Coco Gauff, the 15-year-old prodigy who amazed the whole world when she kicked out Venus Williams at the 2019 Wimbledon, was spotted training with her family ahead of Thanksgiving in New Orleans by WGNO News’ Bill Wood.
While being interviewed, the American tennis player recalled the life-changing 6/4, 6/4 victory over Venus Williams in the first round of Wimbledon. “I was really nervous and shocked. I still can’t wrap my head around it” said Coco.
Gauff never seems to lose sight of her goal and that’s becoming the greatest of all time. As proof, even when Thanksgiving is knocking on her door, she is still on the tennis court of the Tulane University hitting and grinding.
However, she still respects the tradition and spends time with her family. Her dad and her two brothers, 12-year-old Cody and 6-year-old Cam, are training alongside. Gauff is still very young, but she has the kind of ambition that very few youngsters possess nowadays and that might just propel her into bigger achievements in 2020.
Meanwhile, the 15-year-old hopes to get a car. At the end of the interview, Gauff confessed that her favorite food and beverage are steak and smoothies, her favorite color is purple and the best advice from her dad was that “You’re able to do anything”.
Also, she mentioned what she likes to do when she’s not on the tennis court. “I like reading and playing with my little brothers”, Gauff concluded after she amazed the reporter with her 122mph serve.
