Coco Gauff reveals winning the WTA Finals is now one of her dreams after experiencing the tournament in back-to-back years. Gauff, 19, made her second WTA Finals appearance this year in Cancun. In Cancun, Gauff reached the semifinal before Jessica Pegula handed her a 6-2 6-1 loss.

Last year, Gauff went 0-3 in her WTA Finals debut in Fort Worth. This year, Gauff accomplished her childhood dream of winning a Grand Slam. In the future, Gauff wants to win more Grand Slams, reach the world No 1 ranking, and also become a WTA Finals champion. “It would be cool to win it.

To be honest, as a kid, I always dreamt of winning Grand Slams. I think as I’ve grown as a pro on tour, I learned more about what the WTA Finals is about. I’d definitely say that would be a goal of mine now, after competing in it for two years and realizing this is the best of the best.

I do think I can improve. It would definitely be a dream. If I had to choose, I’d rather win another Slam. But it’s definitely a dream. I think this tournament is one of the most challenging. Not only because it’s the Top 8, but because it’s the end of the season," Gauff said, via The Tennis Letter.

Gauff enjoyed an outstanding part of the 2023 season

After suffering a first-round loss at Wimbledon, Gauff was evidently crushed and in low spirits.

Gauff then made some changes, hiring Andre Agassi's ex-coach Brad Gilbert. At the start of the North American hard court swing, Gauff won a WTA 500 event in Washington. Gauff then also became a WTA 1000 champion in Cincinnati before landing her first Grand Slam title at the US Open.

After the US Open, Gauff only competed at a WTA 1000 tournament in Beijing and the WTA Finals. In both tournaments, Gauff was a semifinalist. Gauff will now take some time to rest before she kicks off her preparation for the 2024 season.
