15-year-old Coco Gauff continues Wimbledon fairytale with another fine win
Teenage sensation Coco Gauff continued her amazing Wimbledon run by beating Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round.
The 15-year-old, who beat Venus Williams in her opening match, appeared to enjoy herself under Court One’s new roof, eventually easing to a 6-3, 6-3 win.
“I think I played well, especially on the pressure points,” she said after the match.
“She was serving amazing so it was hard to return sometimes.
“There’s so much going on. I’m still shocked that I’m even here.
“I think I can beat anyone who’s across the court. If I don’t think I can win the match then I won’t even step on the court.”
Simona Halep is also though, and she will face a mouthwatering clash against Victoria Azarenka in the next round.
Halep had a scare against fellow Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu before sealing a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 win.
Azarenka, meanwhile, had a much easier time of it against Ajla Tomljanovic, winning 6-2 6-0.
There were no problems for Eastbourne champion and third seed Karolina Pliskova either, who dominated Monica Puig 6-0, 6-4.
Elina Svitolina is probably counting herself a little fortunate after Margarita Gasparyan, who won the first set, was forced to retire from their match with injury.
