Coco Gauff, an American professional tennis player, gained extensive recognition in 2019 when she acquired a wildcard entry to Wimbledon.

Coco Gauff has obtained seven career singles titles and nine career doubles titles. Her career achievements include the 2023 US Open and the 2024 French Open. Gauff holds career-high rankings of world No. 2 and No. 1 in singles and doubles, respectively.

Born on March 13, 2004, in Delray Beach, Florida, US, Coco Gauff won the US Open women’s title in 2023. When she was 19, Gauff became only the third US teenager to win the national women’s title.

By beating Venus Williams, one of her childhood idols, at the Wimbledon Championships, Coco Gauff rose to prominence in the sport at age of just 15.

Cori Dionne Gauff held a tennis racket when she was barely school-age. She told her parents that she wanted to be the best player globally.

Corey Gauff and Candi Odom Gauff, parents of Coco Gauff, had been accomplished collegiate athletes.

Competing in hurdles and heptathlon, Corey played basketball for Georgia State University while Candi attended Florida State University on a full athletic scholarship.

When she was seven, Gauff was training with tennis two hours a day. Richard Williams had set with his tennis prodigy daughters– Venus and Serena.

When she was at age 10, Gauff was learning her sport at a French academy. She was the youngest US Open junior girl’s finalist in history at the age of 13 in 2018 and became one of the youngest winners of the French Open junior girl’s tournament at the age of 14.

Gauff was still known by her birth name, as a teenager and a relative newcomer to the international tennis scene. Another moniker had long known her at home.
