Wimbledon 2019

She looks like a younger Venus, unfortunately she get Venus in the first round - youngest versus oldest.  :(

Gauff makes history as youngest qualifier in Open era

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-06-27/gauff_makes_history_as_youngest_qualifier_in_open_era.html

What did 15-year-old Cori Gauff do the night before her final Wimbledon Qualifying round? She took a science test remotely at 11pm for her school back in Florida. She is rather confident she’ll get a ‘B’ on it.

It wasn’t the only test she passed within the last 24 hours. On Thursday afternoon, Gauff made history by becoming the youngest player in the Open era to reach the main draw at Wimbledon via Qualifying.

She did it in style too, taking out 21-year-old Belgian Greet Minnen 6-1, 6-1 in 55 minutes to lock down a spot in the ladies' singles.

Gauff was busy online-shopping for dresses for a gala when she got the call eight days ago that she had received a wild card for Roehampton.

Keep any eye out for this young brother from Canada

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-06-30/2019-06-30_new_faces_in_gentlemens_singles.html

Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada)

As the youngest player to crack the top 25 since former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in 1999, Felix Auger-Aliassime is on a tear. A year ago, the Canadian was ranked outside the top 150 but a breakout 2019 has the 18-year-old poised to make a splash at SW19. Auger-Aliassime made his third tour final in Stuttgart leading in and went on to become the youngest semi-finalist at Queen’s in two decades, posting wins over the likes of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios and Grigor Dimitrov. Seeded No.19, he opens against compatriot Vasek Pospisil, a player he defeated at Indian Wells last year.

Teenager Gauff beats Williams in generation game

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-01/2019-07-01_williams_loses_generation_game_to_teenager.html

According to the advance billing, Venus Williams was set to face a 15-year-old schoolgirl in the first round at Wimbledon 2019, but on No.1 Court the anticipated gawky youngster was nowhere to be seen. Instead Cori Gauff was every inch an assured young woman from the moment she coolly strolled out on court ahead of the five-times Wimbledon champion, delivering a display of breathtaking poise against 39-year-old Williams to create an utterly sensational upset. The world No.313 nervelessly triumphed 6-4, 6-4 in 79 astounding minutes, breaking into tears in her moment of victory.

“This is the first time I ever cried after winning a match,” Gauff told the BBC as she left the court. “I never thought this would happen. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m literally living my dream. Not many people get to say that.

“I definitely had to tell myself to stay calm during the match. I never played on a court that’s so big. I had to remind myself that the lines are the same size as any other court. When we shook hand she told me congratulations and to keep going and good luck. I said ‘thank you for everything you’ve done’ – I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her.”

Yeah I like watching this young brother get after it. I've seen him play several times on The Tennis Channel in some clay court and hard court events.
