Coco Gauff enjoyed a stunning North American hard-court season with her crowning moment coming at the US Open when she won her first Grand Slam title. But when will the teenager be in action again?

The American had been set for stardom since she made her breakthrough at the age of 15 when she became the youngest player to qualify for the main draw at Wimbledon in 2019. Later in the year she became the youngest WTA Tour title winner in 15 years when she won the Linz Open aged 15 years and seven months.

Many predicted that Grand Slams would follow in the next few years and they were not wrong, although the youngster bode her time as four years after that historic Wimbledon run she won her maiden major with many now saying it is the first of many.

Besides her US Open title, Gauff has enjoyed a remarkable latter half of the 2023 season as she also Citi DC Open and Cinncinati Open but the season is not done yet and she will be in action again in a few weeks.

The 19-year-old was initially scheduled to play in this week’s San Diego Open but confirmed in the aftermath of her title celebrations that she will take time out from the game.



When is Coco Gauff’s next tournament?

Gauff was also set to take part in the second edition of the Guadalajara Open, which starts on September 18, but the American will skip the WTA 1000 tournament as she will take an extended break.

The WTA Tour is then set for a full Asian swing for the first time since 2019 and Gauff is next expected to take part in the China Open, which runs from October 2-8 in Beijing.

It is a mandatory WTA 1000 tournament and the youngster will make her debut at the event as she didn’t feature in 2019.

WTA Finals

Gauff has already secured her place in the season-ending WTA Finals, which will be staged in Cancún, Mexico, from October 29 to November 5.

She qualified for the tournament for the first time last year, but it was an event to forget as she lost all her round-robin matches, going down against Iga Swiatek, Caroline Garcia and Daria Kasatkina.

Although it is not official, Gauff is also expected to be part of the United States’ Billie Jean King Cup squad for the finals that will be played Seville, Spain, from November 7-12.

Gauff represented her country at the qualifying rounds earlier this year, but there is some dispute over the timing of the WTA Finals and the Billie Jean King Cup fixtures as a player who reaches the final in Cancun will then have to travel straight to Spain to compete in the team event.
