Unlike the young Briton, who, according to fans and X users, is guided too much by her father.

During a press conference in Cancun, Coco explained: "From a sponsorship standpoint, we're getting some good money compared to the men.

At least in my position. I wouldn't say it's more so like a contract thing. Yes, there's still a gender gap, but I feel like now a lot of the brands want to get more women and want to be more diverse. Especially with me being a black woman.

People think it's a big gap, but I don't think so. At least in tennis when it comes to sponsorships and contracts and all of that. Obviously the prize money is something we can work on. Winning US Open, obviously if you win a Grand Slam you get more brands reaching out to you.

These commitments take a lot. People think we just post a photo on the internet with that brand. People don't realize it's like an 8 hour or 10 hour day. Lots of times you have commitments or have to do an event. For me it's just been about trying to still capitalize on the moment, but also protecting my peace & my mental health & still playing the game I love.

I think my team has done a great job helping me with that." At these words, the fans underlined the difference in wisdom between Gauff and Raducanu. Here are the most significant comments shared by fans on X:
