According to tennis.com, Cori Gauff, 18, has achieved 100 WTA victories, making her the youngest player to do it since Caroline Wozniacki in 2009. Gauff advanced to the third round of the Australian Open by defeating Emma Raducanu, who was seeded seventh, 6-3, 7-6 (4). Gauff currently has a perfect 7-0 record in 2023 after taking the title in Auckland in her first tournament of the year.

Gauff earned her 100th victory on the main level after defeating Raducanu. Wozniacki was 18 years old when she achieved her 100th victory in 2009. Furthermore, Wozniacki had just turned 18 years old when she surpassed the 100-win threshold.

Gauff responds to her accomplishment

Gauff tweeted, “This is crazy,” as soon as she realized she had reached the milestone.

Gauff observed that although playing Raducanu in a Grand Slam second round wasn’t ideal, she simply had to be ready for everything when it came to Grand Slams.

“At a Grand Slam, you must win seven games, and you must enter the competition expecting to perform at your peak. Of course, you hope that it doesn’t go to the next round, but what can you do? I believe that we managed the pressure fairly well, and congratulations to Emma. I know that she had a difficult week in Auckland, so it is really commendable that she was able to play at this level following such a tense situation “After the game, Gauff gave an explanation.

Before Raducanu forced her way back into the match, Gauff had a set and a break advantage. Gauff won four straight games in the tie-break for the second set to take a 6-2 lead. Gauff lost her first two match points but won the match with a two-set victory after converting on her third match point.

“I simply urged myself to persevere. Near the end of the game, Emma was playing some excellent tennis. Sincerably, the entire game was fantastic. Although I believe both of us got off to a difficult start, I believe the match was generally of high caliber.

Given the circumstances, I suppose we were both anxious because this matchup had been anticipated pretty much since the draw was announced. I’m therefore pleased that you two were a good fit “said Gauff.
