Gauff reversed her Australian Open loss to Wang Qiang to defeat the qualifier 7-5, 6-4 and after the match she admitted to feeling super-motivated.
Gauff had previously defeated Wang twice on clay last year, and notched her first hard-court victory over the former World No.12 in 1 hour and 39 minutes to reach the third round of Miami for the first time. She will next face another Chinese player, Zhang Shuai, who routed No.24 seed Sorana Cirstea 6-1, 6-1 in only 53 minutes.
She said:
"I was just super-motivated today. Extra motivation because I'm playing at home, and also because I lost before. I feel like everything was working for me today, but especially my mindset - I had an opportunity to serve out the first set and also the last one, but I got broken. But I'm happy that I was able to break back."
