The historic journey that Coco Gauff undertook three years ago, when she became the youngest tennis player in history to enter the Wimbledon main draw, at just 15 years old, gains prominence in this present from Paris, where the American, now 18, She will play her first Grand Slam final this Saturday (3:00 p.m., Eurosport) after beating the Italian Martina Trevisan 6-3, 6-1 on Thursday.

A few dates ago, the American received congratulations from Michelle Obama after graduating from high school. Gauff has an impact, the precocious Coconuta young woman whom tennis in her country looks at with a sparkle in her eyes and a gesture of supplication, since the reign of Serena Williams expired five years ago – the date of her last major, in Australia – and no better relay can be guessed than her

Currently, the United States does not have a single player in the top ten on the men’s circuit and only one player on the women’s, Danielle Collins (28 years old). For this reason, Gauff’s progression has long been seen as the straw to hold on to. He raised his first title in Linz and although he has not achieved major prizes, he has established himself in the noble zone and now rises in Paris.

Her triumph against Trevisan made her the youngest to reach the last round of a major tournament since Russia’s Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon 2004, aged 17; at the same time, she is the youngest in the final of Roland Garros since the access of the Belgian Kim Clijsters (18) in the 2011 edition.

However, Gauff faces the challenge of challenges. He will face the irreducible Iga Swiatek for the title, who continues to dispatch rivals like flies. Yesterday he got rid of Daria Kastkina (6-2 and 6-1) and equaled the best winning streak (34) of this century, in possession of Serena; she is therefore one trump away from catching up with Venus (35).

On the other hand, this Thursday the legendary Billie Jean King was honored for the 50th anniversary of her title in Paris.
