Gauff loses at Wimbledon, while Williams wins again

Gauff loses at Wimbledon, while Williams wins again

15-year-old Cori Gauff crashed out of Wimbledon 2019 after suffering defeat against former World No. 1 Simona Halep. To get there in the first place, Gauff became the youngest player to ever qualify for Wimbledon. Halep was jittery early on, especially on her serve but the American could not take advantage. At 5-2, the seventh seed forced two match points but, once again, the teenager showed incredible courage to fight back from 15-40 down to hold serve.

But she sure announced herself as a contender for years to come.

Meanwhile, eight-time Wimbledon singles champion Roger Federer said in a press conference: "Coco's doing an incredible job, it's fun to watch.she's really won over all the hearts from all the fans around the world who like tennis".

Prior to the match, she had chatted with Roger Federer and was watched in practice by Rafael Nadal and, in a performance that belied her years, she looked at home on the grass as she wrapped up victory in straight sets.

Williams reached the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, then retired from a match at Indian Wells, withdrew from matches in Miami and Rome, and then played at the French Open.


The 16 remaining players in both the men's and women's singles draw take to the court on the same day as they attempt to reach the quarter-finals of this prestigious Grand Slam.

Teen rising star Cori Gauff has vowed to "never give up" after being knocked out of Wimbledon and said she was "surprised" by the level of support she had had from British fans.

Despite this lost she will move into the world's top 150, no mean achievement for someone rated in the 800s at the start of 2018 as well as earning £176,875 in prize money. I learned a lot and I'm really thankful for this experience. First of all, I didn't play like that.

"And win or lose, I'll still look up to her".

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams also booked a spot in the quarterfinals for the 14th time after beating Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2 on Monday.


"I can't put into words how I feel, I don't know how long it will take until it sinks in". If I went into this match saying, 'Let me see how many games I can get against her, ' then I most definitely would not have won.

From 4-3 in the first, Halep won four consecutive games and surged to 2-0 in the second.

Also, No. 8 Elina Svitolina beat No. 24 Petra Martic 6-4, 6-2, and Zhang Shuai defeated Dayana Yastremska 6-4, 1-6, 6-2.

But the youngster's fighting spirit was demonstrated when she broke back immediately.
