US Open 2023: Coco Gauff becomes third American teenager to win tournament

There is a new face of American women’s tennis – and she’s just 19 years old.

Coco Gauff won the Women’s U.S. Open on Saturday, defeating Aryna Sabalenka, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.

The win marks Gauff’s first-ever grand slam title in just her second final.

Gauff’s previous best finish in Queens was in the quarterfinals last year – she lost the 2022 French Open to Iga Swiatek.

Despite the loss, Sabalenka will be officially named the world’s No. 1-ranked women’s player after Swiatek lost in the Round of 16.

But that is certainly a title Gauff can take sooner rather than later.
