Great News: Coco Gauff Loses to Simona Halep, Ending Magical Wimbledon Run ||

England — Coco Gauff’s dreamy first Wimbledon came to an end in the fourth round on this Monday

Gauff, a precocious 15-year-old American, was defeated, 6-3, 6-3, by Simona Halep, And a former No. 1 player, who proved too consistent and resourceful from the baseline for the 313th-ranked youngster.

  • But on this Monday defeat hardly erased the impact that Gauff made in the first week of her first Wimbledon.
  •  After receiving a wild card into the qualifying tournament, she won six straight matches: three in qualifying and three in the main singles draw. She defeated the five-time Wimbledon singles champion Venus Williams and the veterans Magdalena Rybarikova and Polona Hercog.

Though Gauff was often brilliant in the early going on Monday on the same No. 1 Court where she defeated Williams and Rybarikova, she could not sustain her level of play. Her forehand, a fine shot but not yet a great shot, often was the weak link in the long and fast-twitch baseline rallies.

Gauff said. I learned how to play in front of a big crowd. I learned what it was like to be under pressure. I learned a lot and I’m really thankful for this experience.

By Info, she was not feeling 100 percent. She was visited by a trainer during the match to deal with what appeared to be a stomach problem.
