Coco Gauff says she prefers if climate protest didn’t happen during her match

Coco Gauff said she was not upset at the protesters who disrupted her US Open semifinals match against Karolina Muchova Thursday night, but she just preferred the demonstration did not happen in her match.

Gauff was asked about the protest that occurred in the second set against Muchova. The United States Tennis Association said four people were removed from the stadium by NYPD officers, including one who had glued their shoes to the ground at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The delay took nearly an hour.

The 19-year-old tennis phenom won the match in straight sets to become the youngest American to advance to the title match since Serena Williams. She was asked in the post-match press conference.

The group said the Biden administration’s actions to combat climate change were not enough and demanded that “the government tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, and halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.”
