Coco Gauff Could Be Ready to Make Wimbledon 2024 Her Year


July 1, 2024

Coco Gauff has just started out on a road that could lead all the way to Wimbledon glory.

The women’s final on Saturday week is an occasion American tennis fans are advised not to miss on historic Centre Court.

It could involve the world number one against one of the world’s most popular player.

Coco Gauff against Iga Swiatek in the women’s final at Wimbledon 2024 would be a scintillating match-up.

Ordinarily you would fancy Swiatek to end that battle triumphant. But she is so far unsure of herself on grass.

In fact many regarded the biggest threat to Coco’s Wimbledon dream to be Aryna Sabalenka. But she just had to pull out of the tournament due to a shoulder injury.

There are former winners and dangerous players still in the mix of course. But you do have to wonder if this is going to be Coco’s year.

She showed delicious variety during her 6-1, 6-2 defeat of fellow American Caroline Dolehide.

Afterwards she said: ‘I’m really happy with how I played today, it’s always tough playing a friend. Last year I lost in the first round and that was very tough for me and I’m a little emotional.

‘Wimbledon is the place where I first believed the dream is possible. Every time I play here it’s the most nervous I ever feel. There’s something so special about playing on Centre Court.’

Earlier British superstar and former US Open winner Emma Raducanu had wowed the Centre Court crowd with a 7-6 (7-0) 6-3 win over Renata Zarazua of Mexico.

Emma will have to deal with drop shots better in the next round against Elise Mertens – and play them better too.

But she did finally achieve one incredible reach on the penultimate point to offer hope of greater forward mobility next time out.

Men’s champion Carlos Alcaraz had opened proceedings on Centre Court and been surprised by the level of his opponent Mark Lajal.

But the Spaniard came through 7-6 (7-3), 7-5, 6-2 and then waxed lyrical about the iconic Centre Court.

‘It’s the most beautiful court I have ever played on,’ he admitted. ‘I got goose bumps coming out here again.’

And although it’s early days, we have a feeling Coco will keep experiencing a similar sensation for the next fortnight.

Coco Gauff and Carlos Alcaraz both believe Centre Court at Wimbledon 2024 is the most special place on earth.
