Mike Tyson makes US Open appearance to watch Coco Gauff: ‘She’s going to be a big-time champion’

Gauff displayed all of those characteristics in her first round win, which turned out to be a grueling three-set match.

“Thank you New York for getting me through this match,” Gauff said after the match.

“It was a tough match and I wasn’t playing my best tennis,” she added. “I was able to overcome the adversity so I’m happy I was able to get through.

After dropping the first set 6-3, she was able to regroup and grab the second set 6-2. Gauff closed out the match with a 6-4 final set.

While Gauff is one of the favorites to win the tournament, Siegemund gave the teen a run for her money on night one. After going through three rounds of qualifying, the German came out in the match tough and confident, using her forehand slice and net play as a strong weapon. This is a combination that is quite rare — especially on the women’s side.
