Venus Williams chooses unique way to congratulate Coco Gauff on US Open win

Coco Gauff gets a massive praise from Serena Williams' former coach

The last women’s US Open saw the final rise of nineteen-year-old tennis player Coco Gauff on the WTA circuit. The American has always been identified as a baby prodigy but she always sails at the top without obtaining victories.After a few years of waiting, her first great results have finally arrived.

The American tour first saw victories in Washington and Cincinnati and then the consecration in Flushing Meadows. In front of her family Coco came from behind to beat the new world number one Aryna Sabalenka in the final, achieving a historic success. Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena Williams’s former coach, stalked about the secrets of the young American teenager’s victory at the US Open 2023.The French coach explained: “The difference that I see in the Coco of before and the Coco of today is that she is mentally more calm.

She matured so much in the last two months. I have seen some big changes in her attitude on the court and the attitude is just the consequence of how you feel inside. She had one match very key for me was the one against Caroline Wozniacki when she lost the second and was one down in the third.

And I could see because I know her very well. I think it was obvious, the panic taking her completely. And from one point to the other literally, she started to play unbelievable. She refused to lose. And if you look at the scenario of that final, same she didn’t panic, and that makes such a difference.

She wasn’t able to do that a year ago; now, she is. The way she moves and her ability to defend and bring so many balls back which is by far the best of the women’s game, and you can’t compare her with any single woman.”
Coco Gauff talks about her feelings after the US Open win

In the press conference after the victory at the US Open, Coco also told how she felt after this success: “My father was the first person I saw, it’s really the first time I saw him cry.

At the Roland Garros he didn’t cry, I’m sure I saw it. I also rarely see my mother cry and I will never forget these moments. I’m really happy, my father has always supported me in everything. People tried to separate us, he said that he shouldn’t be in my box or that there was no need for him to train me. The truth is this, he is the reason I won this game.”
