 6–1, 6–3.
