Let’s go Coco


It felt like it was a matter of time… American Coco Gauff has won her first Grand Slam title, winning the US Open final against Aryna Sabalenka in a 3-set thriller 2-6, 6-3, 6-2. With the backing of a home crowd filled with celebs in New York, the 19yo’s the first teenager to win the tournament since Serena Williams in 1999. “Honestly thank you to the people who didn’t believe in me. To those who thought they were putting water on my fire, they were putting gas on my fire and I’m burning so bright right now,” she said, trophy in hand. Coming close to a win was Aussie Matt Ebden – he and men’s doubles partner Rohan Bopanna went down in 3 sets in their final. And this morning, Novak Djokovic is aiming for Grand Slam win #24. Standing in his way is Daniil Medvedev, who beat Djokovic in the 2021 US Open final.
