Coco Gauff wins first WTA title

She's still 15?

This girl will dominate, if she stays committed to improving and working - as opposed to posting idiotic selfies for Instagram and other BS.

Her parents seem awfully nice and grounded, and that can only help her career.

Winning the first title as LL at age 15, such a ATG omen for her. Does anyone doubt she will win many slams/Tier Is?

Like the guys getting rid of their gold chains?
If it doesn’t get in the way of her play - who cares?
Yeah, dozens of ATP pros with their huge golden bling... It's an epidemic of bling, especially the Big 3.

Of course it gets in the way. And it's ugly as sin. And unhygienic.

No slams yet. I.e. she can do even better.

Natural normal nails will help.

Unless there is a new theory (probably devised by Beyonce) that fake long nails improve shot-making skills...
That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard! If she can win with long nails then it doesn't matter what type of tournament she plays. How many slams has Serena won with long nails? Next you will say she can't win a slam with braids.

She can't win a slam with braids.

You are Nostradamus.

She might be as good as Nicole Vaidisova

She’ll have 3 chances to be the youngest Slam winner. Will she beat Hingis?

Vaidisova?

Now that's a name I haven't heard in a very long time. Good player ruined by Stepanek?

If there ever was a time for a free-for-all, when every good WTA player had a shot at a slam, it's this era. She might do it.

Coconuts I mean. Not the nutty Stepanek groupie...

Vaidisova was the last 15 year old to win a title

He was engaged to Hingis, dated Kvitova and married Vaidisova twice... I mean, I won't make any personal comments but he must've had a way with... words?
Married twice? WTF... and I don't mean the Masters Cup.

Stepanek, they all said, is "very funny guy".

Yeah right, that's why they dated him... Liars.

Coco Gauff is exposing the "parity" in the WTA as another way of stating that the tour is currently weak with the Williams sisters in decline and nobody else stepping it up. If a 15 year old girl is dominating 20-25 year old women then those women aren't very good. They shouldn't have experienced physical decline yet and they should be much more experienced and smarter in their play.

Yeah, constant moonballing for 1,5 hours is a new way of domination in women's tennis. Although you've forgotten that she lost qualification, and Naomi + Bianca won't go anywhere anytime soon.

Maybe he has a big handle on his mystery stick, or he knows how to use his balls and her gut -strings.
Anyway good for young Gauff and her fans. However they forget that at end of season the women are tired except the Williamses who play few tournaments anyway.
Furthermore looks very much physically grown up for a 15 year old. I dont find her playing style very exciting. She only waits for her opponent to make mistakes. She hits a lot of dropshots too, which becomes very predictally. So i dont care if she wins or loses, but i m no American too.
