French Open

With a quick victory against Russian qualifier Julia Avdeeva (a record of 6-1 6-1), Coco Gauff advanced easily to the second round of the French Open. She defeated Avdeeva with ease, conceding just two games (one at the beginning of each set) and won 23 of 24 points while serving first.

Gauff’s victory marked the 50th grand slam main draw match, while Andeeva was participating in a major main draw for the first time.

The athlete declared with her victory: “It was a good day for me… She played well today, I think I was just the better player.”

She will now play against Tamara Zidanšek of the Czech Republic, a qualifier who advanced to the French Open semifinals three years prior– which was by far her best-ever performance at a major slam.

Gauff considered some of her long-term professional objectives and stated: “I just want to win as many slams as possible…Being inspired by Serena Williams – she’s the one and true and only GOAT – but I think being inspired by her, it allowed me to make my dreams as limitless as possible.” 

“I was taught from a young age to make your dreams as big as possible, even if they don’t feel realistic,” she added.
