Coco Gauff Facts
- A child prodigy, Coco had started competing on the ITF (International Tennis Federation) Junior Circuit from the age of 13. Later that year, at the junior 2017 US Open, just her 4th ITF event, she had become the youngest finalist in the tournament’s history.
- She had won the junior 2018 French Open singles event and had become the number 1 ranked junior player in the world. She had also won the doubles title at the junior 2018 US Open.
- Coco had first come into the spotlight at the 2019 Wimbledon Championship where she had defeated her idol, Venus Williams, in the opening round. While Venus (aged 39) was the oldest player in the main draw of that tournament, Coco had become the youngest player to win a main draw singles match at Wimbledon since Jennifer Capriati in 1991.
- At the Linz Open held in October 2019, she had entered the main draw as a lucky loser. However, she went on to win the tournament and became the youngest player to win a singles title on the WTA Tour since 2004.
- She had also reached the semifinal stage in the doubles event of the tournament and had consequently broken into the ‘Top 100’ of both the singles and the doubles rankings for the first time in her career. This had made her the youngest player ever to break into the ‘Top 100’ of the WTA‘s singles rankings.
