Wimbledon and a new surprise: this time, Gauff’s elimination

Sometimes even the best can fall and, on this occasion, Coco Gauff (2nd in the WTA rankings) said goodbye to Wimbledon in style. The American could not find her best tennis and said goodbye to the London Grand Slam after falling 6-4 and 6-3 to her compatriot Emma Navarro (17th).

A match in which Coco was seen to be much more erratic than usual, with three double faults and a total of 25 unforced errors to give her rival the necessary confidence to play a good role and get ahead on the scoreboard. And so it was, took advantage of the world No. 2’s bad moment to claim her second victory against a Top 10 player.

This way, Navarro has reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career, which allows her to position herself, starting next week, as world number 14, her best ranking to date.

In addition, beating one of the sensations of the circuit gives her the confidence necessary to prevail against any opponent, even more so knowing that Gauff was the clear favorite to win the major trophy after the defeat of Iga Swiatek (1ª).

This victory adds to one of the most important of his career along with that of Naomi Osaka (113th), former No. 1 and four-time Grand Slam championfor the second round of Wimbledonante Elina Svitolina (21st) and Aryna Sabalenka (3rd) for the third and fourth round of the WTA 1000 de Indian Wells 2024.

A Navarro who is climbing more and more and who now must overcome Jasmine Paolini (7th) if she wants to be among the top four in the London competition. Watch the action from all the Wimbledon courts LIVE on Disney+.
