Coco Gauff spent a few days in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, where she relaxed for a few days before resuming training and preparing for the final matches of the season. Through Instagram, Coco shared images that showed the American tennis player's love for both the autumn season and her hometown.
In one of the photos, Coco was in a vinyl CD store, as well as photos by a beautiful autumn lake, writing on the ground on a road and in the post: "I <3 autumn" In another photo, Gauff was at the Hapeville Dwarf House, and in the Instagram story she wrote: "First time here, this is my Disney world."
Coco Gauff comments on the defeat against Iga Swiatek in Beijing
Gauff was eliminated in the semi-final of Beijing by Iga Swiatek and, in the press conference, she explained: "I started to feel pain during the match with Maria Sakkari in the quarter-finals.
But I didn't feel the same pain as today. I warned in the first set, but I don't like calling the physiotherapist. My coach advised me to do it and that helped me. It was a new experience for me, I'm not used to playing with pain.
It's not a terrible injury, with a little rest things will settle down." The 19 year old from Atlanta can obviously be satisfied with her latest performances and, above all, with the incredible American summer. In fact, Gauff won the Washington tournament, the WTA 1000 in Cincinnati and her first Slam at the US Open.
Precisely thinking about Swiatek's season, criticized several times this year despite her excellent results, Gauff wanted to send an important message and defend the former number one on the WTA Tour. She said: "I saw several comments from people.
Some think it's not a good season for her. But she won a Slam at Roland Garros and was often number one. I would dream of a season like the one Swiatek had this year."
