Remember the name Coco Gauff. For those of you that don’t follow tennis, after becoming the youngest woman to every qualify for Wimbledon, Gauff became the youngest player since Jennifer Capriatti in 1992 to advance to the fourth round. She did so by defeating her idol (and the oldest player in the tournament) Venus Williams in her opening match, dominating her second match opponent and overcoming not one, but two match points for a comeback victory in her third. It was a sensational performance that ended at the hands of the No. 7 player in the world, Simona Halep, who went on to win the tournament. Gauff entered the tournament ranked No. 313 and left ranked No. 141 and gave us a glimpse into the future of women’s tennis.
