Few players have impressed quite as much as Coco Gauff at Wimbledon.

Five years on from her breakthrough at the All England Club as a 15-year-old, the American is back at the tournament as the second seed and a reigning Grand Slam champion.

Gauff, victorious at the US Open last summer, looks like a strong title contender this fortnight.

The world No 2 started her campaign with a convincing victory over compatriot Caroline Dolehide on Monday and again impressed as she dispatched Romanian qualifier Anca Todoni in round two on Wednesday.

Gauff has never made it past round four at Wimbledon but looks primed to do so this year, with her draw opening up nicely and her Grand Slam form among the very best in the women’s game.

And she has already hit an impressive milestone at SW19, with victories over Dolehide and Todoni her 50th and 51st at Grand Slam level this decade – becoming just the fourth woman to hit that number of wins.

The company she has emulated is certainly impressive.

1) Iga Swiatek – 73

There were no prizes for guessing who sat at No 1 on this list, with Swiatek conclusively the leading player of this decade.

The Pole memorably claimed her first Grand Slam title at the French Open in 2020, and has won five majors in total across the 2020s – three clear of any other WTA player.

Alongside her four French Open titles and her 2022 US Open win, the Pole has reached the last four of the Australian Open and a Wimbledon quarter-final.

Swiatek hasn’t lost before the third round of a Slam this decade, and victory over Sofia Kenin in round one of Wimbledon on Tuesday was a 73rd major win since 2020.

2) Aryna Sabalenka – 62

One of just four women to have won multiple major titles in the 2020s, Sabalenka has become one of the most consistent Grand Slam performers in the women’s game.

The Belarusian’s most notable successes are her back-to-back triumphs at the Australian Open, winning the title in 2023 and 2024.

However, she has also reached two Wimbledon semi-finals and a French Open semi-final in recent years, alongside a US Open final – and two further semi-finals at Flushing Meadows.

Sabalenka’s impressive streak of six straight Grand Slam semi-finals was snapped at Roland Garros last month, and she unfortunately had to withdraw from SW19 with a shoulder injury.

3) Ons Jabeur – 52

Just ahead of Gauff is Tunisian trailblazer Jabeur, who will again look to go deep at the All England Club.

Jabeur’s most famous successes have come at Wimbledon, reaching the final in the past two years, and also reaching the last eight back in 2021.

However, she also reached the US Open final in 2022 – and has had consistent success at all four of the majors.

She reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final at the Australian Open in 2020 and reached consecutive French Open quarter-finals in 2023 and 2024.

Having impressed in her opening Wimbledon match on Tuesday, the 10th seed looks primed to extend her number of wins this tournament.

4) Coco Gauff – 51

The youngest of the four women to hit this milestone, who knows how many wins Gauff will be able to hit at Grand Slams over the next few years?

Her most famous moment so far is her US Open triumph last summer, where she beat Sabalenka to claim her maiden major title.

But that was not the first time she had gone deep at a Slam, having reached the French Open final in 2022, before losing to Swiatek.

The American reached the last four of the Australian Open and Roland Garros earlier this year, and looks a safe bet to go deep at SW19.
