Coco Gauff’s brazen performance on the court at such a little age has wowed spectators and opponents alike.
She made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the French Open last year, where she met and was defeated by eventual champion Barbora Krejcikova. The tournament has started off well for her, just as it did last year.
Recognition for Gauff A Boost To Nick Kyrgios’s Career
Coco Gauff, a youngster from the United States, has said that the controversial Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios helped her advance in her career.
Kyrgios has already stirred up trouble at the US Open with his flamboyant antics and talent.
Gauff says that Kyrgios, 27, is frequently the center of controversy, clashing with officials, spectators, fellow players, and anybody else who will listen. This has not helped his own situation.
He has also not been shy about poking fun at his fellow players or challenging the authorities, which has often resulted in unfavorable press coverage.
Gauff, now 18 years old, has a great deal of admiration for Kyrgios and has explained why she thinks he is a decent guy.
Following his runner-up performance to Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon and his victory at the Citi Open, Nick Kyrgios has emerged as one of the ATP Tour’s hottest performers in recent weeks.
Many consider him a top contender to take home the US Open trophy after he advanced to the quarterfinals at the Canadian Open and stunned then-number one, Daniil Medvedev.
Gauff predicted that “If he keeps it up, I think he can go far.” He has a good shot at taking first place in the competition. Of course, he can; we’ve all seen his abilities. He almost had it at Wimbledon.
As an honest person, I can say, “I always, always root for him, no matter who he’s playing.”
Gauff Thinks Kyrgios Is Better than His Bad-Boy Reputation.
“I was 13 when we first hit together at the Miami Open; he probably doesn’t remember it.
He finished up his workout, whacked for half an hour with me, “Gauff made it to the round of 16 on Friday after beating fellow American Madison Keys.
“That’s the kind of stuff that sticks out in my mind. Because of how friendly he is whenever we cross paths, I find it impossible to harbor any animosity towards him.”
After Losing Their First-Round Us Open Doubles Match Due to Bad Luck, Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula Felt Cheated.
After splitting the first two sets, the second-seeded duo advanced to the third round of women’s doubles, where they faced the 2021 singles finalists Leylah Fernandez and Daria Saville of Australia and were ultimately defeated in a 10-point tiebreak.
Gauff’s successful overhead volley during the deciding third set of the marathon match gave the home team hope that they would pull off an unlikely comeback. Tensions flared after a paper napkin flew onto the field during the rally.
Gauff appeared to recapture the mini-break that Fernandez and Saville had served up at 7-5 with a volley and a put-away smash on top of the net for a score of 7-6.
