15 Year-old Coco Gauff Storms Back for Another Wimbledon Upset!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Especially this talented acer… Cori “Coco” Gauff.
Cori “Coco” Gauff’s remarkable Wimbledon run isn’t over.
The 15-year-old American pulled off another HUGE UPSET Friday, this one in a third-round thriller that saw her come back to beat Slovenian Polona Hercog 3-6, 7-6, 7-5.
After taking down Venus Williams in the first round & Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round — both in straight sets — Gauff had her back against the wall after losing the first set & trailing Hercog 5-2 in the second set.
But that’s when the teenager dug down & found another gear. Gauff rallied to force a tiebreak, which she won 9-7, & fed off the crowd at the All England Club to win the decisive third set.
Gauff advances to the fourth round to face No. 7-seeded Simona Halep on Monday.
The 28-year-old Hercog looked to have the match won late in the second set. Hercog, ranked No. 60 in the world, was able to use her low-slicing style & court movement early on to overwhelm Gauff, who entered as No. 313 in the world.
Gauff’s three victories have made her a darling at Wimbledon, as she became the youngest tennis player to win a match in the prestigious tournament since Jennifer Capriati in 1991. After stunning Williams 6-4, 6-4 in straight sets, she then defeated Rybarikova 6-3, 6-3 in the second round.
