No young man has fascinated the tennis world like Coco Gauff. Being only 16 he reached the fourth round of three out of four hits. And everyone is eager to find out where such a young age can reach. But the pandemic delayed the juggernaut Coco Gauff.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Gauff talked about how her life has changed since she came on tour. He is waiting for the tour to start again. Gauff traveled well before the pandemic while his rankings improved to 49. He is now getting some more time at home due to the pandemic. He is making videos on Tik Tok, learning French and reading books.
“I’m ready to go back and travel again – I like to travel more than I like to stay at home”, said Coco.

Due to the pandemic, the US Open will happen without fans. Coco Gauff was asked about the impact of the crowd and how it could affect his matches in this year’s US Open. Coco has been on tour for only a year and is getting used to all the crowds, autographs and interviews.
“It will be easier for me to cope. I have been on tour for only a year, so I will go back to my younger years when we didn’t have a lot of crowd – when there will be only your parents at the tournament, I will simply return to my – I guess – my house,” said Coco
Super Coach Patrick Mouratoglou trains Coco Gauff. At such a young age, Coco is already practicing with the stars. Someone could guess how many Grand Slams he could win before he turned 18.
