Wimbledon 2019 - Coco Gauff’s dream run ended by Simona Halep

Gauff received a kiss for good luck from her father, Corey, as she walked out onto Court One shortly before 2.30pm.

Up until last week, the 37-year-old had played just 12 times this year due to a series of injury problems but felt she was steadily getting back to full fitness. I have been a very hard worker on court.

She became the youngest player to reach the round of 16 at the All England club since 15-year-old Jennifer Capriati in 1991 by staving off two match points in the second set of an eventual 3-6, 7-6 (9-7), 7-5 win over Polona Hercog of Slovenia on Friday.

Yet again Gauff immediately broke back, but she lost on serve again to gift her opponent a 4-2 lead, and Halep went on to hold match point on a break but Gauff rallied back. Gauff is unmoved, with her own baseline victor and a determined yelp of "c'mon".

Seventh seed Halep, 27, beat the 15-year-old American qualifier 6-3 6-3 to advance to the quarter-finals, where she will play China's Zhang Shuai.

Two more Czech players are also in action.

The 15-year-old Gauff, from Delray Beach, Fla., was the youngest player to qualify for the Wimbledon main draw in the modern era.

While they may look identical, one of these tennis twins is going into Wimbledon today as a favourite to win.

Plans for a brief trip to London, possibly including a West End show, have gone out of the window for Corey and mum Candi. Being happy, being relaxed and keep having the passion for what she's doing.

"Ms Tina Knowles, Beyonce's mum, posted me on Instagram and I was screaming!" she said in her post-match press conference. But as always, the real money for Gauff won't come from her prize winnings or the sport's performance bonuses (as lucrative as they may be), but from product endorsements.

'And the juniors are here now for the junior events so she gets to see some of her friends'.
