Coco Gauf defeats Venus Williams at the Australian Open Tennis Championships in Melbourne
Coco Gauff repeated her victory at Wimbledon over Venus Williams
Winning 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 under the roof at Margaret Court Arena on the opening day of the Australian Open.
The success of a 15-year-old girl in the first round at the All-English club last summer brought her world fame.
With Gauff, who is now in the top 100 players – and Venus was a doubt for the tournament with a hip injury – this result was less shocking.
The young American showed maturity much longer than her years, to break through her nerves during the first set.
Gauff led with a score of 5: 3 and had three set points, while the advantage with a score of 5: 2 in the tie-break also disappeared
But the missed salvo to the left of Venus at 5: 6 helped her young opponent overcome the line in the newcomer.
There was no hesitation in the second, and Gauf said: “It was really difficult, she played very well.
I was very nervous about today’s match.
I was a little shocked, I’m sure everyone was shocked when they saw this draw. ” but I’m really happy to get through this. “
