Gauff goes the dis­tance

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport -

Coco Gauff ousted sec­ond seed Aryna Sa­balenka in the round of 16 last night, in a match that ex­tended to nearly three hours in hot and hu­mid con­di­tions. De­spite los­ing rhythm on her serve – which coughed up 10 dou­ble faults – Gauff, 16, showed the re­silience that has made her the hottest young tal­ent in the game, com­ing through 7-6, 4-6, 6-4. Sa­balenka was even more wob­bly on serve, in a match that fea­tured seven breaks apiece. Asked what grade she would give her per­for­mance, Gauff replied: “Ev­ery­thing was an A but the serv­ing.”
