Gauff doesn't think acting career will take off: "It tested my patience a lot"

American tennis sensation Coco Gauff is set to make her television debut when she guest stars on the next episode of "All American: Homecoming".

The show is a spinoff of the critically acclaimed "All American" series, a sports drama inspired by the life of former NFL player Spencer Paysinger.

Gauff spoke about her acting experience during a recent press conference, and revealed she almost missed the appearance as it coincided with the WTA Finals.

"It was a very different experience," she said. "We did it in December during the offseason. It wasn't first going to work, because I think the first date they had me was during the WTA Finals. Obviously I wasn't going to miss that.

"Yeah, during the offseason we were able to figure out a date," she added. "I don't know if I'll do it again. It was like all day, and I didn't realize how many times you have to do a scene over and over and over again. Drills in tennis are repetitive, but I think that's even more repetitive."

Although she enjoyed the experience, the 19-year old admitted it was more difficult than it appeared on television.

"It was cool. I would do it again because of the people I met, but I don't think I would do it again because of the work," she said. "But if I can meet cool people, yeah, I would keep doing. Huge respect to all the actors, people in that business. It's definitely not as easy as it seems on the TV."
