American teenager Gauff reaches maiden WTA final in Linz

Asked by hiretoverhiretover on 2019-10-12

REUTERS: American teenage sensation Coco Gauff progressed to her maiden WTA final as she eased past Germany's Andrea Petkovic 6-4 6-4 at the Linz Open on Saturday.

The 15-year-old Gauff became the youngest player to reach a WTA final since Czech Republic's Nicole Vaidisova won the Tashkent Open in 2004, also aged 15.

Gauff only made it to the main draw of the event as a lucky loser but has made her opportunity count with a barnstorming run to Sunday's final, where she will meet former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

The American faced 10 break points but recovered well to fend off nine of them against Petkovic in the semi-final, before sealing victory on her second match point.

"This is crazy," Gauff said. "I thought I was out in qualifying and now I'm here. "Linz is my special place.

"This was one of the highest-level matches I've played. Andrea hit a lot of winners and put pressure on me.
