Coco Gauff’s magical run comes to an end at Wimbledon

Coco Gauff’s magical run comes to an end at Wimbledon

Gauff hit three forehand errors in the first game of the match to be broken immediately, yet broke back and held lead 2-1.

Hard-hitting talk indeed, but a look at her.

Gauff wrote another page of her incredible fairy-tale on Friday, when she saved two match points against Slovenia's Polona Hercog before rallying to win the match 3-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-5.

The 29-year-old Czech, who lost over a year of her career after being stabbed, has looked in good shape and will play Britain's Johanna Konta in what is her first appearance in the last 16 for the first time since 2014 when she won the second of her titles.

As a result, Gauff's breakout run ended in the fourth round. She is the youngest player to make it to Week 2 at Wimbledon since Jennifer Capriati in 1991 and has beaten the likes of seven-time major champion Venus Williams.

"Then you have a 15-year-old like Coco who knows what to do".

The bank also announced that Chief Regulatory Officer Sylvie Matherat and retail head Frank Strauß will be leaving the company. Deutsche Bank management intends to fund its transformation from its existing resources without requiring additional capital.

Later on "Manic Monday", Williams, 15-year-old sensation Coco Gauff and the men's Big Three of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are on the schedule as Wimbledon resumes after its traditional day off. She came back from her first set and first service game loss to Halep by breaking her serve. However, action on Centre Court and Court One doesn't begin until 1 p.m. local time (8 a.m. ET), with Serena Williams kicking off proceedings on the latter.

Riske will meet Serena Williams in the last-eight after the seven-time victor dispatched Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2.

Also, Zhang Shuai beat Dayana Yastremska 6-4, 1-6, 6-2.

Barty was playing her first tournament as the No. 1-ranked player, and she started off by winning points with her serve against Riske.

Her father Corey, a former basketball player, had booked a week's stay at their Wimbledon hotel for the qualifying tournament at Roehampton. "I want to win every match I play - I try to be a better person on and out of court".

Gauff showed not a flicker of emotion as Halep eventually served out the set, not even stopping to greet the autograph hunters as she walked to the changing rooms. Number six seed and 2014 victor Petra Kvitova takes on Britain's Johanna Konta on Centre Court, while Barbora Strycova faces number 21 seed Elise Mertens.
