15-year-old Coco Gauff's first Grand Slam run continues

Cori Gauff

"Your voice becomes louder the more you can swing that racket", explains the father of 15-year-old Coco Gauff.

But Gauff evened up the score in the second set, benefiting off Hercog's errors to earn the win, 7-6 (7).

She's poised to play Romanian Simona Halep on Monday.

Gauff, clearly already supremely confident on the big stage, was keen to push her other music interests, too. I don't have her number or anything.

"Then after the next day, after I played Venus, everybody was screaming my name". Speaking after her third round victory today, the youngster said she was going to "buy some more hoodies" with the prize money saying she couldn't by a auto as she can't drive. Her play then offered yet another reminder how capable she is of handling it all.

Now she is the youngest woman to reach the second week of a Grand Slam tournament since a 15-year-old Jennifer Capriati made it to the Wimbledon semifinals in 1991.

Coco Gauff stormed back in dramatic fashion to advance to the fourth round of Wimbledon Friday, topping Slovenia's Polona Hercog 3-6, 7-6 (9-7), 7-5.

The American, who received a wildcard for qualifying, has become the star attraction of these championships following her stunning opening round win over five-time champion Venus Williams, then a second-round win over Magdalena Rybarikova.

Lionel Messi, Gary Medel Sent Off After Scuffle In Copa America Game
Argentina finished third following win over La Roja as Brazil will take on Peru in the finals on Sunday, July 6, at the Maracana. But Messi was shown a red following a clash with Gary Medel , which also saw the Chile player dismissed.

"I think there are some 15-year-olds, like me, who wouldn't know what to do at Wimbledon", Williams told reporters.

It's a quality that her strength and conditioning coach, Jeff Drock, said she's always had.

An early break saw her steam into a 4-1 lead but Hercog fought back immediately to bring to match to boiling point in the third and final set.

As for Gauff, she said she was taking it "one tournament at a time". I told them I wanted to go.

Grace Warrington, 27, from Clapham, London, said: "If I were a kid watching her on TV I would probably want to play tennis". "I sit there and go, like, 'What in the world is going on?'"

The singer is a regular visitor, alongside her husband Jay-Z, to Serena Williams' matches at grand slam events, and Gauff said said she had been stunned at the reaction to her Wimbledon performances, including recognition from Beyonce's mother.

"I was able to hit a couple of good serves". Gauff said beating Williams, who she considers an idol, a real turning point for her in terms of fame. "I was super happy that his album came out because it's been long-anticipated, at least for me".
