History was made this past weekend for Coco Gauff. Ultimately, she was the first teenager to win the US Open since Serena Williams in 1999. This is quite a feat to accomplish, and we are sure to see Coco in years to come. Furthermore, Coco was able to defeat the Russian player, Aryna Sabalenka. In the end, Coco took home the title and celebrated by hugging her parents and coaches.
Deeper Look at the Match
Going into the final match, many were unsure who would take home the title. With Aryna ranked as number 2 in the world, and Coco as number 6, many thought the Russian had it. Yet, Coco came ready to play. After losing the first set, Coco was able to gear up for the next two. She had a fire under her, and she was able to defeat her opponent in the next two sets.
Coco’s speed was what helped her win the match. Meanwhile, she is one of the fastest players in the tournament. However, the advantage many thought Aryna had over her was her strength and power. Also, Aryna is a very powerful player who thrives on her serves and returns. Therefore, Coco’s main hurdle was getting Aryna’s serves back. In the end, she was able to win many games against Aryna in which she was not serving. Finally, by breaking Aryna’s strong serves and hits, Coco was undefeatable.
All in all, Coco celebrated her win on the court by falling to the ground crying. In the end, this was a dream of hers since she was a little girl. There is a video of her at the US Open in 2012 where she is dancing. This video is ironic because it foreshadows her future as a US Open Champion just a few years later.
As soon as Coco won, she went up in the stands to hug her parents and coaches. She says they are some of her biggest supporters. In her winning speech, she talks about how thankful she was for the fans who were cheering her on during the tournament. New York City was a great place to take home this US player’s first grand slam win. Finally, Coco says her downfalls this past summer have made this moment worth it. She goes on to thank those who have doubted her because they only fueled her fire.
Future Looks Bright for Coco Gauff
The future is looking good for tennis player Coco Gauff. She will move up the ranks to be at number 2. Her opponent, Aryna Sabalenka will be moving up as well. She now sits at number 1 in the world. Dispite her loss, she made it to the US Open finals which is a huge feat in itself. In conclusion, we look forward to seeing what will happen to Coco in the upcoming years!
