Rising tennis superstar Coco Gauff continues to etch her name in the record books.
Rising tennis superstar Coco Gauff continues to etch her name in the record books. With her dominating fourth round win at the Australian Open on Jan. 21 the 19-year-old matched a feat last accomplished by Serena Williams over two decades ago.
By defeating Magdalena Fręch 6-1, 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals, Gauff now has six Grand Slam quarterfinal appearances as a teenager in the 21st century, Tennis World reports.
Gauff sailed past Fręch in straight sets by immediately seizing control of the match, Tennis World reports. She broke Fręch’s serve in the very first game and never took her foot off the gas pedal. Gauff broke again in the fifth and seventh games to easily claim the first set 6-1.
The second set followed a similar script, with Gauff earning another break in the fourth game the tennis outlet noted. The young athlete wrapped up the rout by breaking Fręch once more in the final game to complete the 6-2 second set triumph.
Given Gauff’s dominant form after winning Auckland and not dropping a set in Melbourne, she is on her way to being the heavy favorite to defeat Kostyuk again and advance to her first Australian Open semifinal, Tennis World reported.
