Coco Gauff lost at the Australian Open, but her career is a win

Coco Gauff lost at the Australian Open, but her career is a win

Coco Gauff is a generational talent, but even she has to remember to give herself grace.

After a gritty win against Aryna Sabalenka in the 2023 U.S. Open final that ended with Sabalenka beating her tennis racket into the floor, Coco Gauff has been on a meteoric rise. Her talents landed her at the Australian Open, where she played in the semifinals against Sabalenka again.

This time, however, she didnโ€™t have enough to overcome her familiar opponent. Gauff seemingly ran out of gas after a valiant but stressful win over Marta Kostyuk just days ago. When she took time to reflect upon her loss, she was particularly hard on herself.

Yet, her career, which includes a Grand Slam, seven singles titles and eight doubles titles โ€” all before reaching her 20s โ€” shows she has to be gentle with herself. Coco is more than just a moment. Sheโ€™s given tennis fans and herself quite the journey, and there is more still to come.
