Coco Gauff reveals what happened after the US Open
In a recent interview Coco talked about what happened after the victory and how she decided to take a few days off for the success.
She said: "Honestly it was all a bit strange, we talk about one of the most important things in your life, then you come home and do the cleaning or household chores as if nothing had happened."
Coco has been aiming to win a Slam for two years now, already last year she suffered the shame of a defeat by falling in the final against Iga Swiatek and now she has realized how she faced the greatest success of her career.
"I decided to take a week off from tennis, the longest since I've been playing this sport. It was strange to be left with nothing to do, then I had a small party with family and friends I hadn't seen for a while. But to say the truth is I couldn't wait to leave again, a week without playing is a really long time for me," said the young North American tennis star.
Coco will now be one of the eight great protagonists who will compete in Cancun to win the 2023 WTA Finals title.
