Even Roger Federer loses matches, says Cori Gauff

In an interview with AP, Cori Gauff commented on her amazing Wimbledon run. The American player lost to Simona Halep in the fourth round. “Obviously, there’s always room for improvement. I’m going to go and practice and improve some things, so that next time, I can win the tournament", confessed Gauff.

“The most important point for me is just the match point after beating Venus. That was a moment that I will never forget. Watching the video, it seemed like it all happened quickly. But during it, I felt like I was on the court for like 20 minutes, when I dropped the racket and everything", she said.

Gauff took her loss to Halep with a good philosophy: “Maybe a year ago, when I lost, I kind of felt sorry for myself. And now I don’t feel sorry for myself. I just feel like: If you lose, that means you can always improve,” Gauff said.

“I mean, I’m never going to be perfect, because you’re always going to lose matches. It’s impossible to win all of them. Even the more you lose, the more you need to improve, I guess. And even Roger Federer, even though he’s one of the greatest of all time, he still loses matches. So that means he still can improve”.
