Halep ends 15-year-old Gauff's magical Wimbledon run

By CHRIS LEHOURITES

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Coco Gauff's unexpected but remarkable run at Wimbledon is over.
The 15-year-old American, who became the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon's main draw in the professional era, lost to former No. 1 Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round on Monday.

"I learned a lot," said Gauff, who is younger than many of the players in the junior competition at Wimbledon. "I learned how to play in front of a big crowd. I learned what it was like to be under pressure. I learned a lot and I'm really thankful for this experience."

She had a nice run, 15 years old into the second week!   She has lots to learn and she should be back!

Top seed Barty bows out

Australian world No.1 finds American Riske too hot to handle   :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-08/top_seed_barty_bows_out.html

Down the 'T' they all went: a first, a second, a third and then a fourth ace from Ashleigh Barty in her opening service game. But, with lawn tennis, as with almost everything else in life, it's not how you start but how you finish that matters. That game of aces brought the world No.1 little lasting pleasure - in fact, probably none at all - on the day she lost in the fourth round to an unseeded American, Alison Riske.

In reaching her first Grand Slam quarter-final, Riske ended Barty's 15-match, cross-Channel winning streak, which had brought her titles at Roland-Garros and the Edgbaston Priory Club. Riske also cut down the streak within the streak, of nine consecutive matches won in straight sets.

I agree Olde Hornet, and I also thought it was a stupid statement.

Truth hurts. Happens to a lot of players.. Especially Sharapova who had particularly bad menstruations as a teen.

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
