16-year-old tennis phenom Coco Gauff was twice through the second week of Grand Slams while she was just 15-years-old. Also, before turning 16, she etched her name on the top 50 column of WTA, defeated former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the Linz Open final, and progressed to accept her first WTA title.
Her accomplishments are definitely groundbreaking at such a tender age, but as a perfectionist never really satisfied, Coco aims to take her game to the next level with the support of tech-giant Microsoft.
Microsoft will be partnering Coco’s team and bolster her tennis to the next level. “We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve joined Coco Gauff’s team as her technology partner. Working with someone as extraordinary as she is stepping up all of our games,” Microsoft announced on Instagram.
Being her tech partners, they will support her to analyze the fundamentals of her game more in detail. On Thursday Coco will host an online workshop alongside Microsoft. Earlier, she talked about the significance of technology on the court while a player hits the ball.
Also, Coco Gauff addressed her excitement. “My next big move is to win a slam and technology can help me do that,” Gauff mentioned. “Excited to finally announce that I will be working with Microsoft tech on and off the court. I’m not working hard for what’s now, I work for what’s next.”
