Codey chose to sit this one out. However, just before Coco Gauff was about to embark on the thrilling jump, she found a rare display of love for her from his brother. She said, “The only time this year, the only time I remember him saying, it was right before we jumped off the Sky Tower. He said, ‘If anything happens, I just want to say I love you guys’. That was the first time he told me, I told him that I loved him this year. It’s been like, what, three weeks in the year.”
