This 5’4″, 15 year-old tennis phenom could be the future of the women’s game and showed it Friday at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. Michelle Larcher de Brito upset the 17 seed, Agneiszka Radwanska, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5. This is her first of her sure to be many top 20 wins in her career. This Portugal native lives and trains at Bollettieri’s Tennis Academy, the birthplace of the careers of Andre Agassi, Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jankovic, Nicole Vaidisova, and many others. Nick Bollettieri projects Michelle to be “one of his best”. Her progress may be happening a little sooner than we all thought.
