Caroline Garcia defeated Coco Gauff 6-3 6-4 at Flushing Meadows to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time
Caroline Garcia, the No. 17 seed from France, beat the 18-year-old American rising star Coco Gauff, who was playing in her maiden quarterfinal at the U.S. Open, in straight sets
the 28 yr old Gracia, who is from the French city of Lyon, didn't exhibit any signs of anxiety. She took control of the first four games in just 17 minutes, then cruised to a 6-3, 6-4 triumph.
Caroline Garcia has recently been unstoppable by nothing: Not even a sold-out audience of 23,859 people and rising American star Coco Gauff.
Garcia silenced the home crowd by playing the kind of aggressive, attacking tennis that got her her 13th straight victory, including timely serving, skillful volleys, and huge baseline hitting.
For both players, it was their first singles quarterfinal at the U.S. Open. In her maiden Grand Slam semifinal on Thursday, Caroline Garcia will take on Ons Jabeur, the current top-ranked Tunisian.
Coco Gauff, the American rising star, had the support of the crowd this Tuesday at the Arthur Ashe Stadium but it wasn’t enough to keep her in the tournament.
Ranked No. 1 in doubles, Gauff had beaten Garcia in their previous two singles matches, but Garcia with Mladenovic, defeated Gauff and Pegula in the a French Opens doubles final in June
