Coco Gauff, the fifteen-year-old taking Wimbledon by storm -
Coco Gauff

In an interview with the BBC, Tracy Austin, a two-time US Open Champion herself has said that Gauff’s talent as a tremendous athlete has been talked about for years, but now this impressive run at Wimbledon has started to gain her international recognition. At only thirteen she was the runner-up at the 2017 junior US Open and followed this up with winning the 2018 junior French Open.

From watching her over the last week you would think that she has been at the top for years. She is a tall, imposing player with great anticipation who chases down every point. Her highlight is her winning backhand which has, so far, had her opponents beaten.

Gauff has teamed up with young Brit Jay Clarke in the mixed doubles, in a draw that also contains the pairing of Serena Williams and Andy Murray. A good move for Clarke and it will be exciting to see how far the pairing can go.
