Coco Gauff Makes Amazing History Again

Coco Gauff has claimed her third tournament win of the season with victory over Karolina Muchova in the Southern and Western Open final on Sunday.

The seventh-seeded American teenager produced a strong performance to see off the world number 17 6-3 6-4 in one hour and 56 minutes in Cincinnati.

The 19-year-old’s victory will ensure she climbs to number six in the WTA rankings on Monday while Czech Muchova can console herself with a spot in the top 10.

Muchova showed her battling qualities in the second set as she saved three match points when trailing 5-2 and pulled one break back, but Gauff was not to be denied.

“This is unbelievable,” Gauff said during the post-match trophy presentation. “I’m just happy to be here for this moment.
