Video: Gauff speaks on Centre Court experience at Wimbledon - "When you bounce the ball, you can hear a pin drop"

American tennis sensation Coco Gauff will be one of the underdogs at this year's Wimbledon, as the teenager returns to the tournament that introduced her to the tennis world.

As a 15-year old, Gauff defeated five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round of the 2019 Wimbledon Championships. The Atlanta native has since seen her stock rise in the tennis community, reaching a career-high ranking of World No.12. Furthermore, Gauff finished runner-up at this year's Roland Garros, losing to a red-hot Iga Swiatek in the final.

With Wimbledon just days away, Gauff spoke on her excitement for the tournament. The 18-year old described the feeling of playing on the prestigious Centre Court, highlighting it's unique atmosphere.

"When you bounce the ball you can hear a pin drop, only Centre Court has that vibe," said Gauff.

The American kicks off her Wimbledon campaign on Monday, when she faces Romanian Elena-Gabriela Ruse in the first round.
