Coco Gauff didn’t hide her disappointment at a fourth-round exit during the Australian Open, briskly walking from Margaret Court Arena and later tearing up in her postmatch news conference. But still just 18 years of age, the world No. 7 knows she can’t win every match, every day.
“After every loss, I pretty much learn something – and every win, too,” Gauff said upon falling in straight sets to Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.
“Today, I learned a lot. I’m a little bit frustrated, but I think I’ll rewatch and see where I went wrong.”
Earlier this week, Gauff revealed she is going to hold off on college classes for a while as she looks to maintain and improve on her top-10 ranking.
