Lindsay Davenport backs 15-year-old Cori Gauff to win Grand Slams

Before Cori was even born, Williams had already won two of her Wimbledon titles.

The 15-year-old Gauff showed poise and power in a 6-4, 6-4 stunner against seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams.

"It was awesome. It just helps me think that you can come from anywhere and play against anybody and still have the power to win", Mykyaia Bryd said. I'm literally living my dream right now.

Gauff, who said Roger Federer had been a big help to re-energising her and could claim some credit for her winning the French Open junior title past year, said she had finally been able to muster the courage to address one of the Williams sisters after twice failing to prior to that.

"Many people have been like 'do you like your draw?' - I love my draw", she continued.

After taking down Venus in straight sets, Gauff got to speak to one of her idols for the first time.

Gauff, playing in her first Grand Slam match, converted her fourth match point when Williams sent a forehand into the net then broke into sobs before shaking hands with her opponent.

There, the Duchess-who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Crocquet Club- sat next to Wimbledon Chairman Philip Brook. Adding fuel to rumours of a rift between the two Duchesses, Catherine was the only royal to appear at the tennis yesterday.

Gauff said she was determined to make the most of her opportunities.

"But at the same time, you're looking at a person (in Venus Williams) who paved the way for young black girls, or young girls in general, to play the sport". "She has been raised for greatness and this is just the beginning", said former WTA player and world No. 1 Tracy Austin.

However, she did have a slight wobble at the end when she let slip three match points. Her father, Corey Gauff, is her head coach, but she has trained with a number of huge industry names.

After her momentous win, Gauff revealed she had thanked Williams for being an inspiration to her. He cited Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as examples to suggest that lack of consistency can not be blamed on other factors, let alone its effects on player's action outside the court.

After Stephens ended a run of two consecutive first-round defeats she added her endorsement of Gauff.

Recently, she announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement with the pasta brand, Barilla, which also sponsors another tennis great, Roger Federer. She has lost to Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys and Naomi Osaka in recent years.

In an illustration of her tender years, Gauff is combining her All England Club campaign while completing her high school studies. This success, however, is just the latest of many for Gauff, who in 2017 was a US Open Junior Finalist, before become the 2018 Roland Garros Junior Champion.
