American tennis phenom Coco Gauff will have a chance at vengeance when she faces Iga Swiatek in the quarterfinals of this year's Roland Garros (French Open), and sixth seed seems to be relishing the moment.
Gauff faced Swiatek in last year's final, falling in straight sets in her attempt to win her maiden Grand Slam trophy. However, the 19-year old appears to be ready for the rematch, stating she had been looking forward to the challenge.

"Since last year. I have been wanting to play her, especially at this tournament," said Gauff. "I'm the type of mentality that if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. I think it would be almost cowardly to say that I want to not face the noise and the challenge."
