Coco Gauff wins US Open

“Coco Gauff, still a teenager, wasn’t shy about her pre-game social media use. Just 10 minutes before her U.S. Open final, she was scrolling through her phone in the locker room, reading various comments, including some negative ones that only fueled her determination.

As a professional athlete since a young age, Coco Gauff has faced both great expectations and doubts. However, she’s always embraced challenges and setbacks as opportunities for growth. Now, at a tournament she used to attend as a child to watch her idols, Serena and Venus Williams, Gauff stands as a Grand Slam champion and a bona fide star.

Putting aside a rocky start, Gauff roared back to secure a 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Aryna Sabalenka in the Arthur Ashe Stadium final. The crowd, passionately supporting her throughout, witnessed history as Gauff became the youngest American to win a major since Serena Williams claimed her first of 23 titles at the 1999 U.S. Open, when she was just 17.”
