Coco Gauff was honored by the United States Senate, with Congress congratulating her on winning her first Grand Slam title at the US Open in New York. Thanks to her triumph in the North American Slam, the Senators introduced a bipartisan resolution in the US Congress.

Here's what they said in the text certified by the United States Senators: "Congratulating Coco Gauff for her inspiring victory at this year’s US Open Tennis Championships. Whereas, on September 9, 2023, Gauff won her first Grand Slam title at the US Open; Whereas, on March 13, 2004, Gauff was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and grew up in Delray Beach, Florida, where she still lives today.

Whereas Gauff is an inspiration to millions of young girls and boys across the country with her passion for the sport, faith and victories: Now, therefore, be it. Resolved, That the Senate congratulates Gauff for her inspiring victory at this year’s US Open Tennis Championships." Senators Jon Ossoff, Marco Rubio, Rick Scott, and Raphael Warnock certified the text congratulating Coco Gauff's triumph in New York.

Iga Swiatek defeated Coco Gauff at the WTA Finals round robin

Iga Swiatek defeated Coco Gauff in the second day matches of the WTA Finals round robin.

In Cancun, the world number 2 defeated the winner of the US Open with a result of 6-0, 7-5, giving her young rival a bagel in the first set. Swiatek faces Gauff who certainly seemed disconnected in the first half hour of play.

In the second set there is certainly more of a game. In fact, she is the American who takes the first break lead. At 1-1, Swiatek finds herself at 15-40 and forced to save two break points. She manages to make up for it with a forehand slap on the first occasion, but on the second she is forced to give up serve.

After saving two break points in the sixth game, which lasted almost as long as the first set, it seems that everything is directed towards Gauff, who made up for a very foul match on her part, especially with the serve. At the end of the set, however, Swiatek seems unbeatable.

She recovers the break, then loses the parity gained with another break. In the end, she needs three games in a row and a partial of nine points compared to the two won by the American. Thus, the Roland Garros title holder obtains the leadership of the group.
