Things didn’t go as planned for Naomi Osaka in this years Australia Open, as she was defeated by 15-year-old Coco Gauff earlier today.
It is the biggest win for the youngster, and it took her only sixty-seven (67) minutes.
The young American sensation stunned the world No.3 by defeating her 6-3 6-4 in straights sets at The Rod Laver Arena on Friday to book her place in the fourth round in Melbourne.
After the game, an excited Cocu Gauff said:
“Two years ago, I lost in the first round at juniors and now I’m here!”
‘What is my life? Oh my gosh, Two years ago I lost first round in juniors, and now I’m here. This is crazy,’ said Gauff, who is still doing schoolwork online.
‘I was just telling myself one point at a time and keep fighting because you never know what happens on this court. I’m on Rod Laver Arena, I can’t believe this.’
The win comes four days after she defeated tennis legend, Venus Williams, in the first round of the Australian Open.
Cocu will now face either American Sofia Kenin or Shuai Zhang of China in the next round.
