Roger Federer should ‘keep winning till the end’ at Wimbledon, according to Coco Gauff.
Today at Wimbledon, both Coco Gauff and Roger Federer are in the fourth round.
Coco Gauff has stated that she enjoys serving as Roger Federer’s curtain-raiser on Centre Court at Wimbledon and hopes to continue doing so throughout the final. Gauff made his debut at Wimbledon two years ago, when he was only 15 years old.
She is still the youngest player in the women’s draw at Wimbledon, but she has a lot more experience on the international stage this time.
She’s already advanced to the quarterfinals of the French Open, and she’ll be a strong contender at Wimbledon next week.
After Novak Djokovic’s match against Cristian Garin, the American teenager returns to Centre Court for ‘Manic Monday,’ taking the second position.
Gauff is also in familiar ground, since her match against Angelique Kerber is the third in a row that she has played straight before Federer.
On Monday, the 20-time Grand Slam champion will meet Italian Lorenzo Sonego on Centre Court.
Gauff confesses she has the utmost respect for Federer and admits she was “nervous” when she found out he was following her on court in the second round.
Those nerves are gone, but Gauff hopes the trend continues later in the week, when both players are in contenders for the Grand Slam.
“I was nervous in my second-round match on Centre because I noticed he was watching me again,” she explained.
“I wasn’t nervous going in today [Saturday].” On my second round, I’m not sure why I felt so frightened. Yes, I am aware of the situation.
“It’s a lot of fun. I’m not sure, but I prefer to think of it as a door opening for me.
“You know how concerts go: a big artist performs first, followed by a smaller performer. That’s how I prefer to think of it. It’s a lot of fun.
“Roger, absolutely, he has a major influence on my thinking on and off the court,” says the player. He’s always someone I can go to for advice if I need it.
“I mean, he’s such a gentleman and someone who I admired. It’s wonderful that I’m able to open up for him, if that’s the correct terminology.
“Hopefully, if I can continue to open up for him, we can continue to win.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
