Stunning Wimbledon result paves way for Coco Gauff in women’s draw



Coco Gauff had Saturday off, but the U.S. tennis star was arguably the day’s biggest winner.

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek was stunned in a third-round loss to unseeded Yulia Putintseva, clearing a walkway for Gauff to win her second grand slam.

Swiatek has been the biggest thorn in Gauff’s side on the women’s tour. In 12 career meetings, Swiatek leads 11-1, including wins at the last three French Opens.Gauff downed Britain’s Sonay Kartal 6-4, 6-0 on Friday and watched Swiatek fall to Kazakhstan’s Putintseva 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 a day later.Gauff, the world’s No. 2-ranked player, faces fellow American Emma Navarro next. Navarro came back from one set down to defeat Diana Shnaider for the first time in three tries on Friday to set up the all-American affair in Wimbledon’s fourth round.
