America’s tennis star Coco Gauff has revealed that she is looking forward to winning the title in Stuttgart after re-hiring coach Jean-Christophe Faurel. The 20-year-old is often regarded as one of the most highly-rated players currently playing in women’s tennis in the singles category.
Gauff recently re-hired coach Faurel. She parted ways with him back in 2020. While talking about it, the current world number three was of the opinion that it was good to have someone in the backroom staff who knows her from a young age.
"It's nice to have someone on my team that knows me since I was young and knows me well," Gauff said. "So I'm really, really excited to have him back on the team. Yeah, it's good. I'm glad that the government let us be together again.”
Talking about her objective in the ongoing Stuttgart Open, the Florida-born stated that she is keen to win the title as she is not focused on preparing for the French Open which would be an ultimate goal for any player playing on the clay court.
"For the clay court season this year, I'm really optimistic," she said. "Obviously the goal is to win French Open, but that's every season of any top player. Your goals should be to try to win the big tournament.

Coco Gauff shares optimism for the clay court season. 
"But I'm not looking at French Open right now. I'm focused on Stuttgart. I want to try to win Madrid or Rome or here. The last time I won a clay-court title was a couple years ago if I'm not mistaken, so I kind of just want to get a recent clay title under my belt. So any of the ones along the next couple weeks would be nice."
"I'm always feeling confident about myself. Especially after US Open, I can be a contender. Semifinal in Australia, losing to Aryna who ended up winning. I feel like I'm definitely a contender in all the tournaments, and it just comes down to the crunch-time moments and who can perform better."
