Coco Gauff boosts her coaching team as she rehires former mentor

 

 

According to L’Équipe, “Faurel responded positively to Coco Gauff’s request to join her staff alongside Brad Gilbert”.It will be the 43-year-old’s second stint as a member of Gauff coaching set-up with his first spell lasting from March 2019 to December 2020.

The American announced her arrival in top-level tennis during that period as she became the youngest qualifier at Wimbledon in June 2019 when she reached the main draw at 15 years and three months. She went on to reach the fourth round at the grass-court Grand Slam, beating the great Venus Williams in the first round.Faurel was also part of the team when Gauff won her maiden WTA Tour singles title later in 2019 as she lifted the Upper Austria Linz trophy in October.

But they went their separate ways in December 2020 as Gauff opted to go with her father as her main coach while Faurel went on to work with ATP player Alexandre Müller as well as rising WTA star Mirra Andreeva.

In February this year, Faurel told Olympics.com: “When I saw Coco Gauff at 10, I knew she was going to be an outstanding athlete.

“She’s clearly the fastest and most explosive player on the circuit by a long way. She’s a real competitive player, she’s a winning player.

“At fifteen, she beat Venus at Wimbledon. At sixteen, she beat Naomi Osaka, world number one in Australia. She has this winning instinct, which is a huge quality.”
