Coco Gauff Wins French Open

“After I lost the first two (doubles) finals, I thought, ‘Well, OK, I reached that point. Maybe I should focus on singles.’ Same thing, US Open. When I won it, I didn’t expect to win. I was having a really bad year. Then here, I didn’t even expect to play. I think it’s funny how life teaches you those lessons.”

 

 

 

Coco Gauff Wins French Open Doubles Title Days After Calling for Change to Tennis Rules

 

 

Gauff’s journey to the top prize at the annual tournament wasn’t a seamless journey. During her semifinal match on Thursday, June 6, Gauff got into a heated dispute with chair umpire Aurélie Tourte when she overruled a call that benefitted competitor Iga Świątek.

“In other sports, there are usually multiple refs making a decision. … I definitely think at this point, it’s almost ridiculous we don’t have it. Not just speaking because that happened to me, but I just think every sport has it.”
