Cori Gauff

Who is Cori Gauff?

Cori “Coco” Gauff was born on March 13 in the year 2004. Gauff is an American junior tennis player and most certainly a rising star. She has the honour of being the youngest qualifier at the Wimbledon Championships 2019.

How old is she?

What makes her achievement even more sensational is the fact that she is only 15-years old.

When did she first start playing

Cori Gauff kick-started her tennis career at the age of seven, especially after she moved to Florida. The sole reason she moved from her birthplace in Atlanta to Florida, was to develop as a player.

Although she has only just been picked out in the ocean of tennis talent, her star continues to shine. Without a doubt, Cori Gauff looks up to the Williams sisters. She has even tried to emulate their journey by traveling to the Mouratoglou Academy in France.

Admittedly, even Mouratoglou was thoroughly impressed with Cori Gauff. Now, her notoriety has only grown after she dumped out the former champion, Venus Williams at the Wimbledon Championships 2019. The Gauff vs Williams match ended with a score of 6-4, 6-4 in the 15-year old’s favor.

Cori Gauff’s Height

Cori Gauff also has a height of 5 feet and 9 inches, making her very tall for her age.

Style of Play

Speaking to the WTA website, the 15-year-old admitted that she was not a fan of volleys and prefers the baseline. In all honesty, it must have been a dream come true to face off against Venus Williams in her very first match.

That dream became even more beautiful when she stunned the 39-year old in the opening round of the Wimbledon Championships 2019. She reached the fourth round and landed up losing to the eventual champion, Simona Halep.

She won her first professional doubles WTA title at Citi Open 2019 in Washington DC, where she was in tandem with Caty McNally.

Records

Among her records, Gauff is the first 15-year-old to compete in the main draw of The Wimbledon Championships 2019. This is the first time such a scenario has come about since Laura Robson was awarded wildcard status in 2009.
