Junior US Open champion Robin Montgomery discusses her performance against Cori Gauff in 2021.

Robin Montgomery, a rising tennis player in the United States, thinks she just needs to keep playing fearlessly since she was pleased with the performance she gave against Cori Gauff. The 2021 US Open girls’ singles champion Montgomery advanced past the San Diego Open qualifying round to secure a spot in the main draw of the American WTA 500 competition.

Gauff defeated Montgomery 6-3, 6-3 in a contest between two exceptionally skilled American teenagers. “I think the best way for me to play my game is to play without fear. I just have to get out there and swing with my game. Can’t allow them to have control over the points.

Naturally, it didn’t work out for me. Coco moves really quickly. According to Tennis Majors, Montgomery commented, “I’m proud with how I did.

Montgomery on the athletes she admired

Left-handed player Montgomery is not afraid to take risks with her shots.

Montgomery admired the Williams sisters and Petra Kvitova as a little girl. “I particularly enjoy watching Kvitova since she is a lefty, and I really admire how she conducts herself on the court. Obviously, Venus and Serena. The men’s players I enjoy watching are Carlos and Frances, according to Montgomery.

In the first round of the San Diego tournament, Gauff broke twice in response to Montgomery’s opening break of the match to take the first set and the match 3-2. Gauff defeated Montgomery in the second set by breaking him twice, capping a two-set victory.

Montgomery, who is currently No. 294 in the world, is expected to move up to No. 255 by next Monday. It was a wonderful experience. After her San Diego debut, Montgomery stated, “I’m really happy they gave me the chance to come through qualifying and it was really amazing playing at this level.
