Coco Gauff in Wimbledon: She reached the fourth round of the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament on July 3 after winning over Kaja Juvan.

The 17-year-old American tennis player is back into the second week of Wimbledon by reaching the fourth round on Centre Court. She finished with 21 winners and broke her opponent five times.

While Gauff stormed through the opening of the games energetically at the Centre Court, she was asked some awkward questions by 102nd ranked Juvan. Gauff had answers to all, leading to her entry in the second week.

On July 5, Gauff will face the former Wimbledon champion, Angelique Kerber.

Back in the year 2019, when Gauff made it into the fourth round at the age of 15, she made headlines. This time it is less of a surprise and she holds a serious title already.

After winning the opening set, the world No. 23 ranked singles player established a lead in the second, and despite Slovenia’s Juvan fought tenaciously, she could not knock Gauff out of her stride.

Fourth Round Of Wimbledon

Meanwhile, 18-year-old tennis player Emma Raducanu became the youngest British woman to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon in the Open era.

Raducanu converted her third match point to beat veteran Sorana Cirstea 6-3, 7-5 on No. 1 Court. She will be playing her first Grand Slam tournament.

In 1979, Deborah Jevans, aged 19, became the previous youngest British woman to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon.

All-Indian Wimbledon Match

Meanwhile, Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna made history on July 2 by winning the all-Indian Wimbledon match, which marked the first time the two teams of Indian players going head to head in the Grand Slam tournament.
