Corey Gauff was talking to his daughter during her match against Laura Siegmund at the WTA Auckland Classic.
You know the one thing you did in the last three games, you didn’t give up no free points on her damn serve”.
As soon as he said this, Coco was quick to rebuke him for cursing (using the d-word, as Coco put it). “You can’t curse…you said the D-word”. 
As her father said that it didn’t really count, Coco quickly rebounded saying that it did at some places.
The father-daughter interaction was heart touching for most twitter users.
Unfortunately, the pep talk couldn’t help Coco secure a victory in the match as she lost 5-7, 6-2, 6-3 to Laura Siegmund. The 15-year-old is a prodigy in the world of tennis. Last year, she became the youngest player to make the main draw at Wimbledon.
In fact, she beat her ideal Venus Williams en route to the fourth round of the competition.
