Watch: Gauff from dancing in the stands to winning US Open

NEW DELHI: Dreams are meant to come true. With sheer will power and immense determination, focus and hard work, anything is possible. It stands true in the case of Coco Gauff who became the first American teenager to win the country’s major tennis tournament since Serena Williams in 1999.
Gauff burst onto the scene at 15 by becoming the youngest qualifier in


history and making it to the fourth round in her

Grand Slam

debut in 2019. She reached her initial major final at last year’s

French Open

, finishing as the runner-up to

Iga Swiatek

As a pro athlete from a young age, as someone of whom greatness has been expected by some and doubted by others, Gauff has always taken it all in and kept moving forward, trying to learn from each setback. And now, at a tournament she used to visit as a kid to see her idols, Serena and Venus Williams, Gauff is a Grand Slam champion herself and a certified star.
Setting aside a so-so start Saturday, Gauff surged to a 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over the soon-to-be-No. 1

Aryna Sabalenka

in the final at Arthur Ashe Stadium, delighting a raucous crowd that backed her from start to finish.

The official social media handle of

US Open

shared a video of Gauff dancing in the stands as a kid with the caption: “

Coco Gauff

went from being a kid in the stands to a US Open champion. Anything is possible.”
