Some people consider the young American star Coco Gauff, who is now ranked number six in the globe, to be one of the WTA Tour’s potential future leaders. Few areas need improvement that the American has so far demonstrated in her very brief career.

One of these, which she said she needs to work on, is controlling her emotions and remaining composed on the court. Coco clarified: “Well, there’s no doubt that I still have a lot to learn. I’m not yet flawless. I occasionally become overly agitated.

Yet I believe she is making progress in this area. We can’t possibly be more composed than that, in my opinion, at least after the last two games. It is quite challenging to enter the court without retaliating. Except for Roger Federer, it is not feasible.”

Gauff on Aryna Sabalenka and Iga Swiatek

Swiatek and Sabalenka serve as inspiration for Gauff “I do get mad now and again.

It’s just a part of who I am. I believe that what matters is not always the reaction, but rather how soon you can move past it.” Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka are two tennis players who the class of 2004 looks up to as role models.

Even though he is only 21 years old, the first, genuine ATP ranking and season leader can already claim three Grand Slams. The second got off to a strong start in the season by winning the Australian Open, the first Major in her professional career.

Added her: “I recall that Iga had a poor record prior to winning the Roland Garros. Sabalenka is the same way. She wasn’t playing at her best in that January swing of the previous year. Despite the fact that she claims she doesn’t feel fit, she had a successful year last year.

She nevertheless placed among the top eight. I have to constantly tell myself that this is life, as with all of these situations. There are ups and downs, so you just have to wait it out and keep putting in the effort till it comes.”
