In an interview to TIME, the 15-year-old American player Cori Gauff commented on her magical Wimbledon run that ended up reaching the fourth round losing to Simona Halep. Gauff said: "Some people were probably saying this was one time, this was the match of her life.
I learned that I’m capable of a lot of things. I learned to fight. I want to go to prom and all of that, but I definitely can make time to have that." "When you’re young, you just believe anything. When I got older, I really believed it for an actual reason, instead of just believing ’cause my dad told me.
A lot of people maybe think of it as cocky. But I think it’s just confidence. I think I can beat anyone on the court”. She wants to become the greatest ever and break Serena Williams's 23 Grand Slam titles record: "I know I can do it."
Making his US Open predictions, Andy Roddick added: “The two clear favorites are Novak and Rafa. Roger is low on match-practice. And that loss was tough at Wimbledon. He’s going to need the crowd and be lifted. Fortunately, I’ve never seen a guy more beloved than Roger.
He’s going to be searching for form because he doesn’t have a lot of matches. If he can get through the first week clean, he’ll have a shot”.
