Coco Gauff's name will go down in history.The 19-year-old sensation defeated Karolina Muchová in the US Open quarterfinals on Thursday, 6-4, 7-5.
Although the victory came in straight sets, it was far from easy - the penultimate point was a 40-shot rally as Muchová desperately
tried to force a tiebreaker on her serve - but Gauff was able to break the point to seal the victory.
Gauff had six match points before closing out the match, one when she was up 5-3 in the second set and the other four on the last point.
However, the American clearly had the home-court advantage and won."Some of those points were so loud that I don't know if my ears are going to be OK," Gauff remarked.
She is the youngest American to reach the US Open final since the famous Serena Williams in 1999, when she was only 17 years old.
She would go on to win her first of 23 grand slam titles, defeating Martina Hingis.
At the time, Williams was the first African American woman to win a singles grand slam in the Open Era.
Gauff is in her second Grand Slam final, having reached the final of the 2022 French Open, where she was defeated by Iga Swiatek.
Her previous best finish in Queens was a quarterfinal appearance last year.
