It’s back to school now for Wimbledon sensation Coco Gauff

Despite knocking Williams out of the Wimbledon tournament, the tennis superstar had nothing but praise for Gauff after their match-up.

Her wild debut run at Wimbledon came to an end, however, when she lost Monday in the fourth round to Romania's Simona Halep, 27, in a 6-3, 6-3 result.

"Even if the restrictions weren't there, I still think I wouldn't play as much as the older players do, just because I'm still trying to develop my game and I'm still trying to train", Gauff said.

"I think the most I'm going to remember is the crowd here", Cori said of her Wimbledon run.

A military veteran and Buckeye State native, I've written for the likes of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle and the Detroit Free Press. "I learned a lot and I'm really thankful for this experience".

She was the U.S. Open junior runner-up at age 13, the French Open junior champion at 14. Gauff struggled with her forehand and had 29 unforced errors, though she battled throughout.

She brought up match-point on her serve and a fierce contest was brought to a halt when Barty sent a backhand wide, leaving Riske to relax and enjoy the moment.

Breakout American teenage tennis phenom Cori "Coco" Gauff deliberate forward of time what she used to be going to dispute to her childhood idol Venus Williams after playing her at Wimbledon.

In the men's draw, Rafa Nadal continued his impressive form by beating Joao Sousa 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in just one hour and 45 minutes.

Roger Federer, the record eight-time champion at the All England Club, was playing Matteo Berrettini later Monday.

Barty is coming off a title at the French Open last month, her first Grand Slam singles title.

"My teachers definitely let me take a break a little so I could focus on my matches". "But I wager simply placing within the work undoubtedly raised my self belief because I knew how laborious I labored and I knew what photos I would invent and what became as soon as most likely". My goal was to play my best. "I try to be a better person on court", Halep told the BBC in a post-match interview. All I knew is, 'Oh, I play tomorrow.' My mind has just been somewhere else.

Despite a straight-sets defeat by Halep, Gauff leaves London knowing she has left her mark. She easily closed it out from there.

Gauff is the youngest player since 1991 to make it to the fourth round at Wimbledon and while her Cinderella story ended on Monday when she lost to former world No. 1 Simona Halep, the 15-year-old is looking ahead to the future. With this easily grabbed win, Halep set her meeting with Chinese player Zhang Shuai on Tuesday. Past year at this point, ESPN was averaging 620,000 viewers. She won two more points in her next game with aces, as well. She looked out of sorts against Halep, an upset stomach blighting her performance as the Romanian former world number one proved a challenge too far for a player who, only a couple of weeks ago, was sitting a science exam. "But my next goal would be to win the next tournament I play. I had to take it to Ash". She's eligible for up to seven more professional tournaments before March, when she turns 16.

Then, the youngster knelt down by her chair for a prayer - a spiritual practice that sticks with her ever since her Dad suggested the pair pray together before heading out on the match court. They can get motivated. She was never just going to roll over.

Gauff showed fight despite the straight-sets loss. Gauff went to the doctor during the second set and was given a tablet, prompting questions over if she was feeling sick, The Guardian reported. She asked for treatment again at 4-1.
