The rising tennis star Coco Gauff will now face the winner of Sofia Kenin vs Zhang Shuai in the fourth round of Aussie Open.
Gauff beat Williams 7-6 (5), 6-3 on Monday. “I was a bit shocked. I’m sure everyone was a bit shocked,” said Gauff.
At the Auckland Classic, Williams won her first title since the 2017 Australian Open, breaking a three-year drought.
“I just remember it was windy and being angry, hating my now-husband Alexis Ohanian. I was like ‘I can’t stand you and I don’t know why,” recalled Williams.
She became the oldest No. 1 in WTA history and equalled Steffi Graf’s record for most consecutive weeks atop the rankings. She became the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam singles trophy in the professional era. However, now Williams is itching to equal Margaret Court’s record 24 Grand Slam titles.
