American teenager Coco Gauff is improving her game day by day since she turned into a professional tennis player. As a result, the 17-years-old is now standing as a 35th player in the WTA ranking. However, she has now unveiled what she is expecting from none other than herself.
With back-to-back stunning performances in Adelaide and Dubai, Gauff is now preparing herself ahead of the local WTA 1000 event Miami Open. Meanwhile, she answered several questions in a recent interview, especially about her career progression, expectations, and how she reacts to critics.
“I Definitely Feel Like I’m Progressing A Lot”, says Coco Gauff
Following Grand Slam fourth round appearances, top ten victories, American recently reached her first WTA 500 event’s semifinal and WTA 1000 event’s quarterfinal at the Adelaide International and Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships.
“I’m feeling great. I’m happy where I’m at but excited to go even further. I definitely feel like I’m progressing a lot, and right now, I like that I’m moving forward and being a lot more aggressive and definitely more confident in my strokes than I was a year ago,” Gauff said of her career progression.
“I Expect For Myself to just compete for my hardest”: Gauff
When asked about her expectations, the 2019 Linz Open champion replied that she anticipates herself to do her best and contest.
Gauff continued, “I mean, for me personally, there’s always going to be outside sources, but I try to be the focus on what I expect for myself.
And really, I expect myself to just compete for my hardest and try my hardest every point, and I mean, I go on the court every match believing that I can win no matter who the opponent is. And I just expect myself to do my best and compete, and then when I lose, I mean, I don’t like losing, so I try my best to win.”
“If You Focus On The Media, It Can Really Tear You Down,” says Coco Gauff
Needless to say that every celebrity would have to face criticism at a specific moment in their life.
When asked how she removes weeds, Gauff explained, “I feel like definitely, I’ve been successful at it. I mean, there’s been maybe one or two matches where it probably affected me, but I lost those matches, and I never said again, so what do I do? I just turn off my phone and just focus on myself, and ever since then, I’ve been doing a good job of tuning out what other people have to say.”
Coco Gauff also emphasised that it’s merely more essential to focus on your mindset. “whereas if you focus on the media, it can really tear you down, and I think I’ve done a pretty good job at that,” she concluded.
