15-year-old Wimbledon sensation Coco Gauff captures first WTA title in Washington
The duo were wildcard entrants to the competition, but had more than enough to deal with fourth-seeds Maria Sanchezand Fanny Stollar in the final, with both proving the tennis betting odds were correct on this occasion.
“I thought this week was super good, like we didn’t even know we were playing together,” Gauff said after the 6-2, 6-2 win.
“Before the tournament we were lucky enough to get a wild card, and I’m glad that we were able to get that and we were able to take advantage of this opportunity.
“I think for me, and I think for both of us, it means a lot.
“Obviously we want to do well in singles, but I think we just love competing in general, so whether it’s singles or doubles, we want to win no matter what.

“So I think that we really get as nervous as we do in doubles as we do in singles because we just want to make the other one proud.”
McNally was full of praise for Gauff, but admitted the partnership nearly didn’t happen.
“My favourite thing about Coco is honestly she’s just so laid back, so silly, I think, and super easy to get along with.”
“I mean, it was pretty much a last-minute thing to play together.
“I was actually thinking about playing with someone else, and then once I knew that Coco was in, I decided to play with her.
“I just know that we’re such a good doubles team, and we just have chemistry.”
