Coco Gauff shares life lesson secret to her Wimbledon strides

Wednesday, 03 July 2024 at 17:32
America’s young tennis star Coco Gauff has revealed that her improved outing at Wimbledon was due to her learning a lot about ‘life’.
The 20-year-old is often regarded as one of the most highly-rated young players currently playing in women’s tennis in the singles category. She recently lived up to the hype after winning her first Grand Slam. She lifted the US Open after beating the former world number one Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka in the final with a score of 2–6, 6–3, 6–2.
Gauff is currently participating in Wimbledon 2024, where she has already booked her place in the third round after beating Anca Todoni in straight sets with a score of 6-2, 6-1. The Atlanta-born, while talking to the media after the match, talked about how she has managed to improve her performance this year in a competition in which she was knocked out from the first round in 2023.
Gauff stated that one of the reasons is that she has learned a lot in the past year, something which is helping her going forward. “I think overall I just learned about life a lot,” she said. “I guess it’s what you do as you get older. What I do I’m passionate about but it’s not ever that serious. The world can make you feel like there’s so much pressure and expectation. At the end of the day it’s a game, it’s sport. I’m very very privileged and honored to be playing in front of you guys. This is the court where I first started here at Wimbledon. Court 1 is always a special place for me to play.”
Gauff’s opponent in the second round will be Britain’s Sonay Kartal. The 22-year-old defeated France’s Clara Burel in the round of 64 with a score of 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. Interestingly, it will be the first-ever meeting between the two players in professional tennis.
