Gauff on last minute pairing with Fernandez after reaching Indian Wells Quarter-Finals: "I think I asked you Saturday"
Coco Gauff and Leylah Fernandez are teaming together this week in the doubles at BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells and dispatched of fifth seeds Demi Schuurs and Nicole Melichar-Martinez 6-3, 6-2 to reach the Quarter-Finals.
But as Gauff and Fernandez discussed during their post match on court interview, it was a late decision for them to join forces in the first place.
"It's going really well, we're playing really good tennis. I think the chemistry on court is really well, we're just having fun on court," said Fernandez post match.
"I think we're both enjoying it a lot and I had a lot of fun in my singles match today and just as much fun in my doubles match. Leylah is really fun to play with, I actually asked her last minute to play," said Gauff.
"I think I asked you Saturday. The funny thing was I practiced with her two days earlier and then two days later, I asked her if she wanted to play and here we are."
