Coco Gauff begins her European clay-court swing at the Mutua Madrid Open 2021. Spain’s 1000 category event runs from 29th April to 8th May on outdoor clay courts in the WTA Tournament schedule.
Ahead of this year’s red dirt season, American rising star competed for the first time on a green clay surface at the Volvo Car Open. Therein, Gauff played three excellent matches before falling to Tunisian No.1 Ons Jabeur in the quarterfinal.

Meanwhile, Coco Gauff posted a beautiful video of her training session on clay court on her social media page. It looks like that American would be in great shape before the European swing.
