Former world No. 1 junior Cori Gauff made her WTA debut in March 2019 at the Miami Open. Winning her opening match, she received a wild card into the qualifying draw at Wimbledon where she became the youngest player to qualify for the main draw in the tournament's history. Going on to reach the second week, 15-year-old Gauff rose to prominence when she defeated five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams. Although she lost in the third round, Gauff's technique and dedication on the court is awaited and welcomed in Grand Slams to come.
