Emerging female tennis player Coco Gauff has beaten Venus Williams, winning 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 under the roof on Margaret Court Arena on the opening day of the Australian Open.
With such feat, Gauff, 15, is celebrated globally, with her success in the first round at the All England Club last summer.
According to Sky Sports, practically, her profile can be seen in her position and rating as she falls among top 100 players.
Although, the result came as less of a shock because Venus was already in doubt for the tournament, with a hip injury.
Apart from her winning streak and prowess, the talented American tennis star also displayed maturity well beyond her years to battle through after nerves kicked in during the first set.
During the game, Gauff led 5-3 and had three set points, while a 5-2 lead in the tie-break also disappeared, but a missed backhand volley from Venus at 5-6 helped her young opponent over the line in the opener
Expressing her Joy as there were no wobbles, Gauff said: “That was really difficult, she played really well. I was really nervous for today’s match. I was a bit shocked, I’m sure everybody was shocked, when they saw that draw, but I’m really glad to get through.
