Everybody has been talking about the rise of Coco Gauff, and for good reason. At only 19 years old, she has been tipped as one of the world’s best tennis players.

The Rise of Coco Gauff

Already, she has been ranked as world No. 1 in doubles and No. 4 in singles by the Women’s Tennis Association in 2022 Hailing from Delray Beach, Florida, she has many Floridian tennis fans very excited about what her success could do for the state.

Upbringing and Introduction to Tennis

Born on March 13th, 2004, Coco Gauff was interested in tennis from a young age, inspired by the incredible Serena Williams. She began playing herself when she was six years old and never looked back. By the time she was ten, she was training in France at the Mouratoglou Academy under the tutelage of Patrick Mouratoglou, who famously coached Serena Williams.

It was clear that Gauff was determined to make it big, with Mouratoglou noting her “fighting spirit” and “athleticism”. She won the USTA Clay Court 12-and-under title when she was just ten, becoming the youngest champion in the history of the tournament.

Professional Performance History

Coco Gauff’s professional career is full of success and accomplishments. From her debut in May 2018 at the ITF Women’s Circuit, where she won her first professional match, to her most recent win in August at the Washington Open, where she beat Maria Sakkari in the final and became the first teenager to triumph at the tournament.

Since the beginning of her career performances, Gauff has moved from strength to strength, handling both her wins and losses with poise and professionalism.

What Does Gauff’s Future Look Like?

Of course, the future looks bright for Coco Gauff. Experts have been predicting her next big win, and predictions are coming in thick and fast following her win against Laura Siegemund in the US Open.

Gauff’s most recent match was against Mirra Andreeva in the US Open round of 64, where she defeated her 6-3, 6-2 in 76 minutes. The odds were +700 to Gauff and +6600 to Andreeva, which made for some pretty exciting wagers from sports fans. Thanks to Gauff, tennis has become one of Florida’s trends in sports betting this year, with more people than ever banking on her success.

With the whole of Florida backing her, Gauff could make Florida the best tennis state in the United States if she continues in the direction she is moving in. There are even early predictions that Coco Gauff could have a chance of securing her first Grand Slam title in the US Open, having already won titles at Washington and Cincinnati.

After already making it through the second round at the time of writing, current odds place Gauff at +650 to win the US Open. This puts her in a favorable position alongside other frontrunners Iga Swiatek, Aryna Sabalenka, and Elena Rybakina.

Recent News

Gauff’s win at the US Open against Laura Siegemund was rife with tensions, putting both tennis stars on the front pages. Although Gauff beat Siegemund 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 in the match, it was not a clear-cut victory. The game lasted for nearly three hours due to the stalling strategies of Gauff’s opponent. Siegemund repeatedly waited out the amount of time in between points, pushing Gauff to explain her frustrations to the umpire, Marijana Veljovic. This resulted in Laura Siegemund receiving a point penalty and a second time violation.
