15-year-old American Cori “Coco” Gauff has confirmed, she will make her first appearance of the 2020 season at the ASB Classic.
Coco captured the headlines in June by firstly becoming the youngest to ever qualify for the main draw at Wimbledon, then by beating tennis legend and her idol Venus Williams in the first round. The youngster continued her winning ways and made it to the second week of the grand slam confirming herself as the ‘future of American tennis’.
The Atlanta native is looking forward to her first visit to New Zealand.
“I can’t wait to start my season in Auckland. 2019 was such an incredible year and I achieved so many of the goals that I had set for myself. Wimbledon was obviously a highlight as was capturing my first WTA title. However I have a number of goals and things that I am working on in my game, and I can’t wait to start my 2020 year at the ASB Classic” said Gauff.
The ASB Classic will span for two weeks; the Women’s tournament kicking off from 6-12 January followed by the Men’s tournament from January 13-18 2020.
