Gauff Defeats Muchova For Biggest Title Of Her Career In Cincinnati

Date:

Coco Gauff captured the biggest title of her career on Sunday, powering past Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-4 to win the WTA Cincinnati Open. The 19-year-old American rushed to her box to hug her team members after securing victory at the 1000-level event over French Open runner-up Muchova in just under two hours. Gauff was broken while serving for the straight-sets win, but two games later threw her hands up in joy after converting on her fourth match point.

“This is unbelievable,” said Gauff, who became the first teenager to win five career titles since Caroline Wozniacki in 2008-09. “Especially after Europe, I had a lot of nights crying and trying to figure it all out but this is great.” She added

Since losing in the opening round at Wimbledon, Gauff has won 11 of her last 12 matches with her only defeat coming against Jessica Pegula last week in the Montreal quarterfinals. Despite that hiccup she’ll go into the US Open starting in eight days on a high. She has now won five of her six career finals, including her first 500-level event at Washington two weeks ago and her first 1000-level title in Cincy, where she beat world No 1 Iga Swiatek in the semifinals
