More history for Gauff

Coco Gauff is the youngest American women’s player to make the semi-finals of Grand Slams on multiple occasions (2) since Serena Williams made the semi-finals of the US Open 1999 and Wimbledon 2000.

“It feels great. I’m so happy,” said Gauff. “Last year I lost at the quarter-final stage; I wanted to do better this year.

“I still have a long way to go, but I’m happy and I’m ready to get back to work for the next one!”
