Coco Gauff can win a Grand Slam in 2020 – The Eye of the Coach #6
In The Eye of the Coach #6, Patrick Mouratoglou claims that Cori Gauff can win a Grand Slam in 2020, even if she lost to Sofia Kenin in the fourth round at the Australian Open 2020.
In The Eye of the Coach #6, Patrick Mouratoglou claims that Coco Gauff can win a Grand Slam in 2020, even if she lost to Sofia Kenin in the fourth round at the Australian Open 2020. The young American started very well, but declined physically during the game (6-7, 6-3, 6-0).
“She had a tough match. She played someone who played very well. She doesn’t look like it, because her shots are not incredible. The way she moves, how she defends. She returned Coco incredibly well.”
Despite this loss, Coco Gauff is already capable of winning a Grand Slam. She has the game to beat the best players in the world, like she did against Naomi Osaka in Melbourne.
“The tennis is already big. Big serve. Unbelievable backhand. When it’s a pressure point, she would go for it. Sometimes, she played return-volley to put pressure on her opponent. It’s not enough, there is still space for the opponent to win the point. Her maturity is incredible for a 15-year-old.”
Coco Gauff proved she is ready for big stages
She has this incredible level at only 15, which shows she has a big potential and so many things to improve.
“She already beat Venus Williams and Osaka. She’s been in the second week of Wimbledon last year and of the Australian Open this year. At that age, having so much to improve says everything about her potential.”
At only 15 years old, Coco Gauff already reached the fourth round of two Grand Slams. At Wimbledon in 2019 and at the Australian Open this year. By beating Naomi Osaka, the defending champion, in Melbourne, she proved she is ready to play well on big courts against big players. “How she handles matches is pretty unique.” It was her first victory against a Top 5 player. Coco will have all her chances at the French Open in June.
