Gauff Guns Down Trevisan To Reach Roland Garros Final vs Swiatek

By Scoop Malinowski

In a stunning display of accuracy, maturity, emotional fury and vintage American tennis, Coco Gauff gunned down Martina Trevisan 63 61 to reach her first Grand Slam singles final.

The ten years younger Gauff, age 18, endured the 59 ranked Italian’s gamesmanship and grunting distractions and also a trainer visit and never lost her composure or focus on the task at hand.

Gauff even raised her intensity by roaring CMONs in retaliation to Trevisan’s trickery. But nothing could stop Gauff today and she cruised to a dominant victory. She also managed to poke in a political message on court by writing END GUN VIOLENCE on the TV camera.

To win her first Grand Slam will require another level of tennis excellence from Gauff as she will meet Iga Swiatek in the final. The No. 1 ranked Polish woman annihilated Daria Kasatkina 62 61 and has now won 34 matches in a row, one short of Venus Williams’ record 35.

Swiatek won the Roland Garros title in 2020 vs American Sofia Kenin and has a 20-2 record overall at the red clay Grand Slam.

“It’s a pretty special moment, I’m really emotional, I’m so grateful to be in that place, to be healthy and able to play that game. I love playing here,” Swiatek commented in her on-court interview.

“It’s easier to play matches with that kind of support. I’ve felt it in every place I played this year, basically, which is still surprising for me.”

“I try to treat every match the same because when I’m going to realise this is one of the biggest matches of the season, it’s going to stress me out. I listen to music coming out onto the court. Today was Led Zeppelin. It is really pumping me up.”
