This past Monday, at just 15-years old, tennis player Cori “Coco” Gauff became the youngest woman to win in the first round of the ladies’ singles since 1991 when Martina Navratilova set the previous record. And what’s more, she beats 5-time Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams, while she’s at it.
Not only did she set this surreal record, she is also the youngest player to reach a U.S. open junior final and the youngest female to win a Grand Slam qualifying match. In addition, she is also the youngest player to advance to the Wimbledon main draw through qualifying rather than direct entry.
