Coco Gauff ‘screaming’ at opportunity to meet ‘Challengers’ star Zendaya

This wasn’t the first time the two had corresponded. After Gauff won the U.S. Open, Zendaya sent over some congratulatory flowers. Gauff said the gesture was the “coolest thing” about winning the title in New York.

In “Challengers,” Zendaya plays Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach after suffering a career-ending injury. Her character ultimately becomes the coach for her husband before getting involved in a love triangle with one of his opponents, who is also her former partner.

Gauff praised the star for how well she has been able to work alongside Gilbert to perfect the tennis role.

“[Gilbert] said that she picked it up decently well,” Gauff said. “I mean, it’s hard to replicate tennis, but one thing he did say, she is a hard worker and she was trying as hard as she can to make it as perfect as she could and that she’s a super-sweet girl.”
