What You Should Know About Tennis Phenom Cori 'Coco' Gauff

She lit up Wimbledon and transcended tennis in a sparkling debut on the world stage.

15-year-old Cori "Coco" Gauff has quickly taken over 2019 Wimbledon Championships headlines. While Gauff seemingly burst out of nowhere, she says she's wanted to be the greatest of all time since she turned 12. In the opening round of Wimbledon, the Atlanta native defeated five-time champion Venus Williams. The daughter of two college athletes was hand-picked by Serena Williams' coach to train in Nice, France in 2015, when she was just 11. Having already won $139,000 at Wimbledon so far, Gauff is on track to become a millionaire by the end of the year. She watches makeup tutorials before matches, and is a fan of the singer and son of Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith, Jaden Smith!
