Wimbledon 2019: Coco Gauff beats Magdalena Rybarikova to reach third round

What sort of advice has Gauff been getting from her parents?

Cori "Coco" Gauff has made headlines at The Championship this week after the 15-year-old American became the youngest player to make the Third Round of Wimbledon since 1991 and her form didn't go unnoticed by Roger Federer.

If we thought that her confident win in the generational clash with 39-year-old Venus Williams was a sign, her second-round win was somehow even more striking. Her first big splash at the ITF junior level was reaching the girls final of the 2017 U.S. Open at 13.

"This is not the first time she has had to deal with pressure, but she surprises me with some of the fight she comes up with", Gauff's father, and coach, Corey told Reuters.

Rybarikova, who has dropped to 139th in the rankings, was already beginning to feel the pace and in the sixth game Gauff turned up the dial her groundstrokes to secure the first break.

"She played her game", Odom said.

The youngest Wimbledon qualifier in the Open Era, she has yet to drop a set at the tournament having played five matches, including the three in qualifying. "When she did it, we all broke down and just cried".

Did not seem that way once she stepped on the court.

She was Venus's hitting partner for the US Fed Cup past year and has trained with Serena's coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, at his academy in the south of France. He had refrained from showing up in the first match.

Cori "Coco" Gauff is headed to Wimbledon's third round after beating Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round on Wednesday.

Last October, she was stunned to be approached by Serena - herself nicknamed "Goat", or "Greatest of All Time".

Gauff built on that momentum with an early break in the second, taking a 2-1 lead when a Rybarikova forehand on double break point went long.

Je suis rassurée que le Dr Sanchez ne se sente pas menacé par les promesses de procès émises par les parents. Le médecin de Vincent Lambert a annoncé un nouvel arrêt des soins à compter d'aujourd'hui, mardi 2 juillet.


At 1-3, 15-40 down, Rybarikova managed a good hold that could have given her a boost and thrown her much younger opponent off.

Gauff looked sharp from the off, leaving her Slovakian opponent to watch helplessly as she ran down drop shots and ripped victor after winner down the lines with both forehand and backhand, closing out the win with her second service break of a match that lasted 69 minutes.

It's hard to believe that when Gauff was 7, mom Candi said, she was the worst player in her tennis program. For someone who looked up the Williams sisters growing up, it must have been an overwhelming moment. "Don't focus too much on what happened.' My goal is to win it", she said. Because my mindset improved, my tennis definitely changed.

"I think I can beat anyone who's across the court".

The expectations from her were already sky high and she backed them up with the second round win. She'll have plenty of chances between now and Friday, when she'll face Polona Hercog in the third round. The Slovenian knocked out 17th seed Madison Keys with her own versatile style. "Ya'll, I was practising and Serena Williams came and said hi to me", she wrote on Instagram.
