Gauff has by far taken the Australian Open by storm. It looks like an easy walk for her and her form is simply unstoppable. So far, she has managed to eliminate tennis stars like Katerina Siniakova and Emma Raducanu. She also took down fellow American Bernarda Pera in the third round earlier today.
